What is the difference between preventive care and diagnostic care?


Preventive care includes certain immunizations (e.g., flu shot)and screenings (e.g., mammogram) for prevention and early detection of conditions or diseases. If a medical condition is diagnosed or considered probable, even during a preventive exam, any follow up visits or treatment will be considered diagnostic. When you visit your doctor for a check-up, always be sure to confirm whether the visit and services you receive are considered preventive or diagnostic.
