Our approach to health management delivers a comprehensive, effective member experience that addresses the entire health continuum, from complex conditions to lifelong wellness. Components include:
Holistic Health Management
This clinical model proactively targets members dealing with significant health challenges. A care team, led by a health advisor, collaborates to manage high-cost, high-complexity members, regardless of condition.1
State-of-the-art algorithms help health advisors deliver interventions that can have the greatest impact on health outcomes and cost of care.
Personalized communications remind members of missed appointments, tests and prescription refills and emphasize the importance of preventive screenings and immunizations.
Evidence-based guidelines help prevent misuse and overuse across the full spectrum of health care costs: inpatient services, outpatient services and specialty drug prior authorization.
Professionally certified coaches counsel employees on health and lifestyle issues, by phone or secure messaging. Examples of coaching topics include:
- Stress management
- Physical activity, nutrition and weight management
- Tobacco cessation
- Blood pressure, cholesterol and other chronic conditions
Employers can reward their employees for making smarter choices about their health. Our incentives programs increase healthy behaviors, can be integrated into an employer’s medical plan design, and reduce their role in administering the program. It also offers members an easy-to-use experience through our Well onTarget® portal.
The Fitness Program offers a flexible option to get in shape and stay active. Members choose from a nationwide network of fitness centers they can use whether at home or on the road. Membership is month to month with no long-term contract. The program also offers access to discounts through a nationwide Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) network of 40,000 health and well-being providers such as massage therapists, personal trainers and nutrition counselors.3
