Free Prevention Screenings for All Ages


Patient Advocate Foundation is excited about sharing the good news for patients who are now eligible to receive many preventative services at no cost. Under the Affordable Care Act, which just celebrated its 2 year anniversary as law, insurers are required to cover certain preventive services at no cost to you. There are many screening and preventative services already available, including many cancer early detection programs, diabetes screening, HIV screening, and many more. Beginning as early as August 2012, this list will expand to include additional services for women.

Patients are encouraged to check out the full list of covered preventative services:
