Preventive Care Q & A

What is preventive care?

Preventive care is a category of medical care that focuses on keeping you healthy. During preventive care visits, your doctor provides approaches designed to manage any of your current and/or chronic health conditions, and prevent new health problems.

AFM Healthcare offers affordable preventive care to everyone, and it has insurance specialists to help geriatric patients navigate Medicare Advantage plans. 

Not only is preventive care affordable, but it also saves you money in the long run. When you schedule regular preventive care services, you stop the development or progression of diseases and illnesses, and you keep chronic conditions from getting out of hand. 

This means you’re much less likely to end up in the hospital or emergency room, both of which are much more expensive than a trip to AFM Healthcare for a preventive care visit.

When you invest your time in preventive health, you invest in a healthier future for yourself and your family. 

What types of preventive care are available to me?

Preventive care includes services like:

  • Annual physicals
  • Cholesterol screening
  • Booster shots
  • Wellness visits
  • Flu shots
  • Vision screening
  • Men’s health visits
  • Chronic care management

At a preventive care visit, AFM Healthcare may also provide you with lifestyle counseling, including guidance on prenatal health, diet, and behavioral health.

How does preventive care help my chronic condition?

Chronic care management is one of the many types of preventive care available. It helps you to enjoy the best health possible while living with a chronic illness, such as diabetes, hypertension, cancer, or heart disease.

At the heart of chronic care management is the chronic care plan, which AFM Healthcare partners with you to develop. Chronic care plans include health-related goals and practical steps to achieve those goals. Goals like these include:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Reduced blood sugar levels
  • Improved flexibility or mobility
  • Renewed interest in hobbies
  • Reduced pain 
  • Better breathing

To achieve such goals, the practice may prescribe steps like:

  • Meal planning
  • Changes to your medication
  • Smoking cessation
  • Appointment scheduling
  • Social services 
  • Exercise planning

To hold you accountable and make sure that the plan is working, AFM Healthcare schedules regular follow-up visits.
