How To Get The Most Out Of Your Health Insurance Plan

Nevada Insurance Enrollment Explains How To Take Advantage of Your Free Preventative Services

LAS VEGAS - nvtip -- Today's Health Insurance offer benefits above and beyond just doctors and hospitals such as free preventative services, fitness and so much more.

Free Preventative Services:
From the Health and Human Services website, here are some examples of what is covered, without co-pays, co-insurance, or deductibles.

Make sure the doctor's office bills you correctly for "Preventative" services. If you see the doctor for preventative services only, you should not see a medical bill. We suggest that if you go to see the doctor for preventative services, do not talk about or have any other services performed.
