Healthcare as we know it is changing. We’re changing the conversation about healthcare to focus on preventing health conditions before they happen. It’s much easier to maintenance our health than it is to fix it once something happens. That’s why it’s important to schedule your annual Healthy You! wellness visit with your Blue Primary Care Network Provider. This wellness benefit is paid at 100% with no deductible, co-pay or coinsurance when you use your Blue Primary Care Network Provider. Your Healthy You! visit is a time each year to have a face-to-face conversation with your physician about your health and your health history, and develop a wellness plan to maintain or improve your health.
Make sure your Healthy You! physician is within a Blue Primary Care Home Network Provider to get the most out of your wellness visit. Clinics with the “Blue Primary Care Home” designation have taken extra steps to work directly with BCBS MS to know exactly what’s covered in your Healthy You! visit, plus the business offices are in touch for more efficient paperwork. One of the biggest advantages of going to a Blue Primary Care Home Network Provider is Color Me Healthy which includes FREE follow up labs and doctor visits based on your individual results for blood glucose, blood pressure, and cholesterol.
