Color Me Healthy!
So you checked your annual Healthy You! wellness visit off your list, all done right?! Not exactly! Depending on the range of your health numbers identified at your Healthy You! visit you may have access to our Color Me Healthy! benefit at no out-of-pocket cost to you!
Color Me Healthy! is a health management benefit available to Members with low to high risk factors for high blood pressure, high cholesterol and/or high blood sugar. The goal of the benefit is to give you access to additional doctor’s visits (up to four are available based on individual risk levels), resources and tools to best manage your chronic conditions, lower your risks, improve your health and ultimately empower you along your personal health journey.
The Color Me Healthy! benefit is a proactive approach to health. It’s about addressing your health numbers and conditions now, that if left unchecked could lead to bad health outcomes and higher healthcare costs in the future.
It’s important to know that metabolic conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood sugar can develop over time and often don’t present with warning signs or symptoms. That’s why it's crucial to have your annual Healthy You! wellness visit each year, have open dialogue with your physician about your health numbers and work your wellness plan to improve health numbers with elevated risks.
Leading a healthy lifestyle can help prevent and manage metabolic conditions. Tips for leading a healthy lifestyle include:
Getting enough physical activity
Eating a healthy diet
Maintaining a healthy weight
Getting enough sleep
