3 Reasons Why Women Should Choose Blue

3 Reasons Why Women Should Choose Blue

Your health is important. You want to keep up your health and treat any sickness. So, you need a health plan to help you do it.

Here’s three reasons so many women choose Blue.

Reason No. 1 - Your Choice of Doctors

No matter which Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma (BCBSOK) health plan you select, you’ll have many providers to choose from — including a trusted network of OB-GYN physicians. With a large number of Oklahoma doctors and hospitals in our networks, chances are very good that your current health care providers are part of our network.

Before choosing a plan, check Provider Finder®  to see if the doctor or OB-GYN you’d like to use is a part of the health insurance plan you’d like to buy.

To find a plan that’s right for you, shop Plans and Products. All plans have similar benefits, and all include essential health benefits and preventive services for women. They differ in the way costs of benefits are applied.

Women’s Preventive Services
Our health plans cover the following recommended screenings and preventive services for women with no out-of-pocket costs — as long as you visit a doctor in your health plan's provider network. Finding a doctor that provides these screenings and services should be no problem, since BCBSOK has the largest network of doctors in the state.

  • Annual wellness visits
  • Mammograms
  • Pap smears
  • Osteoporosis screenings
  • Certain cancers screenings
  • Diabetes testing
  • Gestational diabetes screenings
  • Testing for Human Papillomavirus (HPV) — the virus that can cause cervical cancer
  • FDA-approved contraception methods and counseling
  • Counseling and screening for HIV — the virus that can cause AIDS
  • Breastfeeding support, counseling and supplies – such as manual and electric breast pumps
  • Interpersonal and domestic violence screening and counseling
  • Counseling for sexually transmitted infections
  • Flu shots and other immunizations

As you can see, so much is covered by your health insurance plan when you use an in-network providereven manual and electric breast pumps. When you become a member, call the number on the back of your member ID card for more details. A  Customer Advocate will work through the details about which pumps are covered and how you can get your pump.

And if pregnancy isn’t for you right now, more than 20 different contraceptives are covered by your health plan, including birth control pills, injections, patches and well-woman check-ups. Prescription coverage for contraceptives may vary according to the terms and conditions of the plan and prescription drug list.
