Simpson Financial Group  Preparing for life’s uncertainties

Child and DoctorThe Centers for Disease Control has a lot to say about the importance of managing a child’s weight to ensure the child remains healthy. According to the government agency, childhood obesity has doubled in children over the last three decades. In 2012, in fact, about one-third of all children and teens living in the United States were either considered overweight or obese. As a parent, what can you do to ensure your child remains healthy? You may already have some tools to help you in your health insurance plan.

How Can Health Insurance Help?

The first step in helping your child to remain healthy and the ideal weight is to understand their current health status at this point. Of course, this may change over their lifetime, but getting an idea of how healthy your child is right now is an essential first step. Your health insurance plan likely offers the help you need through wellness checkups and health screenings. If you have this type of policy, you should be able to bring your child in to see your family doctor at least one time a year, often more frequently if the child is younger. That’s a good way to learn where you are in terms of healthy weight.

Guidance and Support

Another step you can take is to use the resources provided within your health insurance plan to help you. For example, your plan may offer insurance coverage for a dietician who can help you and your child to eat more balanced meals. You may be able to work with a professional for weight courses and programs, especially if the child is considered obese. In many ways, these types of support groups can be very powerful to today’s family unit. They provide an understanding place where you can get the real help you need.

With health insurance, you get the support you need to understanding your child’s health. And, you’ll get a wide range of support to help you get your child back on track. In the long and short term, this can enhance their quality of life and help them to remain healthy longer. More so, this could be coverage that you are already paying for. Why not take advantage of it?
