Get free preventive services

  • Most health plans must cover a set of preventive services, including shots, check-ups, and screening tests, at no cost to you.
  • Taking advantage of these services can prevent illnesses, disease, and other health problems, and detect illness at an early stage when treatment is likely to work best.

Get recommended health screenings

  • Marketplace plans cover chronic disease management and rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices.
  • Schedule any preventive appointments you need in advance. This way, you’ll have them on the calendar, and they won’t slip your mind.
