Controll your health costs by asking questions

We all complain about the cost of healthcare, but you could be adding to the costs by not asking questions:

1) If your doctor is prescribing you drugs, ask if there is a generic version available.

2) If you've been requested to go to a different location for lab tests, inquire if the services can be performed by your plan's network provider.

3) If you're a Medicare supplement recipient, inquire if the doctor or hospital either accepts Medicare's assignment or if they bill more than what Medicare will pay; This one inquiry could save you possible thousands of dollars.
