Understanding Preventive Care

Preventive care is designed to help you stay healthy and identify potential health risks for early diagnosis and treatment.

Staying healthy is at the front of everyone’s minds right now, as we’re all watching for potential symptoms of coronavirus. Just like paying attention to physical symptoms of an illness, it’s also a good idea to take steps to identify and prevent long-term sickness before it starts. It’s called preventive care.

Earlier this year, we shared the difference between preventive care and diagnostic care. Understanding these types of care makes a difference in understanding your benefit coverage and helps you manage your health and your healthcare costs.
