Health & Wellness

Health & Wellness Overview

BCBSAZ Health Choice wants you and your family to live a healthy life by making smart, healthy choices.

Eating right, exercising, getting shots for your children and following your doctor’s advice are part of living a healthy life. When you adopt a healthy lifestyle, you become a more positive role model for other people in your community and in your family, particularly children. As a parent, your healthy choices will teach your children to make healthy choices starting at a young age.

Stay healthy this flu season. Get your flu shot at no cost!

The vaccine doesn’t just protect you – it protects your friends, family, and community from a potentially deadly virus. Even healthy people get the flu, and it can be serious.

Where can I get vaccinated?

  • Provider offices and clinics
  • Pharmacies (No appointment needed!)
  • Your local health departments
  • Urgent care clinics

Don’t wait. Schedule an appointment for your flu shot today. 

We are here to help you stay healthy!
Call Member Services at 1-800-322-8670 for help finding a provider or pharmacy giving flu shots near you.

Health Appraisal

If you are a new member of BCBSAZ Health Choice or if there has been a change to your health care (such as a hospitalization), one of our care coordinators will call you to ask you questions in order to assess your health. After the health appraisal, if the care coordinator finds a health risk that we can help you manage, you may be offered enrollment in a care management program which is designed to help you stay healthy.

If you are receiving services from a Behavioral Health Home, your care team there will help you complete these questions. 

Care Management and Disease Management

BCBSAZ Health Choice has a staff of nurses and health care professionals who may be assigned to help you and/or or a family member get the health care you need. Our staff works closely with you and your health care team.  This can include your primary care provider, specialist, and, behavioral health team. This is a service that we offer to help you better understand your health condition, medication, or any other services you may need to promote healthy living.
