Your Health, Our Passion

Did you know, most health insurance plans include wellness or preventative care benefits at no additional cost, which can help you to avoid illness and improve your health. If your plan includes preventative care, you may not have to pay a copayment , co-insurance, or deductible to receive recommended preventive health services, such as screenings, vaccinations and counseling.

At Billings OB-GYN Associates, we help you get the most of your preventative care insurance to protect the health of you and your family. Our Well Woman Exam provides you with a review of your health habits and risk factors and a general exam to assess your overall wellness. The exam includes a breast exam and pap smear to screen for cervical cancer, and, for women over age 50, it also includes screening for colorectal cancer and evaluates your risk for osteoporosis.

You may also have access to additional preventive services offered by your other health care providers, such as:

  • Blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol tests
  • Many cancer screenings, including mammograms and colonoscopies
  • Counseling on such topics as quitting smoking, losing weight, eating healthfully, treating depression and reducing alcohol use
  • Routine vaccinations against diseases such as measles, polio or meningitis
  • Flu and pneumonia shots
  • Counseling, screening, and vaccines to ensure healthy pregnancies
  • Regular well-baby and well-child visits, from birth to age 21

Contact your insurance provider to find out what preventative care benefits are available to you and your family.
