Stay Healthy With Preventive Care
Check-ups and screenings are covered at 100%1
A colonoscopy, mammogram, and other types of routine screenings can help you identify and treat potential health problems before they develop or worsen. Stay healthy with preventive care - checkups, screenings, immunizations, and more – at no cost to you.1
What is considered a preventive visit?
When you are healthy and not experiencing any symptoms or illness, this would be considered a preventive care visit. It is recommended that all people have a yearly visit, or check-up, with their doctor. At this visit, you will most likely have a physical examination and receive certain screenings and tests. This visit is also a good opportunity to ask your doctor any health questions you may have.
What am I responsible to pay?
Tufts Health Plan covers preventive care in full¹, as long as you get care with a doctor or provider who is part of our network. This means you pay no copayment, coinsurance, or deductible for preventive care.
Please note: You may receive non-preventive services during a visit that do require a copayment, coinsurance, or deductible. Examples of these services include pregnancy tests, throat cultures, allergy tests, x-rays, ultrasounds, setting of bones and casts, and cardiac stress tests. Please check your benefit document for additional details.
Preventive screenings, tests, and immunizations
Preventive care is important because certain conditions oftentimes don’t produce any symptoms in their initial stages. But routine screenings can detect potential problems early, when they’re the most treatable.
Screenings you need depend on your age, gender, family history, and any risk factors you may have. Here are some examples of adult preventive screenings and immunizations your doctor might recommend during a preventive visit:
- Blood Pressure
- Breast Cancer
- Cervical Cancer
- Colorectal Cancer
- Skin Cancer
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Human papillomavirus (HPV)
- Measles, mumps, rubella
- Tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis
