2020 Healthy Miami Premium Discount Program Updates

Through Miami’s Premium Discount Program (PDP), participants who complete certain preventive health steps, can earn a discount on their future health insurance premiums. Relative to previous years, some details of the PDP have changed for this year in response to COVID-19. The following is a revised listing of PDP steps to fulfill the 2020 campaign:

Expanded Options for PCP Wellness Visits for the PDP
A normal preventive office visit, called a well visit, is covered at 100% by the health plan. For 2020, Miami will also count wellness and routine visits at non-traditional locations for the PCP wellness visit step for the PDP. These non-traditional locations for routine visits include “Anthem’s LiveHealth Online” telehealth and “The Little Clinic” at local Kroger stores. 

Preventive Cancer Screenings Waived
For the 2020 PDP campaign year, participants who are ordinarily due to complete a cancer screening step will receive an award for that screening (e.g. colon, breast, and cervical cancer) automatically in their Healthy Miami Account by July 31, 2020. You can still pursue those services, if you choose, and the health plan still provides 100% coverage for routine and preventive services.
