Health and wellness perks

Nutrition counseling

Ditch the diets and learn how to eat right for life by visiting a food and nutrition expert (or your physician). These experts are called registered dietitians, and your Independence Blue Cross health insurance covers up to six visits a year at no cost to you.*

Eat better, feel better

With better nutrition, your body functions better and has a greater ability to heal and strengthen itself. And one of the things you may notice as a result of your healthier food choices is weight loss.

Besides giving you a boost of self-esteem, shedding even a few pounds can also offer you the following benefits:

  • Increased energy level
  • Lower cholesterol levels
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Decreased risk of heart disease and stroke
