Stay healthy this flu season with free preventive health services from the Marketplace
Published on October 25, 2015
Flu season is here, and getting a flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your family from this potentially serious disease. If you’re covered by a health plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace®, you and your family can get free flu shots from a doctor or other provider in your plan’s network.
Flu shots aren’t the only preventive health service covered by Marketplace plans. All health plans sold through the Marketplace cover a set of preventive health care services at no cost to you when delivered by a network provider – including some screenings, check-ups, patient counseling, and wellness services.
So be sure to take advantage of the free preventive services offered by the Marketplace. Not covered yet? You can enroll in a 2016 plan starting November 1.
