As we move into the fourth quarter with renewals and cold season, there tends to be an uptick in questions regarding recommended preventative health screenings. The below website from the independent U.S. Preventive Services Task Force allows people to search for recommended screenings based on age, gender, and tobacco use. Screenings with A and B grades are recommended and are often covered as preventive care. Screenings with C and I (insufficient information) are neither recommended nor discouraged. Screenings with a D grade are discouraged on the grounds that they may cause harm.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions regarding the Affordable Care Act.
