How to Kickstart Your 2021 Friday Health Plan
So you’ve got your Friday health plan. Awesome! Now what? Now it’s time to get the absolute most out of it.
Here’s a quick guide on how to make the best use of your plan.
Build your health network
First things first: Find your most convenient in-network hospital, urgent care, and doctor through the provider search. Then, put their info straight into your smartphone so you have it conveniently at your fingertips whenever you need it.
And remember, you’re only covered if you go to an in-network doctor or facility (except in the case of a medical emergency, then get yourself to the nearest ER!)
Set up your free annual wellness exam
An annual wellness exam is a free comprehensive preventive exam with your primary care provider. Always a good idea to get this done early in the year!
The exam includes: preventive tests, screenings, immunizations, and referrals for other care. See the documents below for a list of covered services:
Important note: Ask your doctor ahead of time about COVID-19 guidelines for your appointment. And if you feel more comfortable doing a virtual visit, most doctors are making it easy to connect via telehealth. You can protect yourself and your loved ones from COVID-19, while still taking care of your long-term health!
Please also know ahead of time that some tests ordered by your doctor during the wellness exam may not be $0. Be sure to ask first!
Set up your monthly premium payment
On the Member Portal, you can enter a credit card or bank account for automatic on-time payments, making sure your coverage stays put. We take bank withdrawals too!
Save time and money by seeing your doctor on Teladoc for $0
Can't make it to the doctor's office or stuck at home with a sick kid? Speak with a doctor 24/7 by phone or video for $0 with Teladoc on ALL Friday plans!
