Health Care Reform – (Preventive Services) 2015 Open Enrollment starts 11/15/2014

By Dee Merritt

Health Care ReformThe health care reform law passed in 2010 – called the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) – requires many insurance plans to pay for preventive services like shots and screening tests, many important services are covered at no additional costs.  The preventive services defined under 3 headings; Adult, Women, including pregnant women and children.  This is a great value as it is often overlooked,  Being proactive and accessing this valuable service at no cost to you could ultimately extend and improve your quality of life. As our children head off to school soon physicals are normally required so why not start off on the right foot and do yours as well at the same time.  August and September is off season in Southwest Florida so our doctors have more time for us and we have more time available in our schedule as well.  Vision screenings is also included under preventive services for children and highly recommend for children under 6 even if there are no signs of a problem.
