Preventive Health Care
Preventive health care is an important benefit of many of our benefit plans because it is the foundation of our early detection and treatment philosophy. Below you will find preventive health care guidelines as well as our standard preventive health care benefits schedule.
Preventive Health Guidelines
Capital BlueCross' Preventive Health Care Guidelines give members and physicians an idea of what the medical community suggests are the best scientific recommendations for obtaining optimum preventive health care. These guidelines were adapted from the U.S. Preventive Service Task Force, National Institutes of Health, the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices, the Centers for Disease Control, and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Changes to the childhood and adult immunization schedule may have occurred. For the latest immunization recommendations, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
