Preventive Health Guidelines
WHA's Preventive Health Guidelines are developed based on the recommendations of
nationally recognized sources.*
The information is designed to help you understand the preventive screening exams and services available to you and your family. You may download a copy of the Preventive Health Guidelines or to request a copy by mail, contact Member Services at 916.563.2250, 888.563.2250 or TTY/TDD 888.877.5378. Most preventive care services are part of your medical plan, at no additional cost to you.
Disclaimer: Coverage for WHA services depends on eligibility at the time of service.
We encourage our physicians to use the guidelines to help promote and educate their patients about potentially life-saving preventive services and screenings such as mammograms, colorectal cancer screenings and immunization recommendations. Physicians apply the standards based on a patient's age, gender, and health risk-status.
By following these guidelines and talking with your doctor, you are taking important steps that help to safeguard you and your family's health.
Guidelines are provided by age range: Click on the desired link below for information specific to that age range.
Immunizations: Children, as well as adults need to be immunized against communicable diseases. For adults, your doctor will want to discuss flu and other vaccines depending on your personal health history. Visit http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/index.html or mywha.org/shots for current immunization recommendations.
