Please see the attached link for the Preventive Schedule
This Schedule is a reference tool for planning your family’s preventive care, and lists items/services required under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA), as amended. It is reviewed and updated periodically based on the advice of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, the laws and regulations of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and updates to clinical guidelines established by national medical organizations. Accordingly, the content of this Schedule is subject to change. Your specific needs for preventive services may vary according to your personal risk factors. Your doctor is always your best resource for determining if you’re at increased risk for a condition. Some services may require prior authorization. If you have questions about this Schedule, prior authorizations, or your benefit coverage, please call the Member Service number on the back of your ID card.
