Physical Health & Wellness

One of the ways you can participate in the wellness incentive program is by completing an annual preventative visit with your doctor. Preventive care services are free with your BCBS health insurance plan. Being proactive helps keep you healthy. Your annual physical, immunizations, and screenings are an important part of staying healthy. They can help detect or prevent serious diseases and help you stay healthy.

In addition, our Wellness Program provides a fun and personalized wellness experience with resources tailored to you, giving you more ways to engage in healthy activities while earning rewards.
