What is included in my annual physical?
Generally, insurance companies cover a predetermined list of components that are considered part of your physical. For example, during your annual physical, you can expect that your provider will do the following:
- Gather or update your comprehensive medical history Outline plans for the reduction of risk factors Provide interventions or counseling to improve overall health Order appropriate laboratory/diagnostic procedures based on your personal medical conditions Order and/or administer appropriate immunizations Manage minor health concerns Obtaining a refill for a prescription for chronic medications (allergy or birth control, for example) Asking your provider to pay special attention to a skin lesion during your routine physical.
The following are examples of specific health concerns that may not be covered as part of your physical:
- A sinus infection Sore throat (and testing for strep) New cough New or changed headache pattern Abdominal pain Pelvic pain Depression or anxiety Joint pain, both specific and general General fatigue Sleeping problems Irregular menstrual periods Significant changes in status of a chronic health problem
