What are health screenings?
Health screenings are annual check-ups or age-appropriate tests that can aid in patient wellness, while helping doctors to detect specific diseases or conditions. These screenings can help in identifying risk factors or conditions before major symptoms appear, enabling doctors to provide a personalized prevention or mitigation plan.
According to the National Health Council, nearly a third of the 133 million Americans with a chronic disease don’t even know they have the disease.1 It’s shocking, but almost 100,000 lives could be saved each year just by increasing the use of common preventive care services, like patient-appropriate health screenings.2
What is a Health Screening Benefit?
