Medical History (Freebie!): Putting Microsoft Excel to Work for You

My family has had individual insurance coverage for several years.  Filling out those insurance applications is a complete bear, and after the birth of my second daughter, we re-applied to drop my maternity coverage (super expensive, but not compared to paying for having a baby!!).  Filling out these applications AGAIN made me wish I kept better track of medical issues and doctor's visits.  Using the Explanation of Benefits forms from insurance payments doesn't help very much to really remember the circumstances surrounding doctor's visits.  So I went to my go-to application for tracking information - Microsoft Excel!!

I quickly created a spreadsheet for keeping track of our family Medical History.  I based the information captured on the questions from the insurance application.  Now I record any doctor's visits or medical issues we have in one place as they occur.  All the information I would need to remember the issue, or fill out another insurance application, is right at my fingertips.

Email me or contact me on my website for a free download of this file!!  Also let me know if you have any other household information that could benefit from a customized Excel spreadsheet!  How do you use Microsoft Excel to make life easier??
