Personal Health Assessment (PHA) “To catch the reader's attention, place an Employees can earn $100 on a debit card by completing a PHA between 1/1/15 and 3/31/15. interesting sentence or quote from the story here.” The health assessment is an advanced health profiling/risk assessment tool that scores the individual’s health status, calculates risk levels, and provides recommendations for health improvement and behavior change. The health assessment analyzes different health risk factors that affect an individual’s health and well-being. These factors fall into personal health status and lifestyle choices and habits. At the end of the assessment the member will view a results summary screen – with participant’s score, personalized steps to improve health, and risk and condition reports. The objective of the results summary is to guide you to the appropriate program and resource to improve health. Digital Health Assistant Exercise and Nutrition If your primary care physician is not available, consider Sentara MDLIVE prior to the Urgent Care Center or the Emergency Department for non-emergent matters. When you need to connect with a physician, call 1-866-648-3638. From there, you can choose to connect to a physician via phone right away, or you can request a video visit online. Employees can earn $50 for completing the Exercise Assistant and $50 for the Nutrition Assistant for a total of $100. This incentive would also be applied to a debit card and earned anytime through 10/31/15. The Digital Health Assistant (DHA) is a research-based, comprehensive, engaging behavior-change application. The DHA provides an online experience designed to emulate what happens in a 1:1 telephonic or face-to-face coaching session. Users interacting with the DHA select long-term goals that are suggested for them based on clinical guidelines. Users then create a weekly plan comprised of short-term goals or activities. Tracking against short- and long-term goals is a critical component of the DHA, and users are encouraged and reminded to come back to the DHA on a weekly basis to update their plan. The focus of the DHA is on helping the user to take action. Individuals are also presented with content to promote learning about risks and conditions. If your doctor’s office is closed, call the Care Coordination Program/ After Hours Nurse Advice Line at 1-877-817-3037. This free call is your link to a licensed nurse who can assist you in determining your immediate next steps for care. If this call recommends seeking care other than your doctor’s office when it re-opens, then consider steps 3 and 4. Caption describing picture or graphic. Urgent Care Centers may meet your needs and are usually a less expensive and faster option for treatment than a hospital Emergency Department. These facilities are usually open on evenings, weekends, and holidays when your doctor’s office may be closed. Hospital Emergency Departments are the most expensive option and often take longer than other treatment options in non-life threatening situations. If you choose to go to an Emergency Department, knowing which hospitals participate with Optima Health can save you money.

The listing below provides definitions for some commonly used terms regarding health insurance. This listing includes many commonly used health coverage terms, but is not a full list. A full list can be found at In-Network Provider (Participating Provider): Any physician, hospital, pharmacy, laboratory or other diagnostic center under contract with the health plan to provide services to members at a specified cost. http://www.optimahealth.com/healthinsurance101/Pages/Glossary.aspx Allowed Amount: The maximum amount on which payment is based for covered healthcare services. This may be called “eligible expense,” “payment allowance" or "negotiated rate." Out-of-Pocket Maximum (OOP max or MOOP): The maximum amount that an insured person will have to pay for covered expenses during the plan year. Plan Year: January 1st through December 31st Benefit Period: Period for application of deductibles, after which time a deductible must again be satisfied. Coinsurance: Form of cost sharing between the member and the insurance company. An insured individual pays a percentage of the cost of covered medical services, and the insurance company pays a percentage. For example, if your plan has a 20 percent coinsurance and the service costs $1000, you would pay $200. If the service was $200, you would pay $40. Pre-Authorization: The authorization required by an insurance company before the member is eligible to receive services. Preventive Care: Care received to help prevent or detect illness before it occurs, such as routine physicals, well child, annual gynecological exams, etc. Copayment: Set dollar amount a member pays for a service while the insurance company pays the remaining costs. For example, the general practitioner copayment for non-preventive services is $25 per visit. Deductible: A set dollar amount that a person must pay before the insurance company begins paying. Emergency Services: Services provided in connection with an unforeseen acute illness or injury requiring immediate medical attention. Family Deductible: A deductible which is satisfied by the combined expenses of all covered family members. For example, a program with a $200 individual deductible may limit a maximum of three deductibles ($600) for the family, regardless of the number of family members. Urgent Care: Care for an illness, injury, or condition serious enough that a reasonable person would seek care right away, but not so severe as to require emergency room care. Virtual Consult: The delivery of health-related services and information via telecommunications technologies, including telephones and personal computers. For example, MDLIVE is a service which provides a virtual appointment with a medical doctor, from the comfort of your home on your computer. The doctor may prescribe medication(s) if needed to treat a condition. Examples of appropriate concerns for a visit include fever, headaches, cold, flu, etc.
