Getting to Know Your Healthcare (Plus Giveaway!)

Getting to Know Your Healthcare (Plus Giveaway!)


Top view of family paper chain on a doctor desk. Medical worktable with keyboard, blue stethoscope, pills and eyeglasses. Family healthcare, medicine and insurance concept.

The post was sponsored by UnitedHealthcare who also provided the $100.00 gift card to a randomly selected commenter on my blog (details below).

As a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) I live and breathe good nutrition, but part of a healthy lifestyle is making sure I see my physicians regularly and so do my children. Taking preventative measures with my health (like getting regular mammograms) and checking out any minor problems (like when my 9-year old has a fever) can help prevent long-term and more severe issues.

When I was a teenager, I worked in my father’s ophthalmology office and assisted with the insurance claims. This helped me understand how insurance worked. But I’ll be the first to admit that healthcare plans are confusing. That’s why UnitedHealthcare put together two healthcare games to help you understand the system. Even better, once you complete each one, you’ll be entered to win a sweepstakes.

Enter To Win!
After you complete each sweepstakes, tell me how you did in my comments area below and you’ll be entered to win a $100.00 gift card sponsored by UnitedHealthcare (details below). One randomly selected participant will be selected on December 1, 2016. When entering, be sure to include your email address in the “Email” field when posting your comment so I can let you know if you won. You do not need to purchase anything to win. Only open to legal residents of the 50 U.S. states, D.C. or Puerto Rico, and you must be at least 18 years of age to enter.

Here’s how to enter each UnitedHealthcare sweepstakes:

Sweepstakes 1: Are You A Health Plan Pro


Webite: click here
Runs until: November 30, 2016
How to play: In each of 4 screens you’ll be asked to answer various questions and then get a final score. You will then receive a score on a scale of 1 to 5 stars for how ready you are to purchase a health care plan. You also enter your name and email to enter this sweepstakes. The four stages that it will cover include:

  • This UnitedHealthcare quiz will help you learn more about terms and generic health care information
  • Play the match game that teaches you all about health plan accounts like the HSA. FSA, and HRA that can help you afford your regular check ups or other doctors visits.
  • Use UHC’s slider tool to decipher the difference between the ration between out-of-pocket costs and premiums.
  • Figure out which services are most or least important by ranking them. You could be wasting money by going to the ER, when you should be heading to Urgent Care or using Virtual Visits through your health plan

    Hi Toby! I did pretty well on this but I missed the question on health care savings accounts. I only got the flex spending portion correct. It can’t hurt to expand my knowledge in this area. Have a great week! Thanks for the great giveaway!
