5 ways to make the most of your health and wellness benefits

Most of us are no stranger to wellness programs. Many employers offer them to support employees and their family members with the goal of improving overall health and well-being. Encouraging adopting a healthy lifestyle continues when you enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan. As an Aspire Health Plan member, we offer additional health and wellness benefits to help support your overall well-being. These include coaching, education, screenings, and a fitness benefit. What can you do to make the most of your health and wellness benefits? We have a few ideas.

1. Sign up for Aspire Rewards.

This program rewards you for getting your preventive screenings. If you are new to Aspire Rewards, learn more here. If you have any questions, give Member Services at (855) 570-1600. TTY users call 711. They will be able to tell you which activities will earn rewards. In 2021, you’ll be able to earn over the counter (OTC) supplies by taking healthy actions including

  • Your Annual Wellness Visit or Health at Home visit
  • Breast cancer screening
  • Diabetes eye exam

2. Join us at our Community Connections classes.

We encourage you to bring a friend and make a friend. Each month, we update our website with a list of classes on topics to help you manage your health and well-being while also connecting with others in our community. You can check our website or our Facebook page for upcoming events.

3. Use your fitness benefit.

As an Aspire Health Plan member, you can enroll in the Silver&Fit® exercise and healthy aging program. After you pay your annual member fee, you have access to   online tools, fitness center memberships, or the home fitness program. There are plenty of virtual gym workouts on the Silver&Fit Facebook page and YouTube channel.

4. Schedule your Annual Wellness Visit (AWV).

Every 12 months, this free visit helps develop and/or update your personalized prevention plan, based on your current health and risk factors, to prevent disease and disability. We also know that it can be difficult to get in for your AWV. Aspire Health Plan members can schedule a free Health at Home visit. During this visit, you receive a comprehensive health and wellness assessment performed by a licensed clinician in the comfort of your own home at no cost to you. This is a great opportunity for you to discuss any concerns related to your health and well-being.

5. Look into our health coaching program.

Aspire Health Plan members have no-cost access to an enhanced care team, including health coaches who offer personalized one-on-one telephone support to help you meet your health goals, provide health resources, and reduce risks or complications related to chronic conditions. You can request more information by calling (831) 644-7490.

If you would like to talk with someone at Aspire about ways to make the most of any of the health and wellness benefits discussed above, please contact Member Services at (855) 570-1600 (toll free), (831) 574-4938 (local). TTY users call 711.
