Protect Your Heart: Get Free Tests & Prevention

Are you worried about heart disease? You can stop worrying and get checked to see how likely you are to get it -- for free. Under the Affordable Care Act, most health plans will offer you access to free tests for conditions that lead to heart disease. You could also get free preventive services to help you focus on making your everyday habits heart-healthy.

Free Heart Disease Tests

With most health insurance plans, you can receive free tests for these conditions without having to pay a copay, coinsurance, or even a deductible. These tests are used to help find conditions early, before you have symptoms.

Free Preventive Care Services for Your Heart

Having your blood pressure, cholesterol, and weight checked routinely is the first part of preventive heart care. You can also use free services from your health plan to improve habits that affect your chances of getting heart disease.

Talk with your doctor about whether you need a daily aspirin. Taking a low-dose aspirin each day can help prevent a second heart attack and cut your risk of stroke.

Nutrition counseling. What you eat affects your risk of heart disease. Free counseling can help you choose heart-healthy foods more often.

Obesity counseling. If your weight is raising your risk of heart disease, counseling may help you lose and manage your weight and lower your risk. If you are overweight or obese, even losing 10 pounds can lower your chance of developing heart disease.Your doctor can tell you about different ways to lose weight, such as a weight loss plan with personalized counseling. A plan could involve setting weight loss goals, improving your diet, and increasing physical activity.

Tobacco use. Your doctor can help you develop a plan for quitting or guide you to someone who can. A solid quit-plan can include strategies to handle cravings, medication, getting support from family and friends, and exercise.
