Take Advantage of Preventive Care Coverage

Take Advantage of Preventive Care Coverage
Preventive care is essential to good health. Regular check-ups, vaccinations and diagnostic screenings help protect you from disease or enable you to catch problems earlier, when they are most treatable. In addition, regular preventive care helps you develop a relationship with a personal care provider (PCP). Should you need treatment for injury or illness, you’ll be able to see someone you know – someone who knows you and your health history.

Dassault Systèmes health plans pay 100% of the cost for in-network preventive care, with no deductible. Preventive care services include (but are not limited to):

  • Routine physical exams and diagnostic tests; for example, CBC (complete blood count), cholesterol blood test, and urinalysis;
  • Well-child services and routine pediatric care and immunizations for children, excluding travel immunizations; and
  • Routine well-woman exams
  • Other age-appropriate diagnostic screenings, such as mammography beginning at age 35 and colonoscopy beginning at age 50.

In addition to well-woman exams, the following women's preventive services are covered by network providers at 100% with no deductible to meet:

  • Well-woman office visit to obtain recommended preventive services that are age- and developmentally appropriate, including preconception and prenatal care;
  • Certain Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved contraceptive devices, including diaphragms and implantable devices, sterilization procedures, and patient education and counseling for women with reproductive capacity;
  • Comprehensive lactation support and counseling by a trained provider during pregnancy and/or in the postpartum period (including costs for renting breast pumps and nursing-related supplies);
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA testing as part of cervical cancer screenings for women (at least every three years);
    Interpersonal and domestic violence screening and counseling;
  • Counseling on sexually transmitted infections for all
    sexually active women; and Screening for gestational diabetes.

What’s Not Considered Preventive Care
Keep in mind that any treatment or office visits related to a health problem are not considered preventive care. For example, if you make a preventive care appointment with your PCP, but you also are seeking treatment for a sinus infection, you will be charged for an office visit, which is subject to your plan’s deductible and coinsurance or a copayment.

Preventive care services are one of the best ways to keep you and your family healthy. These services can help you stay healthy and avoid or delay health problems. So be sure to see your doctor regularly and get your preventive screenings.
