There are many health resources available to help you on your journey to become Simply Well. Preventive screenings, primary care and obtaining an annual physical are an important part of this journey.
Preventive Screenings & Health Services
Did you know that most health insurance plans cover annual physicals, scheduled immunizations and recommended preventive health screenings? As a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), these services are often covered at no cost to you. Here are the ACA guidelines for covered preventive services:
Check with your health plan to verify coverage. Members of the Crouse Hospital Employee Health Plan may contact Excellus to verify coverage at 855/737-0760. If you do not have insurance coverage, please contact Human Resources to discuss options that may be available through Crouse Hospital or the Health Insurance Marketplace.
Why Primary Care?
Have you ever wondered why it is so important to have a Primary Care Physician (PCP)? Primary care clinicians ensure that patients get the right care, in the right setting, by the most appropriate practitioner in a manner that considers the patient’s desires and values.
Think about it like this, you, the patient, are the quarterback of your health and quality of life. You have the freedom to make decisions that will impact your health and happiness. Your primary care doctor is the head coach, who creates and tailors the game plan and equips you with the right tools to help you drive your care plan in the right direction. And over time, you and your doctor form a relationship – you get to know each other. Together, you can catch small health problems before they become serious.
