Have You Met Your Deductible? Good Time to Schedule an Allergy Test

Updated on Friday, October 6, 2023

Have You Met Your Deductible?

The end of the year is a good time to think about how to get the most from your health insurance, including scheduling an appointment for an allergy test. Both allergy testing and treatments are covered by most insurance plans, so if you’ve met your deductible for the year, your out-of-pocket costs could be minimal, or possibly zero. If you choose allergy shots as your treatment option, starting them while your deductible is met has additional financial benefit. Under most insurance plans your deductible will reset to the full amount beginning on January 1. Make sure you and your family members get the most from your health insurance this year.

The winter season not only brings colder temperatures, but also cold and flu season. Both can impact people with asthma. The best way to stay healthy during the coming months is to make sure your asthma is well controlled going into the season. So now is also a good time to schedule a visit with your allergist to discuss any needed changes to your current management plan.

Don’t Suffer Through Another Atlanta Pollen Season — Prepare For Spring Now

Winter is a great time to help your body prepare for the spring allergy season. Depending on the results from testing, our allergists will determine the best way to treat your allergic symptoms. If allergen immunotherapy (shots, drops, or in some cases tablets) is recommended, you can start building your body’s resistance to your specific allergic triggers now. Don’t wait until you are miserable to start treating your allergy symptoms.
