Did you know? Major Medical Plans purchased after 2014 include the following without copays and co-insurance when used within network to avoid cost sharing:

Defining Preventive Care:
Preventive care takes a look at who you are as “healthy you”. A homeostatic or baseline of how you present when you are healthy and symptom free. Preventive care’s aim is to provide routine screenings to help detect the early onset of health issues. The idea is to to identify health issues early and resolve them before they become larger, more serious health concerns.
Preventive care includes such things as: immunizations, shots, screenings, tests and 1 FREE annual wellness visit.
The Affordable Care Act or “Obamacare” requires most health plans to cover certain services at no out-of-pocket costs.
