“Annual Physicals”#1 There’s no such thing as Free Lunch
Preventative service exams, aka “Annual Physicals”, are a staple of primary care medicine. With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), aka “Obamacare”, preventative service exams have gained a lot of attention. Under the ACA, most insurance policies cover ONE annual preventative service office visit no cost to the insured. Everything used to be included in a co-pay and you were on your way after seeing the provider.
