Preventive Care

At Apex MD , we believe that comprehensive care is essential in maintaining good health. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law on March 23, 2010. This law requires insurance companies to cover all applicants with new standards for Preventative Health Care including a limited wellness visit, but does not include comprehensive physical or evaluation of acute or chronic illnesses. There are 15 preventative services that are recommended for adults. Some of those items include immunizations, screening for depression, blood pressure screening, colorectal cancer screening for adults over 50 and cholesterol screening.

When was Your Last Preventive Care Visit?

Many serious health problems don’t have symptoms; they are only identified during a doctor’s exam. Don’t wait until something goes wrong.

Your physician can learn a lot about your health today and what it might look like in the future just by talking with you about your lifestyle and performing some basic tests, and that's what a preventive care is all about. The best part of a preventive care visit isn't just the prevention of health problems or the achievement of more complete wellness but the relationship you build with your doctor.
