Health Care Reform Mandates Preventative Services.
However, if Preventive care is given during an Office Visit or as an outpatient it might not be covered that under the Preventative Care section of your policy. Check with your doctor. Preventative Screenings and other services are covered with no deductible for adults and children with no current symptoms or history of a health problem. Specimen Policy Page 92
If one has history or symptoms, then it’s covered under the diagnostic benefit Page 74 Subject to Co-Pays & the Deductible. Maintenance of a known problem, like those listed below as common risk factors, is certainly preventative, but isn’t defined that way under ObamaCare and is subject to the regular co-pays and deductibles. Peter Lee of Covered CA thinks that’s a BIG problem, read more by on the link. Annual physicals may not be a benefit LA Times 8.2.2016

en.wikipedia.org/ Orthostatic hypotension (/ˌɔrθəˈstætɪkˌhaɪpəˈtɛnʃən/) , also known as postural hypotension, orthostasis, and colloquially as head rush or dizzy spell, is a form of hypotension in which a person’s blood pressure suddenly falls when standing up or stretching. In medical terms, it is defined as a fall in systolic blood pressure of at least 20 mm Hg or diastolic blood pressure of at least 10 mm Hg when a person assumes a standing position.
The symptom is caused by blood pooling in the lower extremities upon a change in body position. It is quite common and can occur briefly in anyone, although it is prevalent in particular among the elderly, and those with low blood pressure.
