A key provision of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was the requirement that private insurance plans cover recommended preventive services without any patient cost-sharing.
Research has shown that evidence-based preventive services can save lives and improve health by identifying illnesses earlier, managing them more effectively, and treating them before they develop into more complicated, debilitating conditions, and that some services are also cost-effective. However, costs do prevent some individuals from obtaining preventive services . The coverage requirement aims to remove cost barriers.
The APEX Advantage plan offers 100% coverage for 80 preventive and wellness services for Adults, Women and Children.
