Health and wellness
Living a healthy life starts with taking good care of yourself. And keeping your life in step with good health doesn't have to be tricky. Explore the wide range of resources, support, and services available to our Medicare Advantage members in 2024.
Dental, vision, and hearing
Maintaining oral, vision, and hearing health is essential to staying healthy. That's why dental, vision, and hearing benefits are built into all our AmeriHealth plans — at NO additional premium.
Taking care of your oral health can help detect and manage problems that could otherwise lead to more serious health issues down the road. Taking care of your vision can help prevent falls and maintaining good hearing can reduce your risk of social isolation and dementia.
All members receive access to benefits such as:
- $0 in-network copay for oral exam and teeth cleanings once every six months when provided by a Dominion Medicare Dental Network provider
- Annual allowance for comprehensive dental services
- $0 in-network copay for one routine eye exam every year when provided by a Davis Vision provider
- One pair of eyeglasses (frames and lenses) or contact lenses per year, up to the covered allowance amount, when purchased from Visionworks® or a Davis Vision provider
- $0 in-network copay for one routine hearing exam every year when provided by a TruHearing® provider
- Unlimited hearing aid fitting and evaluations every year — at no cost through TruHearing
Learn more about routine dental, vision, and hearing coverage by reviewing your 2024 Evidence of Coverage (EOC) and our AmeriHealth Medicare PPO dental/vision/hearing guide.
Visit our Find a doctor, dentist, or pharmacy page to find a participating Dominion Medicare Dental Network dentist, Davis Vision provider, or TruHearing provider.
Primary care provider
Primary care is an important part of staying healthy. A primary care provider (PCP) delivers basic medical care and regular checkups, oversees coordination of other health care services, and is the first to treat any health problems that arise. Your PCP will get to know your health history and medical issues. And they can serve as your key partner in taking care of your health.
Though it isn't required, you may want to select a plan physician as your PCP, as you'll pay less by selecting an in-network provider or specialist. Regardless of whether you choose a PCP or not, you don't need a referral to visit a specialist.
To find in-network doctors, hospitals, and other health care centers use our online Find a Provider tool.
Living a healthy life starts with taking good care of yourself. By scheduling regular checkups and health screenings, you're more likely to identify and treat a potential issue before it becomes a problem.
AmeriHealth Medicare Advantage plans cover many preventive services and screenings at no cost to you, including:
- Annual wellness visit
- Breast cancer screening
- Colorectal cancer screening
- Diabetic testing
- Routine/Diabetic eye exam

Members have 24/7/365 access to a Registered Nurse Health Coach at no added cost. A Health Coach can work with you to manage a chronic condition, assist you with a complex health problem, or help you address everyday physical and mental health issues. Health Coaches and Case Managers are specialized registered nurses and licensed social workers.
AmeriHealth offers free, personalized services of a Registered Nurse Health Coach and Case Manager who will listen to your health concerns and work with you to set, achieve, and maintain your health goals. Health Coaches and Case Managers provide you with an added level of support to help you stay healthy, manage your chronic condition(s), identify emerging risks, follow your doctors' treatment plan, and navigate your health journey. Health Coaches and Case Managers may also refer members to an Independence Social Worker for assistance with community resources.

Enhanced Disease Management services
Health Coach services provide extra help to eligible members with chronic health conditions. You may be referred to a Health Coach by your treating physician, or a Health Coach may call you to assess your overall health and well-being.
You have the right to opt in or opt out of these services. Simply advise your Health Coach or case manager at any time if you wish to end your relationship with them. You may also call the number on the back of your member ID card and ask that you not be contacted by a Health Coach or behavioral health case manager in the future.
