Your health and wallet are not at odds. Here's your guide to healthy living on a tight budget.
No matter your budget, there’s no reason to take a rain check on your health and well-being. It’s possible to maintain a balanced diet, get fit, and see a doctor—all without breaking the bank. The key is to come up with a plan. Here are 21 ways to get you started.
Shop Around for Medical Tests
If you’re suffering from a chronic condition such as back pain and need an MRI to help identify the problem, check the costs at different facilities in your neighborhood. These tests can be expensive — anywhere from $400 to $2,700 — but their prices may vary at different clinics and hospitals and you can save up to $2,000 in some situations. Your health is well worth the extra time and effort.
