Take three simple actions to protect your patients: Talk about sexual health, test for Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) as recommended, and treat patients following approved guidelines. Recommend appropriate Medicare-covered preventive services, including:

  • Screening for Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and High Intensity Behavioral Counseling to Prevent STIs  
  • Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) Screening
  • HBV Vaccine and Administration
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Screening
