Preventive services

Health care services, tests, and screenings preformed to keep you healthy. Insurance plans are now required to provide these services at no additional cost to you. They include certain vaccines; diet and obesity counseling; testing for certain sexually transmitted infections; and screenings for blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, colorectal cancer, and depression.

Preventive care for women includes contraceptive methods (like birth control pills), mammograms and other cancer screenings, certain maternal care services for expectant mothers, domestic violence screenings, and well-woman visits.
