Starting January 1, precertification will not be required; services will be subject to a $75 copay after meeting the deductible for all in network services and 40% coinsurance after meeting the deductible for all out of network services.
- LabCorp will now be a participating lab provider in 2019. Laboratory services can be performed at either Quest or LabCorp and be considered in-network.
Reminder: Chiropractic care does require periodic medical review to determine if ongoing therapy is appropriate.
FCPS subscribers (the employee enrolled as the primary cardholder) participating in the Aetna/Innovation (AIH) health insurance plan will have an opportunity to earn a $100 wellness incentive by completing their online health assessment (HA) between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019.
An HA is a questionnaire related to different aspects of general health and well-being that is easy to complete in about 15-20 minutes. It provides a snapshot of your current health status and includes a wellness score so you can become familiar with potential health risks and receive strategies to help reduce them. Your individualized health report may also include information on how to obtain health coaching and/or receive other health or wellness programs that are offered through AIH.
The HA is strictly confidential and only AIH receives your information. Your health related information is not shared with FCPS in compliance with state and federal privacy laws. For 2019, the incentive is only available to subscribers.
For more details on how to obtain your wellness incentive and directions on how to complete your HA go to the FAQs.
If you're ready to take your HA, be sure to read the step-by-step instructions before you begin.
