Free Preventive Screenings, Immunizations & Health Services

Preventive care helps keep you healthy and out of the hospital. We want to help you and your primary care provider prevent and manage health problems before you feel sick or are disabled. After all, members are our lifeblood. So the healthier our members are, the healthier the CO-OP is!

Under the Affordable Care Act, health insurance plans must cover certain preventive services without charging you a co-payment or coinsurance. This is true even if you haven’t met your yearly deductible. This applies only when you receive these services by an in- network provider. What types of preventive care and services are available?

Why we’re big on preventive care

Our goal is to help prevent or detect issues early, before you have complications that could land you in the hospital and have a bigger impact your wallet. That’s why we don’t just want you to access free preventive health services. Routine checkups and screenings with your primary care provider are important. They can help you find potential health concerns early. And that can make a big difference in being able to effectively manage health conditions.
