Why is preventative health care important?
Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, are responsible for 7 of every 10 deaths among Americans each year and account for 75% of the nation’s health spending. These chronic diseases can be largely preventable through close partnership with your healthcare team, or can be detected through appropriate screenings, when treatment works best.
- Eating healthy
- Exercising regularly
- Avoiding tobacco
- Preventive services such as cancer screenings, wellness visits and vaccinations are just a few examples of ways you and your family can stay healthy at every age.
The right preventive care at every stage of life helps all Americans stay healthy, avoid or delay the onset of disease, keep diseases they already have from becoming worse or debilitating, lead productive lives, and reduce costs.
