What's in an annual physical?
Many insurances include the “annual preventive physical” as part of your included benefits with no cost-sharing. To understand exactly what this means, have a look at the group that you fall into:
- Health screenings for men ages 18 to 39
- Health screenings for men ages 40 to 64
- Health screenings for women age 65 and older
- Health screenings for women ages 18 to 39
- Health screenings for women ages 40 to 64
- Visits that are outside the preventive visit, either to follow up on a chronic condition or to treat a new problem, are billled as “office visits” and these are sometimes handled differently by your insurance. If you have a question about how a visit will be treated and what your share of costs might be, consult with your insurance carrier. The office is unable to keep track of individual plan details for each patient, but you should be able to obtain a Summary of Benefits (required by law) from your insurance company.
