Stay Healthy: Schedule Your $0 Wellness Checkup

Your health plan includes one yearly checkup with your primary care doctor—and it’s the easiest way to start using your health plan. This visit is $01 and includes bloodwork and routine screenings like a colonoscopy or bone density test—all you have to do is make an appointment! Seeing your doctor every year is a great way to keep tabs on your health: find out all the ways you’re doing great, and learn about ways to improve!

In case you need more convincing, here are 5 reasons to see your doctor every year. 

So what are you waiting for? Make your appointment today!

  • Log in to your account at or on the app to confirm your primary care doctor selection.
  • Call your doctor to set up your $0 annual checkup.
  • See the specialists, hospitals and pharmacies that are part of your health plan.
  • Note: If you have a myBlue health plan, make your primary care doctor your first stop anytime you need care, including referrals to a specialist. Otherwise, you may have to pay the entire costs (except in an emergency). Read your plan details and know before you go.


1 It’s at no cost unless a health condition is identified or treated or your doctor runs additional tests. Talk to your doctor during the visit to find out more.
