Health & Wellness

COMMITTED TO YOUR HEALTH

Our philosophy toward wellness is reflected in our name: We believe the health of our members comes first. That means we don’t just help members get the care they need when they are sick – we help them stay healthy in the first place.

Our comprehensive wellness programs meet individuals where they are. We provide the support, education, motivation, and targeted interventions they need to break unhealthy habits, develop healthy ones, or manage new or ongoing conditions. 

The goals?

  • Healthier, happier members.
  • A more productive workforce with fewer illness-related absences. 
  • The prospect of lower long-term healthcare costs for everyone.

WELLNESS WORKS:
MANAGING MAJOR HEALTH RISKS

Our most comprehensive wellness program takes a hands-on approach to assisting members with one or more major health risks. Using high-tech data analysis and high-touch personal interaction, we help members take ownership of their healthcare needs and encourage them to make decisions to live healthier lives.

Our team of registered nurses coaches each targeted member to improve health and lower long-term healthcare costs. This program can include:

  • Health education and tips. Personalized mailings with advice, warnings and appointment reminders.
  • One-on-one coaching. Clinical experts provide high-risk individuals with individualized assistance and education.
  • Individual treatment plans. Coaches develop a personalized care plan to help the member manage his or her chronic conditions. This may include a series of required doctor visits, screenings, an exercise program, and/or dietary modifications.

FEATURED WELLNESS PARTNER

Tria Health

Our partnership with Tria Health, a medication therapy management program, helps participants manage their medications safely, affordably and effectively, reducing healthcare costs, and improving overall health.

Tria’s pharmacists offer personal guidance to members on prescriptions and over-the-counter meds, monitor prescription records for possible drug interactions or duplicate therapies, and look for opportunities to suggest less expensive but equally effective medications.

The pharmacists also consult directly with members managing chronic conditions with multiple medications, helping them take a comprehensive approach to medication and healthcare, and ensuring that high-risk conditions are managed properly.

Additional Programs: Tria also supports a Smoking Cessation program, a three-month program that provides education, support, and structure for those trying to kick the habit.
