If you’re like many Wisconsinites, you might have some questions about your health care coverage. If you are like others, you might even feel completely confused. And even if you aren’t completely confused, it likely wouldn’t be going out on a limb to say that many don’t know absolutely everything about their plan. People tend to focus on the biggest financial impactors – premium, deductible, and co-pay. While these items are of key importance, today we are going to discuss a less-talked-about feature of some health care plans and healthcare in general – preventative care.
Since the signing of the Affordable Care Act, almost all healthcare plans are required to cover certain preventative care measures. For example, almost every plan includes a yearly well check. Oftentimes, this well check includes routine lab work. Yearly checkups are a great way to stay ahead of any potential problems and just to verify that you are healthy in general.
If you meet certain demographic criteria, you may be covered or partially covered for other routine screenings -colonoscopies, mammograms, and other specific yet preventative screenings.
Finally, though not necessarily related to a health care plan, per se, some employers offer other health-related benefits to employees. Whether it’s incentives for meeting certain healthy lifestyle objectives, financial assistance with a gym membership, or a health savings plan, it’s good to know your options and take advantage.
