Health and Wellness Programs
Treating yourself right isn't a fad, it's a good habit. And it's a habit anyone can pick up. Let our Wellness programs improve the areas of your life that could use a boost.
A lifetime of good health starts with quality medical care throughout your life. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), this care is now within the reach of all Americans. ACA requires health plans to eliminate cost sharing and cover preventive care services recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), guidelines specifically issued for women and adopted by Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, and the Bright Futures Guidelines of the Academy of Pediatrics.
The following recommendations are general guidelines for all ages and should not dictate the care you receive. Your doctor will let you know what tests and exams you may need based on your specific risk factors and overall health.
- Guidelines may change throughout the year based on new or revised laws and/or regulations, and additional guidance.
- Services must be billed with a primary diagnosis of preventive, screening, counseling, or wellness, if applicable, to qualify and other restrictions may apply.
- Your benefits plan may contain additional preventive care benefits, exclusions and limitations. Check your plan documents for a complete description of benefits, exclusions, limitations, and condition of coverage.
- Grandfathered plans (a plan that hasn’t changed since 2010) may have costs. See your plan documents to find your specific coverage and costs.
- Talk to your health care provider about a proper schedule of check-up visits.
Preventive Care versus Diagnostic Care
Comprehensive evaluation to prevent health problems; you do not have symptoms or other abnormal studies suggesting abnormalities
Medical care to treat or diagnose a problem, to monitor existing problems, or follow up on abnormal test results.
Get free assistance with chronic health and access to care
Managing a health condition can be challenging. To make it a little easier, Baylor Scott & White Health offers employees and dependents of Scott and White Health Plan disease management services through the Baylor Scott & White Quality Alliance Comprehensive Care Management team.
A care manager can help you stick with your care plan, manage your prescriptions, and schedule your doctors’ appointments. Care managers may even reach out to your physician to help facilitate conversations about your health concerns.
Care managers will reach out to you if you’ve been identified as having a chronic health condition such as asthma, diabetes, COPD, or a variety of other conditions that warrant focused care. Or you may prefer to contact a care manager at your convenience by calling the HealthAccess Center at 1-844-279-7589. The HealthAccess Center can also help you find Tier 1 providers in the Scott and White Health Plan.
Complex Case Management
This program is for members who have chronic conditions or complex care needs. A nurse case manager will work with members, families, and the physician to create a plan to meet the member’s ongoing complex care needs. Case managers advocate for members and assist them with setting goals and making a personal plan to improve their health. They also can assist with arrangements for necessary services. Case managers answer questions and provide education to help members have a better understanding of their condition and plan of care.
The purpose of the program is to help members get the best possible results and the greatest value from their health plan. Participation is voluntary. There is no additional cost to members for this program.
For more information, please request a screening to see if Complex Case Management is the right program for your needs.
Maternity Topics and MOMS Program
Scott and White Health Plan supports new and expecting parents. In the MOMS Program, licensed professionals provide important information and resources for new moms and dads, and answer any questions they may have as they plan for their newborn.
