Healthy Lifestyle Management Program
Healthy Living is a health program geared toward Members who want to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Lasting success isn’t achieved through short-term changes. It’s achieved through a lifestyle change that includes healthy eating, exercise, reducing stress, and paying attention to your mental health.
Healthy Living provides Members with the following information and resources:
- Information about weight management, healthy eating habits, and ways to stay active
- Decision-making tools to use in your home and discuss with your Provider
- Assistance from a Community First Care Manager for Members with severe health concerns
- A list of community resources offering nutrition, exercise, and mental health programs
- Monthly general health education, such as sun exposure and pool safety
Healthy Living is designed to help you understand how to incorporate healthy habits into your everyday life that can last a lifetime, thus reducing hospitalization or emergency room visits and improving your quality of life.
