Preventive/Wellness Exam

PREVENTIVE / WELLNESS EXAM

Getting regular check-ups is important for everyone – even if you are in good health. By getting a preventive/wellness exam, your doctor may be able to identify your risk for future medical problems, screen for diseases, encourage a healthy lifestyle, and update your vaccinations.

Can I participate?

Employees (and their spouses) that are actively enrolled in medical coverage through Texas Health Resources  are eligible to participate.

How do I participate?

  • Make an appointment with your doctor for your preventive/wellness exam. This exam may be performed by your primary care physician or women can get a well-woman exam with their gynecologist.
  • It is important that your doctor’s office codes your visit as a “wellness exam” and not a routine office visit so you will be able to receive the reward.
    • Note: If you plan on getting your Wellness Credit Screening completed during your visit, you will need to take a form with you to your appointment and submit the results before Sept. 30, 2022. More information can be found here.

TIP: The medical plan allows for one wellness exam per calendar year; it does not require you to wait 12 months from your last wellness exam to have another. For example, if you had a wellness exam in December 2021, you can have your 2022 wellness exam in February 2022.

What’s in it for me?
