How To Guide For: Understanding Preventive Care And Diagnostic Care

Preventive care is the care you receive to prevent illnesses or diseases. It also includes counseling to prevent health problems. Providing these services at no cost is based on the idea that getting preventive care, such as screenings and immunizations, can help you and your family stay healthy. Diagnostic care is when someone is having symptoms or health problems and tests and/or procedures are ordered to assist in determining the cause of the symptoms or health problems. Diagnostic tests are considered under the Medical benefit category. They are never considered Preventive Care. This matters because many preventive services are covered at 100% meaning no out-of-pocket cost to you. But if the service is considered diagnostic your usual copayment, coinsurance and deductibles apply.
