Yes, insurance plans are now required to cover preventive care visits and screenings with no cost-sharing.
Under the Affordable Care Act, most insurance plans created after March 23, 2010, are required to pay for all of the costs for wellness and prevention services.
That means if you are covered in one of these plans, you will not have to pay anything to receive these important services.
Getting preventive care is an important way for you and your family to:
- Stay healthy avoid or delay disease and illness
- Stay active and productive
- Reduce health care costs
You might skip preventive care because of the costs. The new law encourages everyone to receive these important services and catch any health problems at their earliest stages.
