Members at risk for diabetes and heart disease have access to Omada, a program designed to detect and decrease the incidence of future diabetic cases through an intensive screening and plans individualized to each person’s need. Interested members can access information at www.omadahealth.com/bcbsmn1. Please note, Omada is not available for members in the Western and Metro Networks, as these care systems have similar programs in place designed to assist with lifestyle changes. Available: July 1, 2018 for District Health Insurance Pool, TBD for CCOGA Health Insurance Pool.
Vitals SmartShopper is a new program designed to provide incentives to members who shop for healthcare. Brought to you by the Minnesota Healthcare Consortium, this system promotes actual behavior change by members and incents them to shop for lower cost of care services. Members can shop online or over the phone with the Vitals Personal Assistant Team. Incentives are in the form of checks paid out directly to the member and coordinated by Vitals. Available: Late 2018 for District Health Insurance Pool, TBD for CCOGA Health Insurance Pool.
Each year, the Wellness Conference provides the latest information on health and well being, upcoming regional health programs and offers a place for networking and resource sharing.
