Time to connect to Health Savings
February is Wise Health Care Consumer Month, a perfect time to connect to savings on medicine and other health care costs. Members of Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives can do can do just that with the free Touchstone Energy Co-op Connections program.
Just by being a co-op member, you can save money on prescriptions and healthcare expenses such as vision and dental — in February, and every month. Being “connected” means you get more than 150,000 discounts from businesses in our area and national companies. There are also cash-back offers for online shoppers and deals for travelers.
It was a dental offer that convinced Billie Smith to give Co-op Connections a try. The teacher’s savings story began in 2016 when her son was getting braces.
“I saw an ad at the orthodontist’s office about how I could get a discount through Co-op Connections,” she said. Thanks to their “powerful connection,” the Smiths netted a 20 percent discount on their orthodontic bill.
The discount was again applied when a second child needed braces. The Smiths saved a whopping $1,758 in all, thanks to White, Greer & Maggard Orthodontics participating in the program.
“Thinking about the things we could do by saving that money — just by being co-op members — was great,” Billie said.
She now looks for a Co-op Connections discount whenever she shops. It’s easy to check www.connections.coop to find a list of businesses that participate in the co-op discount program.
Get connected, and keep more money in your pocket. Co-op Connections — it’s just one more benefit of being a member of Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives.
