There are benefits for getting check-ups and stuff that we all tend to put off, like the dreaded colonoscopy.  Today, I got a flu shot, a tetnus shot and a vacine against shingles.  I also found out that my cough may just be from my blood pressure medicine and my high blood pressure could be helped by an adjustment in same meds. 

I also have three tests being scheduled for conditions that have been ignored way too long.  Added bonus; a $50 coupon for Barnes & Noble for doing my part in staying healthy.  This is what insurance should be about.
