Care Options

When you’re sick or injured there are several places to go for care – a doctor’s office, an urgent care center, or the emergency room. How do you choose between the three of them? That starts with understanding your options, so you can make the best decisions for you and your family.

Preventive Care

Why is regular preventive care so important? It focuses on maintaining your overall health – and can help you avoid serious health problems down the road. This vital type of healthcare includes immunizations, vaccines, physical evaluations, lab work, x-rays and health screenings. And yes, even flu shots.

For most Blue KC policies, when your doctor is in-network, your preventive services will be covered at 100%.
