Our insurance provider, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi, has many benefits for its members from a Nurse Advice Line, a call center staffed with registered nurses that answer questions and give advice on healthcare decisions that may save you time and unnecessary medical expenses, to a free smoking cessation program to help you quit smoking.
Another of these benefits is a program called Healthy You!. Healthy You! is a wellness benefit that provides you and your covered dependents an annual wellness visit with your doctor or nurse practitioner as long as they are in the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Network. Your visit is paid 100% with no deductible, copay or coinsurance but you must tell the provider that it is your Healthy You! visit.
Covered wellness screenings and immunizations are based on age and gender guidelines to ensure you receive the screenings you need to “know your numbers” and manage your health risks, both at an early age and as you get older. For example, females aged 18 + can get free pap smears, pelvic exams and breast exams, while females 35 + can also get free mammograms as a part of their Healthy You! visit.
