8 Tips

Here are 8 tips that can help people in this age bracket stay the healthiest they can for their loved ones and themselves:

  2. Shop around for your prescriptions and tests, too.
  3. If money is tight and you’re looking at some considerable medical expenses, talk to your doctor (or dentist) about it.
  4. Set up a health savings account and/or flexible savings account.
  5. Think about long-term-care health insurance.
