Having high blood pressure significantly increases your risk for serious health conditions, such as heart attack, stroke, heart failure and kidney disease. The best way to know if you have high blood pressure is to visit your doctor and have your numbers checked on a regular basis.
The Hypertension Management Program can help FEP Blue Focus members monitor their blood pressure at home with a blood pressure monitor at no out-of-pocket cost.* Eligible Standard and Basic Option members can get one as well.
Here’s how it works: After we receive a claim from your provider noting you have hypertension, we’ll send you a letter with instructions on how to get your blood pressure monitor.
Having a blood pressure monitor at home gives you the convenience to check your blood pressure as often as your doctor recommends and easily track your numbers. You’re eligible to receive a new blood pressure monitor every two years.
As a member, you also have access to a variety of WebMD tools and resources that help you manage, monitor and understand your condition. These include:
Knowing your numbers is the first step. Visit your doctor and have your blood pressure checked. We can help you find a Preferred provider in your area if you need one.
*You must be the contract holder or spouse, 18 or older, on an FEP Blue Focus Plan to be eligible for the Hypertension Management Program.
