Fall 2021 HealthBeat

Keys To A Healthy Fall

It is that time of the year, when the leaves change colors, we carve pumpkins, and we It is also a very important time to ensure that certain preventative health visits are completed. Please see below for a few ways in which you and your family can stay healthy this Fall.

Annual Well Child Checks and Immunizations for Back to School

The State of Maryland’s well child and immunization requirements remain in effect for the 2021 – 2022 school year. All students are required to be compliant with immunizations whether they return to school in person or are taught in a virtual classroom online. Please make sure your children are up-to-date with all required preventative care, such as needed immunizations, by scheduling an appointment with your child’s Primary Care Provider (PCP).

Get the COVID-19 Vaccine

The COVID-19 vaccine is available to individuals ages 12 and older, and can help protect yourself, your family, and your friends from COVID-19. If you have any questions about the vaccine, let us help you schedule an appointment with your Primary Care Provider, so that you may ask these important questions to your doctor.

I am ready to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Where can I be vaccinated? Please call us today at 1-888-524-1999 and our Customer Service team will assist you with scheduling a COVID-19 vaccine appointment. You may also visit the State’s online website at https://coronavirus.maryland.gov/pages/vaccine to locate a vaccination site, or you may call the COVID-19 Vaccination Support Center at 1-855-MD-GOVAX (1-855-634-6829). The support center is available seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The annual flu vaccine is recommended for anyone ages 6 months or older. The flu vaccination can provide important protection, such as reducing flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations and deaths.

Update: Opioid Pain Medication

Starting November 1, 2021 Jai Medical Systems would like to announce that for the safety of our members opioid pain medications (like Oxycodone or Morphine) will be limited to no more than a 14-day supply at a time after the first initial 7-day fill. Prior authorization will be required before filling for more than a 14-day supply.

Members who are currently receiving an opioid for more than a 14-day supply within the last 90 days, will continue to receive their current medications without a new prior authorization. If you go 90 days without filling for an opioid medication, this approval will expire, and you will need prior approval before filling for greater than a 14-day supply after the initial 7-day supply.


Well Child Visits: What to Expect

It is important that your child receive regular “Well Child” checkups with your Pediatric Primary Care Provider (PCP). The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all parents take their children to at least 12 check-ups during the first three years of life. During a well child visit, your child’s PCP will review your child’s health, aspects of their development, and provide any necessary vaccines. Your PCP may also screen your child for health problems; either through blood work or by asking health-related questions. These visits are also a good opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have related to your child’s health and development. Your child’s PCP will develop and recommend a schedule for your child’s healthcare. Well Child visits are recommended at the following ages:

  • 3 to 5 days old.
  • By 1 month.
  • 2 months.
  • 4 months.
  • 6 months.
  • 9 months.
  • 1 year.
  • 15 months.
  • 18 months.
  • 2 years.
  • 30 months.
  • 3 years.

After age 3, Well Child visits are usually scheduled once a year.

If you are in need of an appointment for your child or transportation assistance for your child’s appointment, please contact our Customer Service Department today at 1-888-JAI-1999.
