Did you know that under the Affordable Care Act, your health insurance plan covers a slew of preventative measures?

And when we say cover, we mean completely free (VERY IMPORTANT: These services are only free if you use a doctor or provider in your network). According to HealthCare.gov, “All Marketplace health plans and many other plans must cover the following list of preventive services for children without charging you a copayment or coinsurance. This is true even if you haven’t met your yearly deductible.”

Check out the list of covered measures below and make sure you take advantage of these sweet benefits. Start by talking with your in-network general practitioner and make an appointment today!

-Depression screening
-HIV screening
-Alcohol misuse screening and counseling & tobacco use screening
-Abdominal aortic aneurysm screening
