U.S. Preventive Medicine Announces Nationwide Launch of The Prevention Plan
Date:9/11/2008

In a move that will be of great interest to employers and employee benefit brokers and consultants, U.S. Preventive Medicine has launched The Prevention Plan, its grounbreaking wellness and health management tool designed to help control costs and promote healthier lifestyles among workers.

Dallas (PRWEB) September 11, 2008 -- U.S. Preventive Medicine, the leader in disease prevention, today announced the official nationwide launch of The Prevention Plan™, its groundbreaking http://www.uspreventivemedicine.com [ wellness] and health management program designed to help employers control rising health care costs and promote healthier lifestyles among workers. The Prevention Plan™ is now available to both large and small employers directly as well as to employee benefit consultants and brokers to offer to their employer clients.

The Prevention Plan™ is the first-of-its kind benefit concept solely focused on preventive care. The program enables individuals to determine their top health risks and receive a customized plan and ongoing personal attention to lower those risks and become healthier.

With this tool, individuals prioritize their health risks through a substantial health evaluation that includes a health risk questionnaire, comprehensive blood tests, biometrics and physician review and recommendations. The heart of the intervention strategies is a RN Advocate, who works closely with each member by telephone and online to boost effectiveness of the program’s hands-on action plans, as well as educate, motivate and help navigate the complex maze of health care. Other tools in the program include alerts for http://www.uspreventivemedicine.com [preventive screenings] – including those paid for by the employer – reward programs and discounts with national partners.

“The launch of our program is coming at an ideal time for employers as well as brokers and consultants who are looking for solutions to help their clients control health costs,” said Christopher Fey, Chairman and CEO of U.S. Preventive Medicine. “Numerous studies are reporting that employers are serious about implementing effective wellness and disease management programs that will actually curtail runaway http://www.uspreventivemedicine.com [health care costs]. They really don’t have any other choice. The federal government is projecting that the average cost of spending per person on health care will be $13,101 by the year 2017...nearly double the cost in 2006.”

The company decided to take The Prevention Plan™ nationwide after receiving high praise from employers and benefit brokers that tested the program. In fact, Fey said both large and small employers were signing contracts for quick implementation of The Prevention Plan™ after reviewing in-depth demonstrations and customized options appropriate for their budgets and employee base.

“We started with a clean slate of paper, did our homework, and built a suite of solutions based on what employers told us they needed. Frankly, we couldn’t be more gratified by the response, especially from those who have thoroughly researched the available options and feel our product is going to impact their health care costs,” Fey said.

U.S. Preventive Medicine designed the program to become a private, secure, online medical home for individuals to store medical information and track their progress over time. Since The Prevention Plan is independent of insurance, all information is completely confidential and portable even if the employer changes insurance carriers or the employee changes jobs.

“Great care was taken to design the program to be hands-on, educational and take each person step-by-step through the program,” Fey said. “This gives individuals a completely secure place to store their medical records so they can access them anytime and gives them the help they need to know what to do next to stay healthy. We even tell each member what preventive screenings are paid for in their other benefit programs, such as health or dental insurance.”

As part of the program, employers are provided with detailed management reports with aggregate data so they are fully informed about their employees’ overall risks and can more effectively target actions to mitigate them. Once specific areas of concerns are revealed, U.S. Preventive Medicine delivers custom programs to intensely manage the health of those individuals with costly chronic care needs or high-risk issues such as diabetes and pregnancy.

“The bottom line is that The Prevention Plan™ pays attention,” said Fey. “We help healthy individuals maintain their good health, and surround those with existing conditions to help them get on track to improve their quality of life.”
