Checkup is a limited benefit program, which provides coverage for preventive health care, family planning services and family planning-related services. This program does not meet the standard for Minimum Essential Coverage under the Affordable Care Act. This means you may have to pay a tax penalty if you do not have other health insurance coverage. You may, however, still be eligible for federal programs that will help you pay for insurance through tax subsidies. To learn more about health insurance coverage options or qualifying for an exemption, visit or call 1-800-318-2596.
