Many young adults only go to the doctor when they're sick. And, they may carry insurance in case of an emergency.
But, under the ACA, young adults now have access to free preventive benefits, with no co-pay. An annual check-up not only builds a relationship with your doctor, but may catch a disease early when it's most treatable.
The bottom line is, these services can improve your quality of health and help you live longer. In fact, it could save your life.
Keeping on top of your health and taking advantage of free screenings also saves on healthcare costs down the road.
