Our greatest wealth is our health.

One of the best things you can do for yourself, your family, your pets, and your grandkids is to live a healthy lifestyle. You can also inspire your coworkers to improve their own lives, leading to a healthier workforce and a healthier IU.

Preventive Care

Preventive care includes routine well exams, screenings, and immunizations intended to prevent or avoid illness or other health problems. People who see their doctor regularly and have routine screenings are more likely to receive an early diagnosis if they develop a medical condition, and this contributes to better outcomes and a longer lifespan. Routine screenings also allow physicians to compare test results over time, increasing the chances that a potential problem can be prevented by interventions like medications or lifestyle changes. 

All IU medical plans cover in-network preventive care at 100%, meaning you can receive these and many other services through your primary care provider with no out-of-pocket costs:

  • Wellness exams and routine immunizations
  • Labs for cholesterol, TB, fasting blood sugar and A1C, and STIs
  • Screening tests such as mammograms, bone density testing, PSA, colonoscopies, and cancer screenings
  • Women’s health services including oral contraceptives, IUDs, hormone implants, injections, pap smears, and sterilization

Some preventive services have age or quantity limits, so be sure to check with your primary care provider or insurance provider, or find more information for your medical plan here.
