BCBSAZ Preventive Services

Chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are some of the leading causes of death and disability in the U.S.

Although these chronic diseases are among the most common and costly health problems, they are also some of the most preventable.

BCBSAZ is committed to providing the full range of preventive services and screenings to address chronic diseases. As a member of a Blue Medicare Advantage plan, you can receive these Medicare-covered services with applicable co-payments. Please consult your Evidence of Coverage for specific co-payments.
