With the end of the year upon us, we’re seeing a lot of people coming in to rent knee scooters after leg surgery. Many are choosing this as the right time to get surgery, to prevent seeing a deductible in the coming new year.
Next year will likely see an increase in health insurance costs. The premiums in the Affordable Care Act are becoming more expensive. No matter what your politics, regardless the right and wrong of the current administration’s actions, one thing is indisputable–Our current President is not in favor of Obamacare, is not promoting it, and he’s not funding it at the same level that his predecessor did.
Health Insurance Premiums Going Up in 2018
It’s expected that the subsidies that President Obama offered as part of the legislation will not continue into the new year, which means that insurance companies are increasing the premiums on many of their policies to make-up the difference. It’s expected that consumers will see 27% increase in premiums in 2018.
Because of this, now may be a smart time to move forward on that leg, ankle, or foot surgery.
Renting a Knee Scooter During Recovery from Leg Surgery
While recovering over Christmas and New Years, don’t feel like you need to sit at home binging on Netflix. Get a knee scooter and go have some fun. Your life doesn’t need to end while you heal.
Many times things get more hectic at work during the Christmas period. Many companies, especially those in the retail sector see mad rushes during the holidays.
It may make financial sense to schedule your surgery at the end of the year, but it’s often not a convenient time.
Avoid Mobility Frustration Post Surgery
Because of this, consider using a knee scooter during your recovery time.
