Updates announced for in-network diagnostic A1C diabetes testing

As of September 1, Consumer Directed HealthSelect and HealthSelect participants will no longer need to meet their annual deductible before in-network diagnostic A1C testing for diabetes is covered.

Participants will still pay coinsurance for diagnostic testing. In-network preventive A1C testing will still be covered at no cost to participants.

Because there is no in-network deductible for HealthSelect of Texas and HealthSelect Out-of-State, there is no change to these plans.

All HealthSelect medical plans, including Consumer Directed HealthSelect, cover preventive care from in-network providers at no cost to participants. This includes:

  • General health screenings
  • Immunizations
  • Health counseling
  • Certain cancer screenings
  • Prevention-related screenings for pregnant women
  • Some age- and gender-specific screenings

For more information

For more information about HealthSelect medical benefits or for help finding in-network providers, encourage participants to visit or call a BCBSTX toll-free at (800) 252-8039 (TTY: 711), Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Saturday, 7 a. m. – 3 p.m. CT.
