Preventive Care Tools
Getting regular checkups and exams can help you stay well and catch problems early. It may even save your life. Anthem health plans and policies cover 100% of the services listed on this preventive care flyer. When you get these services from doctors in your plan’s network, you don’t have to pay anything out of your own pocket. You may have to pay part of the costs if you use a doctor outside the network.
Use the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services MyHealthfinder tool to learn what screening tests and vaccines you need to stay healthy.
