Taking advantage of your ACA Health and Wellness Benefits

As you may know your ACA plan is required to provide minimum Essential Health Benefits. But did you know that your health plan also comes with a wide variety of preventive services and screenings at no cost to you? You can access these services through your doctor without being charged a copay or coinsurance, even if you have not yet met your deductible.

Below is a list of these services; however, we encourage you to explore a more comprehensive list at  https://www.healthcare.gov/coverage/preventive-care-benefits . Additionally, some of these services may only be available to individuals that a physician feels are at high risk for a disease, or who are a certain age. Always check with you doctor and with your insurance provider to ensure you will not be charged.

Client Testimonials

What's Included in ACA Health & Wellness Benefits

  • "This is a family-owned business who cares about their potential clients. I was looking for help with health insurance and even though it turns out I don't need new health insurance at this time, I feel compelled to write a review because of how thorough Brendan was. He was very knowledgeable and easy-going. He didn't seem pushy at all and listened to everything I had to say. He made sure he was getting all the information correct. I would recommend this agency for any insurance needs." - Doug C.
  • "I sought help from Wooten Agency; Ed, along with Nancy, took the bull by the horns and sorted things out for us very quickly. Shortly thereafter Ginny took over. She is definitely most qualified as a plan selector for Medicare plans and issues related to Medicare. My appreciation to Crystal for the gracious way she always responds to telephone calls and makes every effort to ensure one is not forgotten. And Dana....the one contact we had was enough to find out you are similarly inclined to help a client." - Frank V.
  • "You [Aaron] have been so helpful, and you have all taken a personal interest in my individual and specific questions in order to make the best insurance choices for my needs. Thank you all! I look forward to working together in the future months and years." - Susan H.
