Preventive vs. diagnostic care

What’s the difference? Preventive care helps protect you from getting sick. If your doctor recommends you have services even though you have no symptoms, that’s preventive care. Diagnostic care is when you have symptoms and your doctor recommends services to determine what’s causing those symptoms. Review Anthem's Preventive Care [PDF] benefits including physical exams, tests, immunizations and women's preventive care for further details.
