    How it works.

    If you or a family member is at risk for or living with HIV/AIDS, and are enrolled in JetBlue Medical, you can contact BlueCarpet to work with a nurse (confidentially) to understand the condition, sort out treatment options, find services and manage your everyday life.

    A BlueCarpet nurse will provide expert guidance and support by:

    • Helping you understand HIV/AIDS.
    • Finding specialists and making appointments for you.
    • Explaining the different treatment options available so you can choose what’s best.
    • Locating other services you may need, such as transportation, support groups, meals, mental health care and more.

    The BlueCarpet nurse you connect with will stay with you for the long-term as your dedicated advocate to support you throughout your care journey and help you manage living with HIV/AIDS.

    After the first call where you and your dedicated BlueCarpet nurse will discuss the ongoing medical condition you’re dealing with, you will earn $100 in Healthy Rewards.  The first call will consist of a review of your current health needs and any potential challenges you may be facing (in/with) your health. Your BlueCarpet nurse can help you stay committed with treatment paths in connection with a new diagnosis, or an ongoing health condition.

    Completion of the program is dependent on an individualized plan that you and your nurse will develop.  After completing a series of calls with the nurse, you will be eligible to earn an additional $200 in Healthy Rewards for completion of the program—that’s an additional $300 in Healthy Rewards that’s not subject to the annual limit on how much you can earn. (You’ll earn a total of $600 if both you and an enrolled adult dependent work with a BlueCarpet nurse.)
