Healthy Living Program

Call or visit online 24/7! — Free for members, our Healthy Living Program gives you reliable, proven and unbiased health information, explains your options and helps you work more closely with your doctor to choose health care that's right for you.

Preventive care

Healthcare reform legislation, known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), has made sweeping changes in health care, and one of the first things to take effect was expanded coverage for preventive services. Commercial health plans (except for "grandfathered" plans), individual plans and Medicare must fully cover certain services that have proven to make a positive difference in clinical outcomes. As we have always believed in the value of preventive care, Health First wholeheartedly supports these rules and covers all required preventive benefits with no cost share to you. Members must see participating providers and follow established guidelines and frequency limits.

The guidelines list services generally recommended for people with average health risks. Please ask your doctor if he or she has other recommendations based on your individual history, ethnic/racial group or other risks.

New technology

What are new technologies?
New technologies are medical and/or behavioral health services including treatments, procedures, and devices that have been recently introduced to the market and are still considered investigational or experimental. Some may have been recently approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration but not adopted yet as a “standard of care” in the medical community.

How are new technologies evaluated for inclusion in the benefit package?
The plan may receive requests from members and physicians for coverage of new technologies. While new technologies are always exciting and come with great expectations, it is not always clear that they will provide the most effective treatment options for patients.

The plan has a committee that evaluates new technologies to determine if they should be covered. The committee includes participating physicians from various specialties, medical directors, and staff pharmacists. We are committed to looking carefully at such services to be sure they are safe, helpful in treating or maintaining health, reasonably cost-effective, and not subject to being used for purposes other than those intended.

We consider the thoroughness of research behind the new service, clinical trial results, and the anticipated value to our members. We also research and evaluate literature and invite physicians requesting the service to present their findings before we make a decision. To ensure decisions are unbiased and made solely for the benefit of our members, the majority of committee members are not financially tied to the Health Plan, and any participating physician is welcome to participate in the process.
