What is Preventive Care?

Most health plans must cover a set of preventive services — like shots and screening tests — at no cost to you.   
These services are free only when delivered by a doctor or other provider in your plan’s network.

Preventive services are specific to adults, women, and children

There are 3 sets of free preventive services. Select the links below to see a list of covered services for each group:

For all adults

For women

For children
