What should you do first if you have high deductible but need lots of tests at 55?

In brief: Spend the money

A high deductible means you will be paying the first dollars for your examination and testing until you pay in that $$$ amount.
You should prioritize testing in terms of significance and treatability but once you spend the deductible, it matters little. You got the high deductible to lower your premium and of course this puts you at risk for having to pay that amount if needed.
