Live Longer with No-Cost Preventive Care

applesYou are more likely to live a longer, healthier and more satisfying life by getting the preventive services (screening tests, vaccinations and health advice) your doctor recommends.

That’s because preventive services can identify serious health issues (like cancer, heart disease and diabetes) early, when they are most treatable.

Here’s what you can do:

  • When your provider begins seeing patients for preventive care again, schedule an annual wellness exam and ask your doctor what preventive services are right for you.
  • Search for an in-network doctor to get the best benefit coverage. Remember, there is no cost to you—$0 copay, $0 deductible— for recommended preventive services.

Tens of thousands of lives would be saved each year, simply by managing cardiovascular disease through preventive care services (checking blood pressure and cholesterol and adopting a heart-healthy lifestyle). [Source:]
