Annual Wellness Visits Are Key to Well-Being
Your primary care provider is an important part of your well-being toolbox. Keeping up with regular exams helps your provider catch small changes before they become bigger issues.
Your provider can also refer you to more specialized care when it’s needed. Plus, your Avera Health Plans policy covers annual exams 100%.
But there’s more you can do on your own, and we’re here to help keep you stay focused and inspired-
- Set goals for emotional, physical and financial wellness
- Stay active and eat a balanced diet
- Seek help when you need it – our member health advocates can connect you to community resources
We see preventive, no-cost services as one of the keys to stopping what we call the 'smoldering ember' effect in a person's health. Preventive screenings, checkups and immunizations can tamp out those potential health issues before they grow unchecked and lead to substantial problems.
