Doctor Oz did a show called the Insider’s Guide to Getting the Best for the Least to teach us how to save money at the doctor’s office. Dr Oz knows that 15 million of us are unemployed and millions of others are scrambling just to make ends meet. Feeding our families and paying bills can really start to add up and most people are making less money than just 10 years ago. In addition, 45 million of us do not have health insurance and others with health insurance are under-insured, which means that 50% of people are skipping doctors visits, dentist visits and prescriptions. Dr Oz gave a list of how to dramatically cut your medical expenses at four different medical professionals.
Free Pap Smears
Dr Evelyn Minaya, an ObGyn, has been a practicing doctor for 16 years and told Dr Oz that sometimes patients have the misconception that doctor’s are just about the business. But most doctors are there to take care of you and actually care about you (though sometimes I have run into doctors for whom this is definitely not the case). I was shocked to hear Dr. Minaya say that you can get a free pap smear the 2nd Friday of each January. So this January, lets all promise to get get our free pap smear. You just have to print something out at NCCC-Online.org to get a Free Pap Smear.
