It is important to get regular cancer screenings because some types of cancers don’t have obvious symptoms in the early stages. Screening exams can help doctors find and treat some types of cancer early.

Additional screenings or services will be considered diagnostic services and will be covered after you pay the applicable copay or deductible and coinsurance. At the time of your preventive care visit, if other services are performed that are not preventive services, as determined by the claims administrator, they will not be paid at 100% even if they are submitted as part of a claim for preventive care.
