Elements of a Healthy Diet

Putting down the French Fries and Soda can pay dividends. So can finding healthier ways to enjoy an afternoon snack.

A proper diet can go a long way towards helping you live a healthier life. That said, many of us struggle to make positive changes to our dietary habits. However, a proper diet can help you improve your health. This can even help you save on your health insurance costs.

Often, improving your eating habits seems easier said than done. But with the help of your insurance coverage, you may be able to get access to diet counseling.

Diet Counseling Coverage by Insurance

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires most health plans to cover a set of preventative services. The ACA includes diet counseling for adults with a high risk of chronic disease among these covered services. This means that qualifying adults should be able to get diet counseling free of charge.

Should an adult face a risk of chronic illness — such as diabetes, heart disease or other conditions — they can often make lifestyle changes to reduce or even eliminate the chance that they may get sick. Changing diets can often help individuals form a nutritional foundation to better manage their chronic risks. By adding or eliminating certain food from their diet, people can also reduce the chance that the condition may worsen.

By maintaining a healthy diet, policyholders may be able to reduce the chances that they will have to seek care for medical conditions. Your policy usually can't charge you more based on the amount of care you receive. However, by avoiding certain medical insurance claims, you might reduce your chances of out-of-pocket costs related to deductibles or co-payments. So a healthy diet could, indeed, improve your financial security.

Diet Tips You Can Follow Today

Many Americans have special dietary needs. However, there are common dietary changes that can improve overall health. You may be able to improve your diet by:

  • Cutting out fatty foods high in carbohydrates
  • Maintaining a diet of lean meats, fish and fresh vegetables
  • Drinking plenty of water while avoiding high-sugar or high-caffeine drinks
  • Snacking on fruits, vegetables and nuts as opposed to fried, sugary or salted foods

Your diet counselor and physician can often help you pinpoint a diet plan that meets your needs. And since diet counseling is classified by insurers as preventative care, you can get this service for free.
