TSCRA Insurance Services Shares Importance of Back-to-School Preventative Health Care
Date:8/20/2009

Although summer is almost over, the spread of illness is in full swing. Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Insurance Services is helping its communities get ready for the illnesses that come along with the new school year by equipping them with important preventative care measures that will not only save them money, but also help them maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) August 20, 2009 -- Although summer is almost over, the spread of illness is in full swing. Preparing students for school with new supplies, books, backpacks, cell phone covers, and ringtones is only part of the necessary preparation. Many illnesses start within schools and spread to surrounding communities. United States health officials are warning schools and parents of the upcoming rapid spread of illnesses contracted over the summer, particularly H1N1 virus, commonly referred to as the swine flu.

Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Insurance Services is helping its communities get ready for the illnesses that come along with the new school year by equipping them with important preventative care measures that will not only save them money, but also help them maintain a healthy lifestyle. These include the top five reasons students miss school, a preparation checklist for parents, and facts about the H1N1 virus.

The best ways to avoid injuries, diseases, and other serious illnesses are to maintain healthy eating and exercising habits, as well as taking advantage of preventative health care services such as screenings, medical history, physical exams, and risk assessment.

"We know how quickly viruses and other illnesses can spread, especially when children go back to school," said Jerri McDonald, executive director of Insurance Services at TSCRA. "Kids aren't the only ones who need preventative care. It is vital to the health of our communities and inside our homes to keep ourselves healthy with healthy eating and exercising habits, routine check-ups, and important immunizations."

But McDonald says some health providers put an annual cap on preventative care benefits, leaving customers with high out-of-pocket expenses when these situations arise. TSCRA Insurance Services believes it's important for people to be covered for preventative health care, not only to save them money, but also to encourage them to take advantage of their insurance by scheduling preventative health exams with their physicians. Preventative care is a core element of TSCRA's plan. With America spending more than one out of every five dollars on health care, citizens cannot afford any surprises when it comes to their health care costs.
