Encourage your employees to have
regular checkups.

For your employees, staying well includes seeing a health care provider even when they are healthy. Their primary care provider will know the right screenings for their ages and overall health. Their provider can tell them how to live healthier. Checkups can spot small problems before they become big issues. Having a regular doctor also makes getting care easier for your employee when they are sick.

  • Encourage your employees to make an appointment for the annual wellness exam covered by their health care benefits.
  • Do your employees need to find primary care providers? They can call the customer service number on their ID cards. Or they can visit www.bcbst.com and look under “Find a Doctor.”
  • Part of the regular checkups should include a discussion about what vaccinations are needed to guard against disease. Even adults need shots at various points in their lives. (See article “Do you know which vaccines you need?” on page 2.)
  • Remind your employees to make their primary care providers partners in staying well. The result can be a longer, healthier life.
