How a Heartwise Physical Can Benefit You
Physicians generally recommended that patients get a routine checkup at least once a year, depending on their age, health status, and risk factors. Regular checkups benefit us by catching health issues early on, staying up-to-date with pelvic exams, and so on.
With that being said, what is a Heartwise Physical and how can it benefit you? Learn more about this type of physical here and discover why you should schedule one.
What is a Heartwise Physical?
Our Heartwise Physical at Victory Medical is a unique type of health screening that helps analyze certain risks such as heart disease, cancer, or stroke.
It’s a preventative type of assessment and it’s non-invasive. This assessment looks at all aspects of cardiovascular health, including treadmill tests, a heart echo, an ultrasound, and more.
Preventative care is vital even if you’re a healthy individual. If you have a family history of a particular disease or condition, regular screenings can help spot early warning signs. Early detection helps you stay healthy and keeps health care costs low.
Insurance plans, such as those covered through the Health Insurance Marketplace, cover preventative services, like stress tests, screenings, and others.
Heartwise Physicals are considered preventative and therefore are covered by most insurance plans. Most people will owe $0, but if you’re unsure, contact us to ask about your coverage.
