Providing free preventative healthcare services is now required for insurers under the new healthcare law. These services are absolutely free to you once you enroll in any Obamacare plan, meaning no deductible, co-pay, or co-insurance is needed! In some cases you may have to pay up front and then be reimbursed by your insurer, but this is most likely only the case if you visit a chain pharmacy instead of your doctor’s office.
Here are some of our favorite freebies available to you:
Free Annual Flu Shot
Free Birth Control
