Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (BCBSND) would like to remind providers that Healthy Steps members can receive well-child visits.

Healthy Steps members have the following well-child visit benefits, with insurance paying for 100 percent of the allowed charge:

  • Birth to 12 months old – Seven visits
  • 13 months old to 35 months old – Four visits
  • 36 months old to 72 months old – One visit per benefit period
  • 6 years and older – One visit per benefit period for preventive screening services (including sports and school physicals)

The Healthy Steps program covers North Dakota children 18 years old and younger who do not have other health insurance coverage, do not qualify for Medicaid benefits and live in families with qualifying incomes.

Providers with questions about Healthy Steps benefits can contact BCBSND Provider Services at 1-800-368-2312.
