Iowa Farm Bureau Introduces Bold Initiative to Improve Health Care for Rural Iowans
Date:1/19/2010

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. and DES MOINES, Iowa, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Preventive Medicine, Inc. (www.USPreventiveMedicine.com) will partner with the Iowa Chronic Care Consortium (ICCC) to help a group of Iowa Farm Bureau members not yet eligible for Medicare reduce health risks and live longer, healthier lives.

The two-year program, which is funded in equal amounts by a grant/cooperative agreement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the ICCC – a voluntary collaboration of private, academic and government organizations – is available to approximately 500 Iowa Farm Bureau members and their spouses on a first-come basis.  Participants must meet certain criteria, which include access to high-speed Internet, a rural Iowa resident between the ages of 48 and 63, and not having their primary insurance provided through the Farm Bureau.

U.S. Preventive Medicine's health improvement program, The Prevention Plan™, will help Iowa Farm Bureau members:

  • Identify their top health risks through a blood test and online questionnaire.
  • Follow customized action programs to reduce health risks, including one-one-one health coaching by registered nurse advocates. 
  • Access a personalized web site to store medical information, complete educational health programs and receive reminders about needed screenings.
  • Measure progress using The Prevention Score™, an innovative tool that measures preventive efforts throughout the year.
