Keep up with clinical practice guidelines

Security Health Plan regularly reviews medical literature and opinions. We publish clinical practice guidelines for our providers' benefit. It is important to keep you updated on health information. 

These guidelines have been gathered from medical literature and opinion, and are not a substitute for a provider’s judgment.

Security Health Plan recommends members prescribed medication to treat ADHD attend follow-up evaluations during:

  • Initial phase: One follow-up visit with prescribing provider within 30 days of beginning medication.
  • Continuation and maintenance phase: Members on medication more than 210 days should receive two follow-up visits within 270 days after initial phase.

Preventive Guidelines Charts

At Security Health Plan we believe in the value of preventive screenings. Here are recommended guidelines for adults and children. These are for individuals at normal risk. A provider may want a member to start screening earlier or have more frequent screening if the member is at a higher risk. Important preventive services are covered based on how often they occur, regardless of your diagnosis.
