How Wellthy helps coordinate preventative screenings

Preventative health services and screenings focus on detecting health issues or diseases in their earliest, most treatable stages before symptoms appear. Common screenings include blood pressure tests to check for hypertension, colonoscopies to look for signs of inflammatory bowel disease or colon cancer, skin checks for abnormal growths, and mammograms for women above the age of 40 to detect breast cancer in its early stages.

While preventative screenings lack the urgency of treating a current diagnosis for yourself or a loved one, they shouldn’t be put off. Staying on top of preventative care allows for conditions to be treated before they become larger problems, in addition to significantly reducing healthcare costs down the road.

Here are just a few examples of how Wellthy’s care experts can help you and your family stay on top of your screenings.


  • Schedule screening appointments with in-network providers

  • Submit appeals when recommended preventative services are not covered by insurance

  • Research and suggest specialists as needed to address screening results

  • Connect families with support services, resources, and care amid a new diagnosis

  • Provide education on the importance of preventative care


Care shouldn’t be something you tackle alone. Our team of care experts helps families consider all aspects of care (medical, housing, in-home, financial) during all phases of life – from building and raising a family, to caring for aging, managing mental health, navigating a new diagnosis, and keeping up with routine healthcare needs.
