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
Most Independence Blue Cross health plans include coverage for certain designated preventive care services at no cost to you.* 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. Or view all preventive care services here. Next, ask your doctor if these services are appropriate for you and schedule an appointment, if needed. Need a doctor? Log in to find one.
