DON’T IGNORE THE SIGNS OF HEARING LOSS
Have you noticed yourself having trouble hearing on the phone, turning up the volume on your TV too high or asking people to repeat themselves? These could be signs of hearing loss, so it’s important to get checked out.
Even if you aren’t experiencing any of these signs, you should still get a routine hearing exam each year. Your Blue Advantage plan includes up to one routine hearing exam every year for a $10 copay, plus you get a $500 allowance every year on your Flex Card for prescription hearing aids (total for both ears).
DON’T LET FALLS TRIP YOU UP
Did you know that falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths in older adults? Small things can quickly become a serious hazard for seniors. That’s why it’s important to check your surroundings and reduce obvious dangers.
Most falls happen at home. To help prevent these falls, make a few small changes around the house:
Another great way to prevent falls is to regularly visit your primary care provider (PCP). Your PCP can give you fall-prevention tips, plus talk to you about any concerns you have with your vision or balance.
TAKE STEPS TO FIGHT THE FLU
Getting a flu shot is just one way to help you, your family and your friends stay healthy. As a Blue Advantage member, you can get your flu shot at a network pharmacy or from your primary care provider (PCP) at no cost, so call today to get scheduled.
Plus, the flu shot counts as one of the activities to earn a $25 gift card as part of the Member Rewards Program.
TAKE ACTION TO PREVENT STROKES
A stroke is caused by blocked blood flow to the brain. This can affect speech, movement and memory. Strokes can happen at any age, but your risk is higher if you’re over 65.
The good news is that up to 80% of strokes could be prevented by living a healthy lifestyle. Talk to your primary care provider about what you can do to avoid a stroke. Your annual wellness visit can be the perfect time to ask about steps to take to stay healthy.
TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR BEHAVIORAL HEALTH
Managing your overall health includes taking care of your emotional and mental well-being, too. And your Blue Advantage plan makes it easy to get online behavioral health care right from home.
With BlueCare for behavioral health, you can schedule an online visit with a psychology or psychiatry provider for a $40 copay to discuss depression, grief, stress, life transitions and more. You can also check your Evidence of Coverage for in-person mental and behavioral health benefits of your plan.
Don’t forget! With our Member Rewards Program, you can earn up to $50 in gift cards for completing health actions to maintain and improve your health. Plus, the program includes helpful tools and resources for health conditions and healthy lifestyle support!
