Free Preventive Care Services

Keeping your family and yourself healthy includes preventive care. Often, insurance plans cover preventive services without charging a co-pay or co-insurance — even if you haven't met your yearly deductible.

In fact, all plans offered through the new health insurance Marketplace (established by the Affordable Care Act, sometimes
called "Obamacare") are required to cover certain preventive services at no cost to patients.

Click the links below if you obtained coverage through healthcare.gov or a state insurance Marketplace:

If you have health insurance through another source, such as an employer or broker, the requirement for 100% coverage
may not yet apply. However, most traditional plans still cover preventive services, and some may include full coverage.

To confirm your level of coverage for preventive care and to make sure your insurance is on our list of accepted plans, check with your insurance provider or employer. Or our practice staff may be able help you. Call us today to schedule your preventive care.

Additional Information

FMC recently made the switch to EMR (electronic medical records) in order to better serve our patients. First-time patients will receive a temporary pin, which can be changed upon the first login, to allow them access to a summary of their visit. Most summaries are uploaded and able to be viewed within 24 hours. We also ask that first- time patients arrive 30 minutes prior to their appointment to allow time for new patient paperwork to be filled out. 

At FMC,  we understand that your time -- and our provider’s time -- is valuable, so we ask that if you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment, please call and let us know at least 24 hours in advance. We will reschedule your appointment. We charge a no-show fee of $25 for appointments that are not cancelled prior to this timeframe.
