A Member’s Guide to Maximizing the Free Stuff
Hey there, Friday members! We hope you’re having a healthy and happy 2021.
As we start the new year, we want to make sure you have all the health plan knowledge you need to stay healthy and keep your healthcare costs down.
So today, we’re outlining the free benefits that come with your Friday health plan.
We’re talking about benefits like: free doctor visits, free screenings, free vaccinations, free wellness visits, and more.
As always, if you’re confused by anything you read or have any questions about your plan, benefits, or services, please email our friendly customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Set up your annual wellness visit
An annual wellness visit is a free comprehensive preventive exam with your primary care doctor or OBGYN. It includes certain preventive tests, screenings, and shots. It’s also great for discussing your health history and health goals with your doctor who can make referrals and recommend any further tests that need to be done.
Best of all, this visit is included in every Friday Health plan. And while you can get it done anytime of the year, we suggest getting it done sooner than later (like now-ish). Don't have a primary care doctor or OBGYN yet? Find one near you.
Important note: Some tests ordered by your doctor during the wellness exam may not be covered. Be sure to ask first!
We’ve got your preventive drugs covered
Put that wallet away. With every Friday health plan, you get access to generic Affordable Care Act (ACA) preventive drugs, including birth control. Check that list here.
All plans have access to a wide-range of vaccines to help keep you in ship-shape. You can get these done at your primary care doc’s office or through a Friday covered pharmacy:
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Herpes Zoster
- Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
- Influenza (flu shot)
- Varicella (Chickenpox)
With Friday’s individual Bronze, Silver, and Gold plans (not Bronze HSA), preferred generic drugs are also $0. You can see that list right here.
