Preventive Health Care
Preventive care is vital to ensuring good health throughout one's life. From preventing illnesses to detecting problems while they are still in an early stage, preventive care should be a regular part of your health care regimen.
Preventive Medical Care
Our medical plans provide full coverage of preventive care when you use in-network providers. 100% coverage is only applicable to the covered services administered at the recommended frequency according to your plan's preventive care schedule. (Note that any services you receive that are not on the schedule will be paid according to your plan—coinsurance, copays and deductibles may apply.)
