Preventive care services

Preventive Care

Preventive care is an important part of getting and staying as healthy as possible. Our preventive care services can help you and your family avoid developing health problems and prevent minor issues from becoming major health concerns such as diabetes and colon cancer. Examples of preventive care services include:

  • Yearly check-ups
  • Screenings
  • Immunizations

Most Independence Blue Cross health plans include coverage for certain designated preventive care services with no cost-sharing.* This means that you do not have to pay copays, coinsurance, or deductibles. If a service is not considered preventive (e.g., diagnostic procedure, ongoing treatment for an existing condition) or you don’t fall within the coverage guidelines, charges may apply.

Which Preventive Services Do You Need?

Use the Preventive Care Guidelines tool to see which services are recommended for your age and gender. Next, ask your doctor if these services are appropriate for you, and, if needed, schedule an appointment. Log in to our member portal to find a doctor to provide the care you need.
