Co-pays becoming a thing of the past for preventive services
Los Angeles Times

If you’ve been holding off getting screened for high cholesterol, diabetes or hypertension because of a co-payment, you soon won’t have a reason to put it off.

That’s because co-payments, which typically cost at least $20, for a host of preventive services will disappear starting Jan. 1 for most workers thanks to the Affordable Care Act. For others, they’re already seeing that benefit under the new health law, or soon will if they bought a new individual policy or have renewed in the past month.
