Your primary care provider and youPrimary care providers (PCP) are preventive care specialists who can help you reduce your risks and help you create lifelong healthy habits. They get to know you and your family, your work demands and exercise habits, and partner with you for the best health-related choices for you.
If you don't have a PCP, you can preview providers in your plan’s network using our Find a Doctor tool. Select any one of the following specialties and make an appointment for your preventive care visit:
- Family Medicine
- General Practice
- Geriatric Medicine
- Internal Medicine
Preventive care done differently
We handle preventive care differently than most other insurance companies. We offer no-charge preventive services whether our members have been previously diagnosed with an illness or not. With most other plans, if a member has been diagnosed with an illness, screenings are coded as "diagnostic" and are no longer preventive.
What does this mean?For example, if you have been diagnosed with high cholesterol in the past we will cover your first annual blood work at your preventive care visit under your preventive care benefits. Or if you have a colonoscopy at your preventive care exam and your provider determines you need to have polyp removal, we will cover that under your preventive care benefit.
Why do we do this?We are committed to enriching our members’ lives so our members can reach their best health. Preventive care will help preserve and frequently improve our members’ health, and in the long run that contributes to lower health care costs. Preventive care is a benefit to our members both medically and financially.
