Your Health and Wellness Resources

Tab/Accordion Item

Disease and Case Management services are available for members with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, diabetes, asthma, cerebrovascular disease and peripheral artery disease. If you are eligible for this service, you will be notified.

 

 

Base PPO Plan (70/30) and Enhanced PPO Plan (80/20) Members:

Adult and child (age 6+) nutrition and weight management services are included under the Affordable Care Act’s preventive services, meaning that they are covered at 100% for members on the Base PPO Plan (70/30) and Enhanced PPO Plan (80/20). These services can be delivered in an in-network* office, urgent care, or outpatient facility settings and include:

  • Nutritional Counseling, which may include counseling specific to achieving or maintaining a healthy weight
  • Obesity Screening
  • Behavioral Intervention

*For out-of-network costs associated with these services, please go to the Employee Benefits page and see your plan’s Benefit Booklet.
 
To find an in-network dietitian, use our Find a Doctor tool and search under "Specialist" for a licensed dietitian/nutritionist.

FDA-approved weight management medications and bariatric surgery are covered benefits. Go to the Employee Benefits page and refer to your plan’s Benefit Booklet and the Preferred Drug List for additional information and restrictions.

Members eligible for services are members whose primary health coverage is through the State Health Plan. Federal law prohibits the Plan from using your personal health information to discriminate against you in any way or from giving this information to your employing agency/school or other unauthorized third party, unless required by law.

Pregnancy Diagnosis and Maternity Visits
You can expect to pay an initial copay or coinsurance cost for your first pregnancy visit (diagnostic visit), or first visit, however, visits thereafter will be covered at no charge. Your remaining maternity visits are covered by one global fee subject to the inpatient copay, deductible, and coinsurance upon hospital admission/delivery.

Adding Newborns to Your Health Plan
You must take action to add your newborn to your health plan.  Your newborn must be added to your health plan within 30 days of their date of birth.

Remember, if you currently have employee-only or employee-spouse coverage, your coverage will change when you add your newborn to either employee-child or employee-family coverage. As a result, you will have to pay the additional premium for the month in which the child is born.

For more information, please see the Adding Dependents section of your plan’s Benefits Booklet, speak with your Health Benefits Representative or call the Eligbility and Enrollment Support Center at 855-859-0966.
