Putting Your Health First

stay healthyWhile Marketplace health coverage is important, there’s no substitute for living a healthy lifestyle. Staying healthy increases the chances you’ll be there for your family and friends for many years to come. Use your Marketplace health coverage when you are sick and when you are well, to help you live a long and healthy life.
Here’s what you can do to put your health and well-being first:

  • Take an active role in your health.
  • Make time for physical activity, healthy eating, relaxation, and sleep.
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle at home, at work, and in your community.

Get your recommended health screenings and manage chronic conditions.

Why is prevention important?
Getting recommended preventive services and making healthy lifestyle choices are key steps to good health and well-being. All Marketplace plans must cover a set of preventive services like shots and screening tests at no cost to you.

Preventive health services include screenings, check-ups, and patient counseling. You can use these services to prevent illnesses, disease, and other health problems. You can also use preventive health services to detect illness at an early stage when treatment is likely to work best.
