Insurance Coverage for Annual Physical Wellness
Most insurance plans cover annual wellness visits to primary care practices. Ask your physician about your coverage and make an appointment for your next physical the next time you visit us.
Beginning in 2015, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will require every health plan to cover all costs related to preventive services. Preventive services are tests and procedures to maintain health and prevent disease.
Insurance plans that do not currently cover costs for all preventive services have until December 31, 2014 to meet the ACA requirements. Coverage for preventive services will vary by state, so you should carefully review the services covered by your current plan, or a new one you select through a Health Insurance Marketplace.
