Will my insurance cover the cost?
The Affordable Care Act, also known as the "Obamacare",  requires health plans to cover an Annual Wellness Examination (or Preventive Care) at no additional cost to you -- copayment or coinsurance and deductibles are waived.*  In addition to a complete physical examination, it includes review of your medical history, medication list, and family history.  Most plans also cover routine lab work, cancer screening (if appropriate), immunization (if appropriate), and evaluation of lifestyle/disease risk factors (diet, exercise, smoking, alcohol, drugs).

Are Labs and Screening Tests covered?
Your insurance plan is required to provide you with the details of your benefits, list of routine labs and preventive screening they will cover as part of your Annual Wellness Examination.  Coverage may vary depending on your insurance company.   Call the toll free number on the back of your insurance card to verify your benefits.

How do I get started?
After you have verified your benefits, give us a call and we will take care of the rest.  If you need assistance in contacting your insurance company, please let us know, and we will be glad to assist.
