Staying healthy and looking after your wellbeing has always been important! Every part of our lives relies on being in good health, but we only tend to seek medical attention when we become ill.
We routinely attend dental and eyesight check-ups, but we underestimate the importance of a regular wellness screening (also known as a health screening). By the time we develop or take note of any symptoms our health could already be compromised.
With Elixi Medical Insurance, we believe that peace of mind starts with you taking charge of your health. To help you with early detection of chronic issues, such as diabetes and hypertension, you can go for regular health screenings.
This article aims to answer a few important questions about wellness screenings.
