Preventive care is routine health care that maintains health and well-being and to help prevent disease, disability, and death. Under the Affordable Care Act, all health plans are required to cover a set of preventive services at no cost to you. This means you will not have to pay a co-payment or coinsurance or even meet your deductible to receive certain preventive services.
Common examples include:
- Annual physicals
- Recommended screenings
- Diet and alcohol misuse counseling
