You can help! Here’s what you can do to make Healthfirst NJ even better:
  • Visit your Primary Doctor at least once a year for a checkup. Or, make sure your Medicare member loved one visits their Primary Doctor once a year for a checkup.
  • Be sure to read the materials we send you. If you receive a survey from us, please answer it and send it back.
  • Get your health tests, screenings, and vaccines, such as breast or colon cancer screenings, bone density screening, lung/asthma tests, eye tests, annual flu vaccine, and dental exams. Please encourage your family members to do the same.
  • Call Member Services if you have any questions or comments. We are here to help you and your loved ones.
