Obesity Screening Test and Counseling

What It Does: Evaluates your body mass index (BMI) by weighing you to see if your weight is unhealthy based on your height. If you have a BMI of 30 or higher, you'll also get free diet counseling.

How Often: At your physical exam each year.

Health plans vary on what they offer for counseling. The recommendation from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force is for 12 to 26 sessions of comprehensive, intensive behavior interventions, but it doesn’t give details. Plans may offer telephone counseling, health coaches, group sessions, or referrals to Weight Watchers. Counseling may be from your main doctor or from other experts.


Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Prevention Counseling

What It Does: Teaches adults at risk how to avoid STDs. This prevention counseling also helps you know if you should be tested for STDs.

How Often: At your physical exam each year.


Syphilis Test

What It Does: Blood test to check for syphilis.

How Often: At your annual physical exam for people at high risk. A pregnant woman is screened at her first prenatal exam.


Tobacco Use Screening Test

What It Does: Evaluates how your tobacco use affects your risk for diseases by asking a series of questions. Tobacco users at increased risk receive free counseling to help them quit smoking or using tobacco.

How Often: At your physical exam each year. Health plans have a lot of flexibility in what they offer for counseling because the requirement doesn't include any specific medications or counseling. There is a separate set of free preventive services specifically for women and another set for children.
