Many SelectHealth® plans cover preventive care at 100 percent*—that means no copay, coinsurance, or deductible. For services to be covered as preventive, your doctor must bill claims with preventive codes. If a preventive service identifies a condition that needs further testing or treatment, your regular copays, coinsurance, or deductibles may apply. Unless otherwise indicated, these services are generally covered every 12 months. This information is subject to change at any time and additional limitations may apply. To verify if your service or supply is considered preventive, call Member Services at 800-538-5038.
