At-a-Glance: Free Preventive Care for Adults

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.
