Immunizations and other preventive care are some of the easiest, safest ways to stay healthy. And now, a new law called the Affordable Care Act requires most insurance providers to pay for vaccinations and other preventive services. This means your health plan is expected to fully cover the services without any cost-sharing (a fancy word for out-of-pocket fees such as copayments, coinsurance or a deductible). Good deal.
Due to high health care costs, sometimes people delay or never get immunizations and other preventive care. This is why the new law helps get you covered—because in the end it’s much more expensive to treat illnesses like the flu, diabetes, cancer or whooping cough than it is to prevent them in the first place. Time off work, doctor bills, lab fees and visits to the emergency room add up quickly and can become an expensive drain on you and Colorado’s health care system.
For all of these reasons, and to protect your priceless health, we encourage you to get immunized. This site is the perfect place to find out how the ACA can help you and your family stay healthy for less. Priceless, price-less. Win, win.
