Preventive Care

Staying on top of your health is crucial.

It’s true that preventive care is key to overall health. But it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. In fact, it can be as simple as stretching at your desk, taking breaks to get up and move around or shutting down your email and signing on to a mental health or mindfulness app. These can all have a big impact on your full health.

Schedule Your Preventive Care Visit

For most Blue KC policies, when your doctor is in-network, your preventive services will be covered at 100%.

Use the Blue KC Find Care tool to locate an in-network provider.

Small Steps Make a Big Difference

Lasting change comes from making small tweaks to your normal routine, so you can stay ahead of problems before they arise. Consider ways to adopt easy, manageable changes into your daily life in any of these categories:

  • Proactive care – Use your Blue KC health plan benefits and services regularly so you can establish trusted relationships with healthcare providers through annual physicals, early screenings and telehealth check-ins.
  • Whole-person health – Consider the connection between physical and mental health, and take the time you need to prioritize it, whether through in-network care or self-guided tools.
  • Healthy habits – Talk to your doctor about which healthy habits—such as easy exercises and healthy snacking—make the most sense for you to start integrating into your routine.
