Preventative care helps detect or prevent serious diseases and medical problems before they can become major. At Essentia Health, we provide care for every age and every need.
Our Wellness Visit options include:
During your visit, the team will meet with you on your specific area needs and can provide routine care including health screenings, vaccinations, and preventative care visits. They can also diagnose and treat a wide range of injuries and illnesses. If you require specialty care, your primary care provider will make referrals and coordinate all your health care needs.
Over time, your provider will get to know you and your health history. Building a long-term relationship with your care team can improve your ability to maintain your health and quality of life.
Preventative care is often covered 100% by your health plan. On the other hand, for most non-preventive care you’ll pay a share of the costs. It depends on your plan’s co-pay, deductible and co-insurance.
Commercial health insurance plans such as Medica, Blue Cross Blue Shield or Medicare Advantage plans may offer benefits each year for preventive care. Traditional Medicare does not have this benefit.
Check with your health insurance company to see how your plan covers preventive and non-preventive care. You can find the phone number or website on the back of your health insurance card.
