Preventive Services Covered at No Cost

We want to remind employees that Health Care Reform requires that certain preventive services are covered at no cost. Unfortunately, some doctor’s offices continue to charge a co-pay or coinsurance amount. It’s up to us to be good health care consumers and remind the doctor’s office that they do not have to pay for:

  • Annual Wellness Checkups

  • Adult Preventive Services: STI screening, Immunization Vaccines, Blood Pressure and Cholesterol screenings, Colorectal cancer screenings and more!

  • Women’s Preventive Care Services: Well Woman Visits, STI screenings, Cervical

  • Cancer Screenings, Breast Cancer Mammography screenings

  • Well pregnancy visits after the first visit

  • Well baby visits plus immunizations up to age 2

 Preventive services are the first step in maintaining great health!
