Annual visits with your PCP, vaccinations (like the flu shot) and certain routine tests and screenings are examples of preventive care.
These preventive services, and more, are covered at no ($0) out-of-pocket costs to you when received by an in-network provider*:
Telehealth may be used for annual preventive visits or other appointments if no labs, physical exam, screenings or vaccines are needed. Talk with your primary care provider if you are interested in a telehealth appointment.
Some health care terms are used the same way when they may, in fact, mean something different. For example:
Vaccination vs. Immunization
Some health care terms mean the exact same thing. For example:
Flu shot and Influenza vaccine
As your children grow, it’s important to keep them protected from serious diseases. Check with your doctor to ensure your child receives their childhood vaccines – including their flu vaccine - on time.
You and your children can receive these essential immunizations from your provider at your annual preventive care visit.
Health plan members, ages six and older, can also get vaccines at the pharmacy. Find a pharmacy near you.
If you receive preventive care marketing materials from sources other than your Health Plan, PCP or primary clinic, ask your PCP if you are due for the stated service or screening and how it’s covered by your health insurance.
