Preventive Services

Top 3 Things You Should Know

  1. You’re 100% covered. If you see a Network provider, getting defined preventive services are free to you. WEA Trust follows federal guidelines for defined preventive services, outlined by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force
  2. Labs may not be covered. Receiving other services during the same visit as a preventive services visit may be subject to out-of-pocket cost. See our FAQs below for details.
  3. Using preventive services is a good investment! Preventive services help you stay healthy. Plus, studies show that if a majority of people use preventive services, it saves the country billions of dollars.
