When it comes to medical tests and treatments, more is not always better. Although a number of them are commonly prescribed, many are frequently overused and unnecessary. That’s why your 1199SEIU Benefit Funds would like to connect you with ChoosingWisely.org — an initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation — to assist you in making sound healthcare decisions for yourself and your family, as well as help stretch valuable benefit dollars.

Being informed — knowing how, where and when to access medical care — can help you protect your health, avoid hassles and recover from illness faster. Helpful resources include lists of tests and procedures that may be overused, questions to ask your physician, and brochures and videos that explain appropriate care recommended by medical specialty societies.
