Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma (BCBSOK) is pleased to announce an additional resource is now available for the Special Beginnings®’ program. All expectant members who have this maternity program as part of their health plan have access to a new online resource beginning in late July 2010.

Located on Blue Access for MembersSM, a secure member website, the online resource offers:

  • Pregnancy calendar to help keep track of the pregnancy and what to expect in each trimester
  • A pregnancy due date calculator
  • Videos about pregnancy and childbirth with professionals such as clinical psychologists and registered nurses (Available at the end of July.)
  • Educational articles
  • Level of support your patients anticipate to receive during Special Beginnings program participation

Additional features will be added later this year.

The Special Beginnings maternity program can help guide your patients through their pregnancy and postpartum care. This confidential program provides support and education, pregnancy risk factor identification and ongoing communication/monitoring from early pregnancy until six weeks after delivery. Our staff can help your patients better understand and manage their pregnancies and help coordinate their care with you.

Help your patients get off to a healthy start! Encourage them to enroll in the maternity program by calling (888) 421-7781, 8 a.m. – 6:30 p.m., CT. Members should enroll in the program before 12 weeks of gestation but are accepted until week 34 of their pregnancy.
