Did you know Health Choice covers well-woman preventative services?
Preventative services are meant to identify certain risk factors related to disease, behavioral health and the promotion of a healthy life.
A well-woman preventative visit includes a well exam including:
- Physical Exam
- Breast Exam
- Pelvic Exam
- Review of Immunizations, Screenings and Tests.
Your provider will be screening and counseling you on ways to improve your health and reduce your risk.
Some examples of screenings are:
- Tobacco/substance use, abuse and/or dependency
- Proper nutrition
- Depression screening
- Sexually transmitted infections
- Family planning counseling
- Physical Activity
It is very important that you get an annual well-woman preventative exam so that you identify any concerns early and get the care you need. There is no copayment or other charges for a well-woman exam. BCBSAZ Health Choice provides transportation to well-woman appointments and can assist you in scheduling an appointment if needed.
