Health System Reform Affects Prevention

One of the provisions of health system reform that is already having an impact on physician practices is the provision on preventive health care services. Since Sept. 23, new individual and group health plans must cover preventive health services such as immunizations, cancer screenings, well-child services, and well-woman services without a coinsurance, copay, or deductible.

In its continuing effort to help physicians understand the Affordable Care Act, TMA has put together a series of white papers on the law's provisions. You can find out what you need to know about the preventive health provisions by reading Preventive Health Coverage Mandates Under Health System Reform [PDF].

You can find this and all other white papers in TMA's Health System Reform Action Center on the TMA website.
