4 Ways You Can Save Time and Money On Your Health Care
December 16, 2020
These days, life can get busy. That’s why you need health care benefits that work for you! There are ways you can save both time and money on your health care needs. At Ascension, we wanted to make it easier for everyone to make the most out of their benefits. That’s why we put together these 3 easy ways you can save time and money on your health care:
1. Get 90-day refills on your prescription
Did you know that getting a 90-day refill on your prescription can actually save you money? Instead of paying 3 copays, if you do the 90-day refill, then you can get your medicine for the price of 2 copays. That is saving you money on your medications. Also, refill limits have been lifted and you can get another refill before 2021, so make sure you get your prescription refilled before the New Year. Not only will it save you money, but it will also save you time! You won’t have to worry about refilling your medicine again until next year.
2. Use the Ascension Network (Tier 1)
Using Tier 1 of your benefits will give you the most cost-effective health care. The Ascension Network (Tier 1) features providers that have partnered with Ascension to provide high-quality healthcare to our members. This is where you will get the most cost-effective care. How do you find Tier 1 providers? You can search the Ascension Network on mySmartHealth.org by selecting “Find a Location” or “Find a Doctor” from the top navigation bar. When selecting Ascension Network providers or locations, you are receiving the highest level of benefits with the lowest out-of-pocket costs.
3. Utilize the Automated Benefit Services (ABS) Member Portal & app
You can save a lot of valuable time by utilizing the ABS Member Portal and app. The member portal allows you to access all of your important benefits information like your ID cards, EOB’s, plan deductibles, and more! You can access these documents with ease, so you don’t have to worry about wasting time sorting through all of your physical documents. It’s a quick and convenient way to help you manage all of your benefits information in one spot!
4. Participate in the 2021 Well-being ProgramAnother way you can save money on health care is by participating in the 2021 Well-being Program.
