We’ve included dental and eye care visits on our chart because your teeth and vision are important, even though they usually
require additional insurance.
We’ve found places for you to go for cheap eye exams, so you probably don’t need vision insurance unless you already have glasses or contacts. You should, however, have dental insurance. (After all, if you crack a tooth or get a cavity, you’ll be in the dog house!)
Remember, getting preventive care now will save you tons of money and stress in the future.
Here are the check-ups you should receive regularly to stay in good health and get the most from your insurance plan.
Note: For the following estimates, the price you’ll pay if you have insurance will vary widely by your insurance type. Generally, you might have to pay a small amount at the time of the visit (a copayment). Other insurance plans will require that you pay the full amount until you’ve paid a set amount in total for the year (the deductible), at which point normal insurance care will kick in.
