Free Preventative Services:
From the Health and Human Services website and their partner websites, here are some examples of what is covered, without co-pays, co-insurance, or deductibles.
For Women: Women’s Preventive Services Guidelines
For Children: Recommendations for Preventive Pediatric Health Care
Make sure the doctor’s office bills you correctly for “Preventive” services. If you see the doctor for preventive services only, you should not see a medical bill. We suggest that if you go to see the doctor for preventive services, do not talk about or have any other services performed. This way, your No Cost $0 dollar Co-Pay preventive service will remain free, and you should not see a bill. Make sure to be careful to stay within your network for preventative care.
Those preventive services rated an A or B rating from the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force:
NOTE: (Please check for changes and updates regularly as these recommendations do change from time to time – call “member services” on the back of your insurance card)
Children (0-17): Coverage includes regular pediatrician visits, vision and hearing screening, developmental assessments, immunizations, and screening and counseling to address obesity and help children maintain a healthy weight.
Women (18-64): Coverage includes cancer screening such as pap smears for those ages 21 to 64, mammograms for those ages 50 to 64, and colonoscopy for those ages 50 to 64, recommended immunizations such as HPV vaccination for those ages 19 to 26, flu shots for all adults, and meningococcal and pneumococcal vaccinations for high-risk adults, healthy diet counseling and obesity screening, cholesterol and blood pressure screening, screening for sexually-transmitted infections and HIV, depression screening, and tobacco-use counseling. For plan years (in the individual market, policy years) beginning on or after August 1, 2012, additional preventive services specific to women, such as well-woman visits, screening for gestational diabetes, domestic violence screening and counseling, prescriptions, FDA-approved contraception, must be covered with no cost sharing.
Men (18-64): Coverage includes recommended immunizations such as flu shots for all adults and meningococcal and pneumococcal vaccinations for high-risk adults, cancer screening including colonoscopy for adults 50 to 64, healthy diet counseling and obesity screening, cholesterol and blood pressure screening, screening for HIV, depression screening, and tobacco-use counseling.
**PLEASE NOTE** – If your doctor bills 2 separate bills for your one visit, you will be billed for the portion of the office visit that was not preventative. For example, if you see a doctor for a routine physical, and in the same visit you need your prescription refilled, IF the doctor bills 2 separate bills for that visit, the physical will be free, but the prescription refill portion of that visit will be charged. IF the doctor bills everything on 1 bill, you will not be charged. We suggest that if you go to see the doctor for preventive services, do not talk about or have any other services performed. This way, your No Cost $0 dollar Co-Pay preventive service will remain free, and you should not see a bill. Be careful to stay within your network for preventive care.
