What are Gaps in Care?
BCBS continuously analyzes healthcare information to look for opportunities to recommend certain tests, medications, or treatments based upon the established best practice medical guidelines. These are called Gaps in Care.
To assist members on their journey to better health, BCBS will notify them of any gaps in care identified for their unique circumstance. The messages may include recommendations to discuss with their healthcare provider or may just be a reminder to schedule annual wellness care such as an eye exam for diabetics.
Members are not required to close any gaps in coverage to earn the wellness premium waiver.
What is the Non-Tobacco user discount?
All PEEHIP members and covered spouses enrolled in the PEEHIP Hospital Medical Group #14000 Plan or VIVA Health Plan are each charged a $50 per month tobacco premium.
Members who do not use tobacco or electronic smoking devices can have the tobacco premium waived by certifying under penalty of perjury that they and/or their covered spouse have not used tobacco products or electronic smoking devices within the last 12 consecutive months.
Certification can be done online through MOS or by submitting a completed New Enrollment and Status Change form.
