Onsite clinic annual wellness visits

All 12 of our onsite clinic locations are open and providing team members with vaccinations, biometric screenings, first aid, care for illnesses like cold, flu, and ear, eye or sinus infections. Your onsite clinic will also complete OSHA testing and treatment for injuries on duty.

In addition to these services, you can now complete a free annual wellness visit at your onsite clinic. These visits are your opportunity to check in with a health care provider to discuss any exams and preventive care you may need, check your vital signs, get a biometric screening, and make sure your eyes, ears, and skin are all doing well. Plus, team members enrolled in the Core, Standard, Value, or PPO 80/90/100 medical options will earn a $100 Wellness Reward by completing their annual wellness visit. Visit the onsite clinic page to find a clinic near you.

Maximize your benefits by staying in-network

You have the option of using in-network or out-of-network doctors and facilities each time you need treatment. But the best way to avoid higher costs for care is to use doctors, labs, urgent care centers, medical facilities and hospitals that participate in your network. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas (BCBS) and United Healthcare (UHC) have pre-negotiated rates with in-network providers and hold them to high standards of quality. Any time you visit an out-of-network provider, keep in mind they may bill you for the balance of their fees not covered by your plan (also known as balance billing). You may be responsible for this amount, in addition to what you pay as part of your out-of-network deductible and coinsurance.

Doctors who say they “accept” your coverage aren’t necessarily in-network with your plan so you should always ask if they are in-network or call the number on the back of your medical ID card and ask. You can also log onto the BCBS or UHC online portals via the contacts page to see a list of in-network providers.


Skip the waiting room with Doctor on Demand

When you need to see a doctor, skip the waiting room with Doctor on Demand to see a medical doctor face-to-face, right away, over live video – right from your mobile device or computer. Download the Doctor on Demand app from the App Store / Google Play or text: American to 68398. Remember to enter your medical plan information when registering. Team members enrolled in the Standard, Value or PPO 80/90/100 plans will pay a $20 copay per visit; those enrolled in Core will pay the full cost until the deductible has been met, then 20% coinsurance.
