Preventive care
100% coverage to help you stay well.
Regular checkups, tests, and vaccinations can keep you and your family well and prevent serious illness. They’re 100% covered in most Walmart plans.

Care to keep you well.


Zero cost

You’ll pay nothing when
you see a network doctor for
covered preventive services.


What’s covered?

Your plan defines the routine
services, tests, and treatments
that can keep you well.


Network only

If you get care outside
your plan’s network, you’ll pay
some or all of the cost.

How it Works

Network coverage

Network preventive care services are covered at 100% in the Premier, Contribution, Saver, or Local plans. This means that if you see a doctor in your plan’s network for specific preventive services, you pay nothing, and you don’t even need to reach your plan’s deductible first.

Out-of-network coverage

If you choose a doctor outside the network, in most locations you’ll pay 50% of the cost in the Premier, Contribution, or Saver plans.

  • If you’re in one of the plans above and you work in northwest Arkansas, or if you’re in a Local plan anywhere, there’s no out-of-network coverage except in an emergency.
  • If you’re in one of the plans above in central Florida, you’ll pay 50% of the cost.
  • If you’re in one of these plans in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas, you’ll pay 50% for a non-preferred, network doctor, but you’ll have no out-of-network coverage except in an emergency.

Other office visits

If you see a network doctor for something else, and also receive preventive care during the visit, those services are 100% covered—but you’ll still have to pay your copay or coinsurance for the original purpose of the visit.

HMO plans

If you’re in an HMO plan, see your plan’s website or other information for preventive care coverage.

What’s covered?
