Be prepared with questions

- Share information such as allergies, medications and past procedures that will help your doctor provide the best possible care.
- Make a list of any questions or concerns you have ahead of time so you don’t forget when you are on the spot.
Always carry your insurance card
Your health plan is not just for when you or your family members are sick. It’s also important to understand and use the preventive care that is available to you when you are well. These preventive checkups, like annual physicals and immunization vaccines, are available at no added cost to you and, more importantly, can help you stay healthy.
Health plans that are part of Hixme Health Bundles offer many preventive services without charging you a copayment or coinsurance when you visit a doctor in your network. This is true even if you haven’t met your yearly deductible. Your core health plan can confirm if the preventive services below for adults, women and children are available to you – or the Hixme Contact Center.
