Taking Care of Yourself

One of your most important Horizon BCBSNJ benefits is your wellness and preventive care coverage. Taking advantage of covered preventive care services – screenings, checkups and counseling – may improve your health and help you avoid illness. Early detection of any illness offers your best chance of recovery. When you see your PCP, routine preventive care is available at no additional cost to you.

We encourage you to visit your PCP for your annual physical exam and preventive care services. Your PCP may order tests and X-rays, refer you to an in-network specialist or arrange for other services, if needed.

Well care and preventive care coverage includes:

  • Annual physical exams
  • Well child care (including immunizations and lead screenings)
  • Cancer screenings (including colorectal, breast, cervical and prostate screenings)
  • Tests (laboratory work, X-rays)
  • Annual dilated retinal exams for members who have been diagnosed with diabetes
