Summer Vacation Healthy Travel Checklist
Posted on May 29, 2012 at 08:30 AM EDT
While June 20 signals the official start of summer, vacation season already is in full swing. With this in mind, Health Net, Inc. (NYSE:HNT) is sharing a healthy travel checklist that’s worth reviewing before heading off on those summer trips.
“When people go on vacation, they tend to focus on things like reserving hotels and packing clothes,” says Jonathan Scheff, M.D., chief medical officer for Health Net, Inc. “Most of us don’t give much thought to health-related questions like ‘Does my insurance plan provide coverage if I become ill or injured anywhere in the United Sates as well as anywhere in the world?’” Adding, “That’s why Health Net is encouraging people – before they zip up their suitcases – to take a health care inventory of sorts.”
