Preventive Health

  • Log in for specific information about your plan's suggested preventive routine exams, vaccinations, and screenings. See your benefits booklet for details about what is covered.

    Checkups are important

    Getting an annual checkup is enormously important for better health for everyone, not just babies and kids.

    Routine exams can help spot health issues *before* they begin. They can also identify problems early, before they become more serious and harder to treat. That's why Premera offers routine preventive medical exams at no cost, as part of your plan benefits. Checkups are also a great time to ensure you're up to date on vaccinations and boosters.
