Adult Screenings

Recommended screenings for adults

Some health problems like heart disease and cancer don’t develop overnight. They take time. That’s why it’s important for adults to have health screenings. They help find risk factors for conditions like diabetes and heart disease, so they can be managed or even prevented. Plus, cancer screenings help find the disease as early as possible. This helps increase the chances for survival.

Recommendations for adults at normal risk:

Effective 10/01/2013, well exams for adults will be an AHCCCS-covered service. Well visits are when a person goes to the doctor's office for a routine check-up instead of going for a cold or some other sickness. Pap tests, mammograms and colonoscopies are also covered.
