Tips for Pregnancy

If you are pregnant or want to become pregnant, keep these things in mind:

  • Go before you show! Go to the doctor as soon as you think you are pregnant. It is important for you and your baby to see a doctor as early as possible. It will keep both of you healthy. It will also help your baby get off to a good start. It is even better to see a doctor before you are pregnant. This is so you can get your body ready for pregnancy.
  • Maintain healthy lifestyle habits. This includes exercising, eating balanced and healthy meals, and resting for 8-10 hours every night.
  • Do not use tobacco, alcohol or drugs now or while you’re pregnant.


Doctors and health organizations agree that breastfeeding is best. You may already know that breast milk is packed with the perfect mix of nutrients your baby needs. Did you know that it is also more than just food? Breast milk has special ingredients, like antibodies, that only you can provide. Breast pumps are helpful if you are breastfeeding and have to be away from your baby.

You take care of your health; we offer a way to earn reward dollars when you complete certain healthy behaviors.


  • Step 1: Complete a healthy activity.
  • Step 2: Reward dollars will be put on your Rewards Card after we receive the claim for your healthy activity. 
  • Step 3: If it's your first reward, a card will be mailed to you.

For a complete list of items you can buy, log in to your member account. Remember, this card is not a credit card. It already has funds on it. Keep the card after you use it. As you earn more rewards, they will be added to this card. 


To check your balance, log in to your member account.

The card cannot be used to buy alcohol, cigarettes, tobacco, firearms or ammunition.  All rewards expire one year (365 days) from the date the reward is added to your card.  If you do not use or earn more rewards for 12 months, your card will close.  When your card closes, you will lose any remaining balance.  Your card expires 60 days after your coverage terminates.

Get medical advice, a diagnosis or a prescription for non-emergency issues by phone or video.

Use telehealth when you need it, or make an appointment for a time that works with your schedule.
