Go beyond the tests at 9Health Fair April 28

Special to The PREVIEW
Evidence shows that you can lower your life insurance costs by providing information as to your good health.
A local business owner, member of the Chamber of Commerce, volunteer and part of the managing team of Pagosa’s 9Health Fair was successful in obtaining life insurance and dropping her insurance premiums by 60 percent. Here’s how she did it.
Last year, she had the battery of tests offered at our 9Health Fair. The cost of the blood work (only $35) was much lower than through her health care provider. The results turned out to be excellent. As a parent with a family, she carries term life insurance at a million dollars of coverage. She decided to look for better prices. She submitted her health fair test results with her annual physical. She is now paying a monthly premium that is 39 percent of what she was formerly paying for the same coverage.
For this hardworking, successful, local community- and family minded entrepreneur, this was a boon to her efforts.
Blood tests and screenings are not just for identification of potential health problems. You can use the information for many other benefits, including your peace of mind.
Come to Pagosa Springs High School on April 28 any time from 7 to 11 a.m. There is so much that can be learned, whether you take advantage of the minimal cost blood test panel for $35, add on more extensive tests, have vision or breast screenings, attend the educational programs or just meet health professionals who offer their services.
We know how important it is to get blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, triglycerides and more checked so that we can stay apprised of markers that help inform us of our health status. Education, instruction and learning are also important.
The 9Health Fair offers assessments, testings and education. Lifesaving blood tests are a great way to ward off potential problems. Arrive with your friends or meet them there.
Contributions and local business support are needed and greatly appreciated.
