When you enroll in an individual or employer-sponsored health insurance plan, you most likely pay a monthly premium for your coverage. This premium helps pay for your medical care, but that’s not all it gives you access to. Most health insurance plans come with many other benefits at no extra cost to you.
Many of these extras help you manage your health and well-being, track your health care expenses, find and receive quality care within your health plan network, get exclusive deals on health and fitness products, save on prescription drugs, and much more.
If you have a Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield health plan, here are some of the additional benefits and services that may be included with your enrollment.
No matter where you are, you can manage your personal health care information with myWellmark. Available at myWellmark.com or on-the-go with the myWellmark mobile app Opens New Window, you can get in-depth claims information, your digital Explanation of Benefits (EOB), details about your specific coverage, and much more. All the information you need is right at your fingertips — and completely secure.

Rx Savings Advisor
When it comes to ever-rising drug prices, we’ve got your back with the Rx Savings Advisor. As long as prescription drug coverage is included with your Wellmark health insurance plan, you can sign up with CVS Caremark® through your myWellmark account. Once you're signed up, you’ll be automatically notified when you’re taking a medication that has a savings opportunity of $10 or more. Savings opportunities can include switching from a 30- to 90-day supply, making a therapeutic substitution, or switching from retail pharmacy to mail order. The best part? It’s all automatic. You just present the savings opportunities to your provider and discuss the best option for you.
Blue Distinction Centers
You and your family deserve the best, especially when it comes to receiving specialized care like surgery or a transplant. That’s why we offer Blue Distinction® Centers (BDCs) in 11 areas of specialty care that have a proven history of delivering exceptional care and results. Overall, patients who use BDCs experience fewer complications, lower re-admission rates and higher survival rates. You can see if facilities near you have the BDC designation by logging in to myWellmark. There may also be BDC requirements specific to your plan, so talk to your doctor, review your coverage manual, and check your plan details.
Our member magazine hits your mailbox once a year, keeping you informed on health plan updates and delivering the latest in health and wellness information.

Doctor On Demand®
Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to get out of bed when you felt sick? As long as Doctor On Demand is covered by your health insurance benefits, you can use it to see a board-certified doctor from anywhere using your smartphone, tablet or computer. It only takes a few minutes to be seen and treated for the most common conditions. Plus, you can get prescription medication if needed or set up a mental health visit with a therapist or psychiatrist.

Pregnancy Support program
If you’re a mom-to-be, you’re probably getting all sorts of advice — from your doctors, family members, and friends. You can get information that you can depend on from Wellmark’s Pregnancy Support program. The program provides trusted and helpful online resources for every stage of pregnancy and beyond and helps connect you with an Advanced Care nurse if you’re at a higher risk for complications.
