UVA Health Plan Preventive Information

Preventive care is given to you when you're symptom-free and have no reason to believe you might be unhealthy. Preventive care is often given as part of a routine physical or checkup. Diagnostic care is what you receive when you have symptoms or risk factors and your doctor wants to diagnose them. During a provider's visit, whether it's a physical or medical office visit, if the service is used to diagnose, monitor or treat an illness or injury, then copays, coinsurance and deductibles will apply.

  • Why did I get a charge for a lab test that the doctor ordered during my yearly physical exam?

    While physical exams that are coded as “preventive” by your participating provider will be processed at 100%, if there are additional tests that are not coded as a “preventive” test (i.e. submitted with a medical condition such as history of high blood pressure), the tests will go towards your deductible and coinsurance as a diagnostic test, even if the tests are done during your annual exam. There are specific lab tests that may be designated as preventive.
