What’s the difference between preventive and diagnostic care?

Preventive Care

Preventive care includes routine well exams, screenings, and immunizations intended to prevent or avoid illness or other health problems.

Preventive care is usually covered by most health plans with $0 out-of-pocket when you see a network provider.

Diagnostic Care

Diagnostic care includes care or treatment when you have symptoms or risk factors and your doctor wants to diagnose them.

Diagnostic care could have additional costs, depending on your plan coverage. Check your plan documents for details.
