Did you know November is #NationalHealthySkin month? It is easy to forget about the health of our skin, which is the biggest organ in our bodies. Skin is very important for keeping us safe from the weather, but it can also get sick, including skin cancer. Screenings for skin cancer are very important for finding it early, which can make a huge difference in treatment and healing.
Preventative skin screenings are often included in annual physicals and are hence covered by insurance. Preventative therapies for skin cancer may or may not be covered, though. Removal of a suspicious mole, for example, may be covered. Make sure you contact your insurance company and fully grasp the nuances of your policy.
Early diagnosis and peace of mind depend on routine skin checks. Knowing the specifics of your insurance coverage is essential, since certain preventive skin cancer therapies may be covered. Schedule a skin check right now with Dr. Amy Huang to ensure the health of your skin and body.
