Remember that song from The Lion King, "The Circle of Life"? That soundtrack plays in my head these days.
As a teenager I thought, "Wow, my parents have a lot of people to take care of." We lived in New York City with one set of grandparents next door and the other set across the street. My parents had all of them plus three daughters depending on them for A LOT.
Do you have expensive prescriptions? Do you have prescriptions that aren’t covered by insurance?
While there are many ways to save, the freshbenies prescription savings program might be right for you! Why do I use the word “might?” Good question! Let’s dish…

When’s the last time you thought about preparing your will? Did you actually have it done, or did you think about it and then decide to put it off?
Telehealth has made huge strides in popularity over the last few years, but do you ever wonder if it's safe? I’ve been using it for about 8 years and have heard success stories from hundreds of people who use it. Still, there are those who haven’t used it and ask me the same common questions.

Are you ready for 2017? I recently read the most common resolutions have to do with saving money and being healthy.

I was sick for over 3 weeks and nothing was helping. I learned my employer gave us freshbenies for free so I tried it.
I was able to set an appointment time for a doctor to call me (since I was at work).

The doctor that helped me was super friendly and even had me laughing a few times. This is such a great service :)
