Coaching is available to help you reach your personal health goals.

Preventive Benefits / Screenings
Each plan offered in the UA Choice health plan provides a comprehensive preventative benefit, including routine annual physicals or checkups, immunizations, and screenings for many types of cancer and other conditions including type 2 diabetes. A full list of the preventative benefits offered under the plan can be found here.
The preventive benefit does not have a deductible and the plan pays 100% of allowable charges. This means that even if you're on the high deductible or consumer-driven health plans, you can access these services with no out of pocket cost to you.
Premera has provided some helpful information to make sure you get the full value from your plan's preventive benefit. Click here for more information on how to use the benefit.
