Interventions and Reminders

We encourage our members to play an active role in their health care and take the time to get the recommended preventive screenings.

Independence Blue Cross (IBC) sends members periodic reminders about important health screenings, such as:

  • Chlamydia screening
  • cholesterol screening
  • colorectal screening
  • immunizations
  • mammography screening
  • osteoporosis
  • Pap tests

To educate members, we developed a one-page, at-a-glance tool to assist health care providers in reminding and educating their patients, our members, about recommended cancer screenings. IBC’s cancer screening flyer provides recommendations for colorectal, prostate, cervical, and breast cancer for men and women at average risk.

Our preventive health information is adapted from several nationally recognized health resources and is routinely updated to help keep our members informed and in good health.
