Can my physician do this type of preventive health screening as part of my routine physical?

Probably not. If you are asymptomatic, meaning you are not yet sick and feel well, but have risk factors such as age, family history of disease or certain health conditions, it’s likely your insurance won’t authorize the test, or pay for it. Once you have our screenings, your doctor can use the results to determine next steps, including ordering insurance-covered diagnostic testing and treatment if necessary.
