Preventive care can save a bundle on health-care costs – and extend your longevity. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has checklists of recommended tests for men and women to help spot potential problems before they become dangerous and more costly health concerns.

If your insurance doesn’t cover all the screenings you want, free or reduced-cost screenings are often available through health organizations, especially during health awareness months, such as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Check the Web sites of national organizations like the American Cancer Society for more details on events and resources in your community.
