Should you change your Product Option?
First, check how much of your benefits you used during the year on our member portal. If you used more than the benefits available to you, you should definitely consider switching to a higher Product Option or consider one of the Renaissance Health Benefit Builders. If you used less than the benefits available to you, consider how much you may need during 2015.

Assess your family’s healthcare needs (lifestyle, ages, the range of medical services needed and medical history). You and / or your family’s use of typical day-to-day benefits such as acute and chronic medicine, as well as factors such as hereditary diseases, could influence your decision.

Your ability to pay for unforeseen, high medical costs out of your pocket or without having to borrow money is an important aspect when choosing your cover.

Also consider the Benefit Builders if you know that you will need a higher benefit level on specific out-of-hospital services. Then calculate what you can afford to pay per month.

Make sure that the medical aid subsidy provided by your employer covers the difference between the contributions of the Product Option you need, and what you can afford.

Quick health... coping with depression. Don't make major decisions when you are depressed, as your emotions may prevent a view of the whole picture. Wait until your mood lightens, or postpone implementing the decision until later.

Better eating... Eat three hours before bedtime and then stop. Your metabolism slows down when you sleep so you shift from fat burning to fat storage.

Monday magic... Don't judge people's importance in the workplace. Talk to the cleaning staff members and to the people who perform many of the administrative support functions. These people help you and deserve your respect!

Weekend wellness... Go window shopping for fun. Find something you want, but don't buy immediately. Having something to look forward to gives life meaning so a delay can improve life considerably.

Quick fitness tip... If you skip a meal before your workout, your metabolism will be slower when you do the workout, so you may not achieve your fitness goals.
