Preventive Care Guidelines
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana (BCBSMT) publishes and disseminates evidence-derived Preventive Care Guidelines based upon the recommendations of recognized sources such as professional medical associations, specialty societies, professional consensus panels, national task forces, and governmental entities. The guidelines are designed to improve physician/practitioner awareness of (and compliance with) effective clinical preventive care, to improve patient education and to increase the percentage of members who receive recommended clinical preventive care services.
The guidelines do not cover all possible circumstances, but should be considered a summary of basic preventive services for these populations:
- Children from birth to 17 years
- Adults 18 years and older
- Adults 65 years and older
These wellness resources for BCBSMT members can help your patients take a more active role in matters concerning their health and well-being.
