Incentive Gift Cards for Texas Health Steps Checkups

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

BCBSTX offers a $50 gift card for STAR members from birth through 15 months and ages 2 through 6 for completing 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 6 to get a yearly Texas Health Steps checkup by the end of the calendar year or within 90 days of joining the plan.‬‬‬‬

To get the gift card, members must be active on the plan at the time of the checkup, and checkups must be completed by an in-network PCP (Primary Care Provider). Gift card awards are based on claims your doctor will send to BCBSTX after the checkup is completed. Once your doctor sends BCBSTX the claim, it could take up to two months for you to get the gift card.
