Preventive Care: Screenings for You and Your Family

Preventive care helps you stay healthy and get effective treatment when you need it. Not to mention, it can also reduce your overall medical expenses. And, as you may know, Baker Hughes pays 100% of the cost of preventive care visits for you and your enrolled family members when you receive services from an in-network provider.

But, do you know what types of age-appropriate screenings and tests you and your family may need?

CVS/caremark Mail Service Pharmacy Program

Your doctor prescribes you a maintenance medication, a medication that you will take every day or for a long period of time, for chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, asthma, diabetes, and high cholesterol. Baker Hughes’s pharmacy partner, CVS/caremark, has a Mail Service Pharmacy Program that lets you easily fill your long-term or maintenance medications with no hassle. Your pharmacy program allows you to receive three (3) 30-day fills (original fill and two refills) of maintenance or long-term prescriptions through any network retail pharmacy before you are required to fill 90-day prescriptions either by mail or going to a CVS Pharmacy®. Don’t forget, for short-term medications, you can fill your medication through any CVS/caremark network retail pharmacy.

How to Get Your Maintenance Medications through the Mail Service Pharmacy Program

Delivery by mail through CVS Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy Program is convenient and easy. It only takes a few minutes to get started and receiving refills is quick and easy.

There are three ways to change your current maintenance medication to a 90-day supply:

  1. Sign in to Caremark.com (and register if necessary).
    Click on Start a New Prescription. Have your member ID card ready and fill in your information. We’ll contact your doctor for you.
  2. Call CVS Customer Care at 1-800-875-0867.
    A representative will fill out the order form and contact your doctor for you. Have your ID number (on your member ID card), prescription name, doctor’s name and phone number, and payment information ready when you call.
  3. Ask your doctor to call 1-800-378-5697.
    Ask your doctor to call in your prescription for a 90-day supply. Your doctor will need your ID number from your member ID card. Your doctor can also e-prescribe to CVS Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy (NCPDP ID 322038).

Your medication will be delivered within 10 days from the time your order is received.

Know Where to Go When You Need Care

Late at night. On the road. Can’t get an appointment with your regular doctor. When you or a family member are sick, it may seem easier to just head to the ER. The truth is, going to the ER may not be necessary and it'll probably cost you much more unless you experience a true emergency like a heart attack or broken bone. The good news is, you have options!

Nurseline

When you have questions about your health, call the 24/7 NurseLine, anytime, any day of the week. They can help you decide when to visit your doctor or go to an Urgent Care or ER, find network doctors and schedule appointments, and more! Call 1-866-743-6549.

Virtual Visits

Connect with a doctor using your computer or mobile device for non-emergency health issues. Some examples include bronchitis, cold/flu, fever, pinkeye, or sinus problems. Here are the benefits of using Virtual Visits:

  • There’s no driving or crowded waiting rooms.
  • They're available 24/7.
  • Chat face-to-face with a nurse or doctor.
  • Appointments only take about 20 minutes or less!
  • The doctor can prescribe medications (if applicable) and send an electronic request to your pharmacy.
  • The average cost per visit is $50.

Walk-in Clinics

Visit a walk-in clinic to treat minor health conditions. They’re located in many shopping malls, drug stores, and supermarkets, and typically offer shorter waiting times than other options for common conditions. Some examples include allergies, common infections, minor injuries, and skin conditions.

Doctor's Office Visits

Seeing your doctor is usually best for general health management as well as preventive care, because he or she knows your medical history.

Urgent Care Center

Consider this option if your health issue is NOT life-threatening but you need care quickly and your doctor isn’t available. No appointment isneeded and wait times are typically shorter than the ER. Some examples include animal and insect bites, minor burns, minor cuts that may need stitches, sprains, and strains.

Emergency Room (ER)

Head to the nearest emergency room or call 911 right away if you have a true emergency. Minor health issues must wait until people with more critical conditions are seen. Some examples include chest pain or difficulty breathing, sudden weakness, trouble speaking or changes in vision, serious bleeding, burns, or broken bones.
