I recently wrote an article about the benefits of a having and seeing a primary healthcare doctor. In many cases, these doctors are willing to see a whole family during one appointment. So, there’s no excuse for the hard-working mother to miss out on important screenings and healthcare.
In fact, there are quite a few preventative services specifically provided to women and mothers. These types of services often do not require a copay or coinsurance.
Breastfeeding support and counseling
Folic acid supplements
Expanded tobacco intervention and counseling
Urinary tract and other infections screenings
STI and STD screening
Rh incompatibility screening
Gestational diabetes screening
There may be even more services available from your plan provider. Women, Moms and Wives, please make the call and know what services are available to you. And please take care of yourselves, too. We need you.
