What does preventive care include?

With preventive care, you and your loved ones will receive ongoing preventive medicine. This means you’ll have regular checkups to check for common health issues. You’ll also get regular screenings for other health issues such as cancer, and you’ll get regular immunizations too. Preventive care includes all of those services with annual visits that are generally covered by insurance. Over time, you’ll become accustomed to the physician and he or she will quickly become one of the most important members of your healthcare team!

It’s important to have your annual preventive care visit because every person is at risk for common health issues, and particular people might be at risk for other, more serious health issues.

What is a preventive care visit?

This type of visit with a physician is a simple, routine checkup. The point of a preventive care visit is to make sure you’re healthy and to check for any signs of health issues that could eventually become bigger health issues. For example, the doctor will check your weight, and if you’re overweight, the doctor might recommend testing for diabetes.

Additionally, during a preventive care visit, you’ll have the opportunity to bring up any health concerns or questions with the physician. You can also bring up any health matters relating to your family. The more open and transparent you are with the physician, the better able he or she will be to help you.

What is included in a preventive health checkup?

These checkups are quick and easy. Generally, the physician will perform some kind of examination of the patient. For many patients, this could be a complete physical examination. Also, the physician will ask you about your lifestyle habits, vaccination status, and other matters related to your health and wellbeing. He or she will also check your blood pressure. If you are at risk for any health issues such as age-related or genetic diseases, then the physician will recommend that you get screened for them.

Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) and most insurance plans cover the costs of annual preventive care visits. At Chuckanut Family Medicine, we work with most major insurance providers and plans, so you can expect your visits with us will be covered. We also offer direct primary care for patients without insurance.
