Preventive Health

The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) has recommendations for preventive services for adults, which private insurers and employment-based plans are required to cover. Increasing awareness could encourage patients to adopt proactive behaviours in protecting or improving health status. Nothing similar in the UK by the way.

What do they recommend?

Abdominal aortic aneurysm screening: men especially.

Blood pressure checks in adults over 18.

Cholesterol abnormalities checks from age 24.

Healthy diet counseling.

Obesity screening and counselling.

Osteoporosis screening in women over 60.

Fall prevention: exercise/physical therapy in women over 65.

Carotid artery stenosis checks in the over 65s.

All cancer screens over aged >65.

CORE HEALTH can do all of this and more for you. In the UK Private Medical Insurers,BUPA for example, will not cover for health prevention. Why not?
