Overview

Steward Health Choice Utah wants you and your family to live a healthy life by making smart, healthy choices.

Here are some services offered by us to make your life healthier and easier.

Health Risk Assessment

Every member of our health plan will receive and complete a Health Risk Assessment (HRA). HRAs help us coordinate and manage your health needs. You may be offered enrollment in a healthcare management program which is designed to help you stay healthy.

Case Management

Steward Health Choice Utah has a staff of nurses and healthcare professionals that may be assigned to help you and/or a family member get the healthcare you need. Our staff works closely with your primary care physician to manage your care and keep you healthy.

Child Health Evaluation and Care Program (CHEC)

The Child Health Evaluation and Care Program (CHEC) is Utah’s Medicaid Program for children from birth through age 20. Please note that well-child/CHEC services are not covered under the Non-Traditional plan.

Steward Health Choice Utah provides all CHEC services including well-child, shots, and exams. Children may need other types of care. Some of this care may be for physical, occupational, speech therapy, medical equipment, including wheelchairs or nurses in the home. Your doctor needs to call Steward Health Choice Utah for approval for these services before you can get them.

CHEC visits are also called well-child visits and include all screenings and services recommended for CHEC.

Family Planning

Steward Health Choice Utah covers family planning services. This service helps you plan when you want to have a baby or prevent pregnancy. Family planning services include information, treatment and counseling about birth control. You can get family planning services from any -primary Steward Health Choice Utah doctor or any Medicaid doctor without co-pay. You don’t need a referral.

There are no co-payments for Family Planning Services.

Pregnancy and Maternity Services

If you are pregnant, it is very important for you to keep your eligibility up to date. See your OB doctor as soon as you think you are pregnant. Also, notify your local DWS office as soon as you find out that you are pregnant.

Be sure to report the birth to your eligibility worker to make sure that your health coverage continues for you and your child. Call a Member Services Representative to arrange for a doctor for you and your baby. Be sure to follow up with your OB doctor for your check-up after your baby is born.

Pregnant women can register for our Stork Program and receive information and guidance from our maternity nurses to help them have a healthy pregnancy and obtain the community resources they need for their family.
