Preventive care for all 

As a Tufts Health Direct member, you can see a primary care provider or obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) for a yearly checkup at no cost to you.

Ask your provider about the following screenings:

  • Pap test — cervical cancer often can be cured when it’s found early. Fortunately, it can usually be found early through regular Pap tests.
  • Mammogram — women ages 40 to 74 should have a regular mammogram. Ask your provider how often you should have a mammogram.


If you’re pregnant, let us know! Pregnant members can get many covered benefits, such as an electric breast pump and support with breastfeeding.

Plus, those who are 28 or more weeks pregnant can get a gift card to help pay for a child’s car seat. Check out our EXTRAS program to learn more.

Make sure your baby gets all recommended immunizations before his or her second birthday.
