Many health plans are required to cover certain preventive care services at no cost to you.

You may be eligible for free preventive screenings, like blood pressure and cholesterol tests, mammograms, colonoscopies, and more. This includes coverage for vaccines and new preventive services for women.

Does this apply to my plan?

It depends. These rights don’t apply to health plans created or bought before March 23, 2010, which are known as grandfathered plans. Check your plan’s materials or ask your employer or benefits administrator to find out if your health plan is grandfathered.
