What is Preventative Care, Why is it Important, and What You Can Do

Preventative health care involves medical services provided to you by your health care providers. These services can include annual checkups, vaccinations, dental appointments, and more. Tests, procedures, and medications can be performed routinely to ensure your body stays in top shape. Most healthcare insurances cover and encourage using preventative care. Preventative care helps you proactively take care of your health rather than reactively. Many people don’t see the need to go to the doctor when there is nothing wrong, which is why education on preventative care is essential.

What is preventative care?

Preventative care is the care given to prevent you from becoming ill or developing health problems. Even though you may not have a current health problem, it is vital to keep up on care to help identify risks and prevent diseases or illnesses. As we age, we become more susceptible to disease and conditions. 60% of adult Americans have at least one chronic condition, and 42% of adult Americans have two or more.1  Preventative care is used to catch conditions early and prevent them from happening.

Why is preventive care important?

Keeping up on your preventative care can help you stay healthy and lower your healthcare costs. Preventive care includes health screenings of your risks for certain conditions and how to manage those risks. Risks for diseases can consist of your gender, ages, family history, and genetic makeup that can’t be changed.

During your preventative care appointments, your doctor may check for:2

  • High blood sugar to rule out prediabetes
  • High cholesterol to rule out heart disease
  • High blood pressure to rule out the risk of stroke
  • Cancer risks
  • Maintaining proper weight and fitness levels
  • Smoking and alcohol cessation

Many more preventative care checks can be performed to ensure your overall health is taken care of. It is hard to control risk factors out of your control for diseases. Utilizing your preventative health care benefits can help monitor and treat diseases early. Catching potential conditions early can help increase your life span, decrease overall medical expenses, prevent chronic conditions, and catch conditions early.

Tips on how to keep up on your preventative care

Taking control of your health is important, and utilizing your preventative care benefits can help. Most insurances cover the costs of preventive care, so it is typically at no cost to you. 2  

Here are some tips on what to do:

  • Call your doctor for your annual checkup
  • Tell your doctor your family history, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and more.
  • Ask your doctor about your age group and preventative screenings you qualify for
  • Stay up to date on your vaccinations
  • Keep your doctor up to date on your mental health
  • Check with your insurance provider to see what preventative screenings they cover the cost on
