New this plan year, all ACA listed preventive services will be covered at 100% regardless of the plan in which you are enrolled. If you haven’t scheduled your annual visit with your Primary Care Physician (PCP), now is a great time to get that done. If you don’t have a PCP, you can find a searchable list of providers on the Blue Cross of Idaho Member Portal, members.bcidaho.com.
The plan also increased the annual dental maximum to $1,500. Don’t have a regular dentist to get your cleanings every six months? You can also find dentists in the searchable provider feature on the Blue Cross of Idaho Member Portal.
Check out the whole list of New Plan Year Highlights [PDF] that include information about:
- Telehealth services with MDLive (now with a lower copay for the PPO plan)
- Diabetes No-Copay Program
- Identity Theft Protection with AllClear ID
- New pharmacy copay amounts
- And more…
