Schedule your preventive health visit today
Preventive health visits are vital for your well-being. They help you maintain your health and identify potential problems. And—as a PacificSource member—they’re free.
What to expect: Preventive health visits are routine physicals. Your doctor checks your height, weight, heart rate, and blood pressure. They may also suggest certain blood tests based on your age, health history, and family health history, including checking your cholesterol and glucose levels.
Other preventive care: Preventive health visits aren’t just limited to routine physicals. Dental and vision exams are also important annual health visits.
Who should have a preventive health visit? Everyone. Routine visits can help catch problems early, which can make a difference in treatments and outcomes.
How often? It all depends on your age, sex, health status, risk factors, and other circumstances. Discuss with your doctor what screenings you should have.
Screening tests you need depend on your body parts. They may include:
- Breast Cancer
- Colorectal / colonoscopy
- Pelvic / Pap smear
LGBTQ+ Health: Screenings for certain cancers may depend on whether you take hormones.
As a PacificSource member, your preventive care services—cancer screenings, immunizations, and more—are free when performed by an in-network provider. For more info, visit PacificSource.com and search for “No-cost Preventive Care.” Be proactive by scheduling your preventive health visits today.
