Due to the ongoing challenges some members are facing in scheduling and keeping appointments with their Providers, extensions are available by calling the HelpLine.  This ensures that our members continue to have access to their much-needed incentives. We will continue to evaluate this as needed. We understand that not all areas of the country are experiencing healthcare system challenges, so we encourage members to call their doctor to determine if they should keep their scheduled appointment.
