All children and adults need preventive care. With preventive care like screenings, immunizations, checkups and patient counseling, many diseases, illnesses, and health problems can be prevented or detected at an early stage when treatment is likely to work best.

Most preventive services are covered by your health insurance, with no copay or deductible. If you are uncertain if a service is covered and you have Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, you can check your Anthem booklet, call the customer number on your ID card, or call the Human Resources Department to see if it is paid for by the plan.
