They’ll build healthy habits, have fun with friends, and experience the lifelong rewards of better health and wellbeing.

  • NEW $60 Eyewear Reimbursement – Members can save on glasses and contacts with our new $60 vision allowance available with our non-standard Qualified Health Plans.
  • NEW REACH Kidney Care – Our Care Management team is partnering with REACH Kidney Care, a kidney health management program designed to benefit members along the continuum of kidney disease, specifically targeting members with Stage 4 & 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD). At no cost to members, REACH will provide one-on-one, individualized care management, both in-person and virtually, to help members navigate their health in a way that best fits their life.
  • Acupuncture at PCP Cost Share – Introducing a lower PCP cost share option that will help make acupuncture care more accessible and affordable. Acupuncture visits will now be covered at the PCP cost share, limited to 10 visits per year (subject to deductible, where applicable).
