Physical Well-Being

Why does a focus on physical well-being matter?

Preventive exams, such as annual wellness exams, screening tests, dental and vision exams help you and your provider prevent illnesses before they cause you symptoms or problems. The frequency for each exam varies by age and gender. These preventive exams are an important opportunity to discuss current health concerns, health history and any questions you may have. This is a time to assess your current health and make lifestyle choices about drinking, smoking, nutrition or physical activity. See the LiveWELL Health Plan Preventive Care Guide for more information.

Prevention Action Plan

Together, with your health coach, develop a personalized Prevention Action Plan based on your age, gender and family history. Then, brainstorm and set a 2020 preventive health goal.

Overview:

  • Teammates will have at least two telephonic calls with a health coach, approximately 20–25 minutes each, at least 4 weeks apart
  • Teammates will schedule their first session through the LiveWELL Total Health Portal; the second session will be scheduled at the end of the first session
  • For relationship building and care continuity, the goal is for both sessions to be facilitated by the same health coach
  • Teammates will develop a goal during the first call. Teammates will demonstrate forward progress made related to the goal during their second call in order to earn the Physical Well-Being Incentive
  • The health coach will complete documentation after the call and will share electronically with the teammate, pertinent health education resources

Go to the LiveWELL Total Health Portal to schedule your first session with a health coach. Both calls must be completed by October 12th (with a 4-week break between calls requirement; first call must be completed by September 14th).  

Care Management Program

LiveWELL-recommended Care Management programs offer uniquely proactive health care education and mentoring for those with specific health conditions and to prevent serious health issues.

Personal Care Management (PCM) and Diabetes Care Management are unique proactive health care programs that help educate and mentor individuals who may show early signs of, or be at risk for, developing serious health issues, such as diabetes, uncontrolled blood pressure, uncontrolled asthma, COPD, or multiple co-morbidities. This program is administered by MedCost Benefit Services and is a free benefit available to teammates and their dependents covered under one of the LiveWELL Health Plans.

More than 80 percent of participants in the PCM program experience positive health changes that result in fewer days missed from work and fewer health complications. If you are identified through MedCost as someone who will benefit from one-on-one interaction with a MedCost PCM nurse health coach, you will receive:

  • Personal nurse health coaching and mentoring via scheduled phone calls
  • Customized strategies to improve overall health and well being
  • Care plans designed to meet your individual needs
  • Educational materials and informative tools tailored to your specific needs
  • Ongoing education

Diabetes Care Management (DCM) is a health care program for teammates who have been diagnosed with diabetes. The program provides nurse coaches for medically necessary diabetes outpatient self-management training and educational services.

Health professionals agree that nutrition education is one of the first treatments that individuals should receive to prevent or improve conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and hypertension.

Teammates and family members who are enrolled in one of the LiveWELL Health Plans may receive free visits with an Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN). Appointments are available to participants who have an appropriate physician’s referral for Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT). MNT is only available at select locations.

Up to six visits may be covered (no charge) in a benefit year to provide appropriate guidance and education for diet-related conditions or risk factors, including but not limited to:

  • Pre-Diabetes
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • High Cholesterol
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Renal or Kidney

Medical Nutrition Therapy provided by an RDN includes:

  • Review of what you eat, your eating habits and diet-related conditions
  • Thorough review of your nutritional health
  • Personalized nutrition treatment plan
  • Review of risk factors listed above

The first visit with the RDN typically lasts one hour. After the first session, the RDN will schedule follow-up appointments to check on your progress and see if changes are needed in your nutrition goals and treatment plan.

How to Get a Referral

  • Contact the Dietitians’ office of your choice for guidance in securing the referral; or
  • Talk to your physician about a referral

Note that not all Nutrition and Diabetes services are covered at 100%. Please confirm coverage with your caregiver and MedCost prior to service.
