Visiting the doctor is not just for when you are ill. Your body requires checkups as your car requires oil changes. If you wait too long your engine will prematurely break down. The idea is to prevent things from occurring or catch them before they turn out to be damaging. Preventive care improves health outcomes overall.

Join Dr. Jacquelin Castillo on Friday, Sept. 20, from 6-7 p.m. in the Connally Memorial Medical Center Administrative Conference Room for a free dinner and health discussion. Reservations can be made by calling 830-393-1311.

Health care is changing. No matter what side of the political aisle you are on, you should take advantage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA now requires insurances to provide coverage for approved preventive services and immunizations without a copayment, co-insurance, or meeting your deductible as long as they are delivered by a network provider. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has determined most of the covered services based on research showing the benefits of the recommendation outweigh the risk. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has determined the covered immunizations. There are additional services beyond the task force’s recommendations that are listed under the ACA as well. For a full list of covered services you can ask your insurance provider or visit www.hhs.gov.

Everyone is allowed an annual wellness visit with his or her insurance by the Affordable Care Act. This is the time to address any of the preventive services and immunizations, which are due, based on age and risk factors. The exam consists of a head-to-toe physical, making sure your general health is okay. Women are allowed an additional visit for a well-woman exam. This is where the breast exam and pelvic exam take place. The pap smear test will also take place if due. These visits will be free as long as no additional health concerns are addressed outside of the covered services. Based on your medical history you might require more frequent visits throughout the year to manage chronic medical conditions. The best way to determine your out-of-pocket costs is to call your insurance company.

As a patient it is time to be proactive in your own health care. Determine what services will be covered and ask for them. Some of the insurance companies are even rewarding their members to stay healthy by giving them significant discounts off their premiums or awarding prizes. It is time to take charge of your own health care and lead the healthiest life possible.
