Information About Preventive ServicesIt 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 certain screenings and tests. The visit is also a good opportunity to ask your doctor any health questions you have. When you are healthy and not experiencing any symptoms or illness, this would be considered a preventive care visit.
What am I responsible to pay?
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.
Tufts Health Plan covers preventive care in full, as long as you get care with a doctor or provider who is part of our network. This means that you pay no copayment, coinsurance, or deductible for preventive care.
These are some examples of preventive screenings and immunizations that your doctor might recommend during a preventive visit:
