INCENTIVE GIFT CARDS FOR TEXAS HEALTH STEPS CHECKUPS

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) wants to encourage children and teenagers who are STAR members to visit their primary care provider (PCP) regularly. That’s why we offer incentive gift cards to qualifying members.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas offers a $50 gift card for STAR members from birth to age 12 to complete their Texas Health Steps checkups. You can get the $50 gift card by doing the following: ‬

  • Take your baby to the doctor at least six times from birth through 15 months old.‬‬‬‬
  • Take children ages 2 through 12 to get a yearly Texas Health Steps checkup by the end of the calendar year.‬‬‬‬

If your child is a new member, you must complete the checkup within 90 days of joining the plan. Existing members should complete checkups at least annually. Timely checkups by your primary care physician (PCP) are important to maintain overall health. To receive the gift card, your child must be a member of the plan at the time of the checkup(s) and at the time of the incentive.
