Preventative Well-Woman Care
Staying well is more important than ever in the shifting landscape of healthcare. Take advantage of the preventive examinations and services covered by your insurance plan! Preventive care helps you find health problems early before they can develop into more serious conditions. Preventive care is provided by most plans without cost to you.
Preventive services include a general physical examination as well as breast and pelvic examinations, and Pap smear when needed. These wellness visits also include screening for high blood pressure; high cholesterol; diabetes; and cancer (breast, cervical, colon). These conditions often develop without any warning signs. Finding them early can help you live a longer and healthier life. Wellness visits also include screening for depression, which is another fairly common condition with serious consequences.
Do yourself a favor and have an annual women’s wellness visit. It could save your life.
