Spring 2019

Community Events

New Member Orientations help members understand how they can get the most out of their health plan.

Allwell from Superior HealthPlan began hosting New Member Orientation meetings in January 2019 to help Allwell members learn more about their plan benefits and services, and to get their questions answered directly from health plan staff. Members are also given an overview of available plan materials and resources, including the new member welcome kit, website, member ID card, pharmacy network and over-the-counter (OTC) benefits.

New Member Orientations will continue throughout the year. Be sure to keep an eye out for an event near you. If, at any time, you have questions about your Allwell plan, call Member Services at 1-844-796-6811 (HMO) or 1-877-935-8023 (HMO SNP) (TTY: 711).

Brushing Up On Technique

Since there are various techniques for brushing your teeth, it’s a good idea to ask your dentist which one to use. Here are a few tips to help you develop a good brushing routine:

  • Brush twice a day. Brush your teeth at least twice a day—in the morning and before bed.
  • Fluoridated toothpaste. Use a toothpaste with fluoride to help prevent tooth decay.
  • Concentrate on brushing all surfaces. Use a gentle touch – it doesn’t take much pressure to remove the plaque from your teeth, and a vigorous scrubbing could irritate your gums.
  • Brush your gums. Hold your toothbrush at a slight angle toward the gums when brushing along the gum line.
  • Brush your tongue. Brushing your tongue gently can helpremove bacteria that causes bad breath.
