How Healthy Are You?
Any time is a good time to focus on your health and Healthy You! From the very young to the young-at-heart, Healthy You! can help you be as healthy as possible at every stage of your life.
Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi’s signature Healthy You! wellness benefit is one of the best ways you can be healthy and stay healthy. Having an annual visit with your healthcare provider can help you know your health status, understand your health risks and keep track of your health over time. At no out-of-pocket cost, you receive an annual visit with your healthcare provider for health screenings which include cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and BMI.
Additional health screenings are also covered depending on your age and gender. To learn more about the screenings covered by Healthy You!, see the screening guidelines in our Healthy You! Wellness Guide. Children receive up to eight covered visits during their first two years of life, including immunizations recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Take advantage of this valuable benefit today – here’s how to get started!
- Schedule your Healthy You! visit! If you don't have a Network Provider, you can search for one using our secure myBlue member portal. Log in right from our homepage, then select the My Benefits tab and click the "Find a Network Provider" button.
- When you call to schedule your visit, identify yourself as a Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi member and let the office staff know you are scheduling your Healthy You! visit.
- Before your visit, make a list of any questions to ask or health issues to discuss with your provider. You can even write them in your Healthy You! Wellness Guide, which you can download and print here.
- When you arrive for your visit, be sure to let the office staff and nurse know you're there for your Healthy You! visit. It’s a good idea to take a list of the recommended screenings for your age and gender to be sure you receive them all. Ask the nurse for your results and record them in your guide so you can track your “numbers” over time.
- Before you leave, schedule your Healthy You! visit for next year!
