About Bright Health's Preventive Healthcare Services in Alabama.

Bright Health Individual and Family health insurance plans in Alabama include no out-of-pocket cost preventive care to stave off illness and keep you happy and healthy.
It’s not often you can get something for nothing. We believe that it’s cheaper to prevent illness than to treat it, so Bright Health and our Care Partner, Brookwood Baptist Health, added wellness visits, immunizations, screenings, and other preventive services to plans sold on the state or federal Health Insurance Marketplace.

Why is Preventive Healthcare so Important?

Taking the time to get screenings and take care of your health can help you stay healthier in the long run. So preventive care can save you time and money, but most importantly, maintain your health for years to come.

Find a Doctor

Who can be your PCP?

Your PCP can be whoever you consider your “home-base” for your health. This can be your family practice doctor, a physician’s assistant (PA), nurse practitioner (NP), OB/GYN, or a pediatrician for children. If you don’t already have a PCP.

If you have any other questions about how to get preventive care, contact our Member Services Team, or visit the Bright Health’s Member Hub.

As a reminder, you have access to any provider in the Bright Health network. You’re not required to choose a PCP, but we do encourage you to pick one to be your healthcare quarterback.
