Fey will present an overview of The Prevention Plan(TM), the first health benefit program developed exclusively to help individuals learn about and address their top health risks as well as help employers lower health care costs and increase workforce productivity.
U.S. Preventive Medicine recently partnered with Sam’s Club to offer The Prevention Plan(TM), making it the first health management program offered directly to consumers by a major retailer. Via an online health assessment and at-home blood test, users can take the first step towards identifying their individual health risks. The Prevention Plan(TM) not only helps to identify risks and suggest steps to treat them, but also helps to identify existing diseases and recommend how best to manage those conditions.
“The Prevention Plan(TM) reflects an important transition in the health care industry’s shift from the reactive treatment of illness to the proactive preservation of health,” said Fey. “This is an especially important goal of health care reform with $200 million in wellness grants already set aside for small businesses across the country.”
