Health insurance plans are required by law to offer certain preventive care services free of charge. Essentially, the cost of these services are included in your regular monthly insurance premiums -- there is no co-pay or other out-of-pocket charge. This is true whether or not you’ve met your plan’s annual deductible.

Some examples of preventive care include mammograms, diabetes screening, vaccinations, autism screening, HIV testing, and colonoscopies. Many other preventive services are also covered.

This rule applies to most plans sold directly by insurance companies and all plans sold through the online health care marketplaces (exchanges).
