Preventive care services — like an annual physical examination* — are intended to keep you healthy and detect health issues before they become serious problems.
Under the Affordable Care Act, when you visit a network provider, your health insurance covers preventive care services at 100 percent. See a full list of the preventive care services covered under the Affordable Care Act on the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services website.
Non-preventive care services are intended to treat or diagnose acute, existing or ongoing health concerns. Your health insurance provider will require a co-payment for these office visits, as well as additional payment to cover the full cost of services.
Even if you scheduled a preventive care visit, non-preventive services may occur depending on concerns expressed or findings revealed during your visit.
If you receive both types of care (preventive and non-preventive) at your visit, the preventive services will be covered by your insurer. Your insurer will require you to pay a share of the full costs for the non-preventive services. Check your health insurance coverage to learn more about co-payment, co-insurance, deductibles and network coverage.
*A physical examination performed for the completion of a form — for example to satisfy employment, athletic, academic or immigration requirements, etc. — is not considered to be a preventative care service.
After billing your health insurance and applying your Student Services Fee to the cost of your visit, you can expect most Boynton services at no additional out-of-pocket cost — with some exceptions:
Office of Human Resources: learn more about employee benefits and insurance options.
Office of Student Health Benefits: offers affordable health insurance and dental insurance plans to students.
