    Getting Care

    Is my doctor covered by my plan?

    You can search for the doctors, specialists, and other providers covered by your specific plan.

    What care options do I have?

    Check out the programs and services covered by your specific plan.

    Should I go to urgent care or the emergency room?

    You’ll have to decide based on how you’re feeling. We can make that choice a little easier. 

    Is my prescription medication covered?

    Review the list of drugs to see which medications are covered.

    Is my annual check-up fully covered?

    When you receive preventive care, you won't have a copay. During that visit, if you also receive care that's not considered preventive care, then a copay will be charged. For example: If you go to your doctor for a seasonal flu shot and an annual wellness visit, you wouldn't have a copay because these are preventive care services. If during the same visit, you tell your doctor about a condition that requires an X-ray or you ask to have a skin tag removed, you would have a copay for those two services. That's because the X-ray is used to diagnose and the skin tag removal is a separate procedure, neither of which are considered preventive care. It's helpful to know what types of care are considered preventive. Preventive care includes:

    • An annual wellness visit that is a comprehensive, preventive medicine evaluation that results in a prevention plan based on your needs
    • Services to help you avoid illness or injury, including flu shots or pneumonia vaccines
    • Tests and screenings to detect undiagnosed diseases or problems, including routine cancer screenings, such as mammograms

    Preventive care does not include:

    • Diagnosis or monitoring of a problem or symptom you already have
    • Treatment of pain or other symptoms of an illness or disease
    • Treatment of problems found during a preventive care appointment
