Annual Check Ups Are Important for Your Health
OH, and They’re Free!
What is an annual check up?
An annual check up is a visit to a health care provider, like a doctor or nurse practitioner, where the provider conducts tests to get a status check on your overall health. It’s like taking your car in to check the engine, headlights, and A/C, just to make sure everything is running as it should.
Annual check ups are important for keeping tabs on your health and catching any potential problems early. Even better, preventive care, like check-ups, are now FREE with a health plan.
