Did you know Health Choice covers well-woman preventative services?

Preventative services are meant to identify certain risk factors related to disease, behavioral health and the promotion of a healthy life.

A well-woman preventative visit includes a well exam including:

  • Physical Exam
  • Breast Exam
  • Pelvic Exam
  • Review of Immunizations, Screenings and Tests.

Your provider will be screening and counseling you on ways to improve your health and reduce your risk.

Some examples of screenings are:

  • Tobacco/substance use, abuse and/or dependency
  • Proper nutrition
  • Depression screening
  • Sexually transmitted infections
  • Family planning counseling
  • Physical Activity

It is very important that you get an annual well-woman preventative exam so that you identify any concerns early and get the care you need. There is no copayment or other charges for a well-woman exam. BCBSAZ Health Choice provides transportation to well-woman appointments and can assist you in scheduling an appointment if needed. Please call Member Services for assistance.
