No salesmen will call!

The federal government has released new rules describing which preventative care services will be free to consumers under the new health insurance requirements.  These requirements will be applied to all new insurance plans issued on or after September 23, 2010.

The list includes items like cancer screenings, immunizations, and blood pressure testing.

What does this mean to you?

It means that if you have a new health insurance plan (i.e. a non-grandfathered plan) or insurance policy beginning on or after September 23, 2010, the following preventive services must be covered at 100% (i.e. they must be free) when purchased within your network:

Covered Preventive Services for Adults

Covered Preventive Services for Women, Including Pregnant Women
