It’s easy to let caring for yourself fall off your priority list. With work and family responsibilities, self-care is often an afterthought, and a lack of health insurance all but guarantees neglect for your personal well-being. 

Re-enrolling in Medicaid coverage or other affordable options can help you make yourself the priority you should be, something that will benefit not just you but your entire family. Here are some surprising and powerful ways that prioritizing yourself ensures a happier, healthier family: 

  • Your stress and sleepless nights don’t just affect you. Health and energy levels are infectious to those around you, and if you are stressed about physical ailments or financial concerns, chances are everyone else at home is, too. 
  • Children model the behavior they see from us. When you are unable to prioritize your physical and mental health because of lack of coverage, your family members often become unwilling to disclose their own issues and make unhealthy choices around diet, sleep and overall health. 
  • The only predictable thing about life is how unpredictable it can be. When you have medical or mental health issues that are left untreated, you are less likely to withstand the challenges that come your way. Prioritizing your health leaves you better equipped and more resilient to handle life’s unexpected hurdles.
  • Prioritizing your health allows you to make the most of your time together with your family. You have more energy and focus for family activities. Instead of being depleted and drained, you can be fully engaged in the present, precious moments. 
  • A healthier you is a more productive and more successful you at work. Taking care of lingering issues or preventing issues from arising can help with focus at work. Better focus at work can help ensure stability on the job and a more secure financial future. 

Medicaid coverage is not just healthcare; it’s a pathway to financial relief, peace of mind, and a brighter future for you and your loved ones.
