What is a Preventative Care Visit?

A Preventive Care Visit (often called a “Physical, Annual Exam, Complete Physical Exam (CPE)) is a scheduled office visit that focuses on preventive care based on age and gender, a review of risk factors, including a plan to reduce them, immunizations, and screening tests, which may include a pap smear for women.  A preventive exam is not a follow-up visit or a problem based visit.

Under current medical insurance guidelines, many people DO NOT have a copay or coinsurance for preventive care visits.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE A SECOND SERVICE AT MY PREVENTIVE VISIT?

Many people would like the convenience of addressing all of their health concerns during a single visit. If time allows and at the discretion of your provider, new problems or chronic disease follow-up issues may be addressed at a Preventive Care visit BUT may result in a “Second Service”.

A Second Service may be subject to a copay, coinsurance or patient responsibility.
