What's an annual preventive visit and how can I get one?

May 2022

As a Blue KC member, you’ll see the “annual preventive visit” getting a lot of air time. And for good reason. 

The annual preventive visit lets your primary care provider (PCP) keep tabs on your overall wellness, hear your health concerns, and prevent issues down the line. The visit includes many routine preventive services, such as immunizations and necessary screenings, and is covered at 100%*.  

Blue KC recommends that everyone receive an annual preventive visit – adults, young children, teens. Be your own best health advocate by going in prepared with questions and concerns. This checklist can help you get organized.  

Schedule your visit 

If you don’t have an in-network PCP, find one in your neighborhood using the Find Care tool on your member portal. Visit, select Find Care in the left column, then enter any of the following in the search bar: PCP, family medicine, internal medicine, general practice, pediatrician, or a specific provider name. 

If you’re a Spira Care member, schedule your $0** preventive visit at one of eight Spira Care Centers in the Kansas City metro area.  

 A few other tips to keep in mind when you schedule your appointment: 

  • Ask for preventive care screenings and tests that are 100% covered by your plan. 
  • Ask if there are any tests or treatments done during your appointment that might not be considered preventive care. 
  • Ask if talking about nonpreventive-care health problems during your appointment will lead to extra costs. 

Get rewards

Blue KC takes preventive care a sweet step further with a $25 gift card for completing your annual preventive visit by December 31, 2022. For members with a family plan, the reward applies to adults and children, so a family of four could qualify for $100 in rewards. Login at for details and to register.
