Aetna Better Health wants you to stay healthy. One of the best ways you can stay healthy is to schedule a yearly well-woman checkup. These visits are covered through your benefits as an Aetna Better Health member.
During this checkup, your provider will do a:
- Cervical cancer screening (Pap test) to check for cervical cancer
- Breast exam to check for breast cancer
- Test to check for Chlamydia
You may not have any signs or symptoms of these problems. Getting a well-woman checkup each year can help catch problems early, before they become difficult to treat. A woman’s health can change quickly. That’s why it’s important to schedule a well-woman checkup each year.
You can call your primary care provider (PCP) to schedule a well-woman checkup, or you may call an OB/GYN. You do not need a referral. We have both male and female OB/GYNs available. Search online at Find a Provider.
Being active and eating well is also important to staying healthy. Read these tips on nutrition and exercise to control your blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol.
