One thing California health insurance plan owners know only too well: Premium rates for individual California health insurance plans are – unfortunately – on the rise. That’s why we urge you to use a new benefit that is available to all new health plan owners: Free preventive care that is available on all new health plans that covers you 100% for all in-network nationally recommended preventive care services you receive.
A routine physical exam, health screenings and immunizations are important steps in preventing the onset of illness, staying healthy and – let’s face it: There’s also a financial incentive too – When you keep yourself and your family on a regular routine of health living lifestyle choices like proper nutrition, regular exercise and the use of preventive health care services, you are helping to prevent the possibility of more costly medical issues later down the road. Preventive care and early detection keeps you and your family on the path to good health, improves the quality of life, and increases the positive effectiveness of treatment regimens. In short, it’s a winner all the way around!
If you’re a regular reader of our Vitality California health insurance blog, you know one thing for sure: We advocate strongly for the use of your free preventive care services that are part of your plan benefits along with seeking and securing consumer savings wherever possible. We talk regularly here about the great benefits offered consumers by the always free, always caring concerned one-on-one client consultations we provide consumers; our always free California health insurance plan quotes; and our dedication to providing great California health insurance consumer buying guides here at the Vitality website and accompanying blog.
As a California health insurance consumer, you might be doing some regular reading of media reports about Health Reform – there have been many such reports with some negative and some positive reporting on this vital national issue. To our way of thinking, one of the single best features of the PPACA legislation passed in March of last year was the mandate for free preventive care services to those plan members who secured these services through in-network providers. There’s no downside to the ability of plan members to secure the type of important preventive care services that will keep you and your family on the road to good health and away from the possibility of later costly medical procedures that can impact everyone’s premium rates moving forward. Now there’s just one problem here – can you spot it? We have to get you to use these important preventive care services! So, please, if you’re reading this blog and have a health plan that features these free preventive care services – or are about to apply online for a new California health insurance plan or about to download one of the paper applications for California health insurance plans found here at our website: If you have or are about to have these preventive care services as part of your plan’s benefits, please make use of them! They are one of your best weapons in the fight against ill health and serious and costly medical issues and procedures later in life.
