02.28.12 | Bob Price

Nearly 4 million Pennsylvanians have used at least one free preventive service - ranging from annual checkups to tests for specific types of cancer ....thanks to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. 
The health-care overhaul requires insurance plans cover a variety of preventive health services, including screenings for colon cancer, mammograms, child visits and flu shots.
According to the Health and Human Services Department, 54 million people have gotten free preventive services through the landmark health-care law.
