U.S. Preventive Medicine Helps Participants of the State of Nevada Public Employees' Benefits Program (PEBP) Become Healthier
Date:4/27/2010

DALLAS and CARSON CITY, Nev., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- State of Nevada public employees are taking steps to get healthier and feel better by participating in The Prevention Plan™, a U.S. Preventive Medicine® program designed to encourage healthy behaviors, detect disease in the earliest stages and manage chronic conditions before they progress. The program is projected to save Nevada taxpayers several million dollars over the next four years.

The Prevention Plan benefit is part of the "Live Well, Be Well" initiative by the State of Nevada Public Employees' Benefits Program (PEBP), which promotes improved health to 44,000 employees and retirees. The Prevention Plan is open to PEBP PPO participants, who will receive a health assessment, one-on-one health coaching, personalized action plans and timely, relevant health information. PPO participants and their spouses or domestic partners with diabetes will receive intensive care management from The Prevention Plan. PEBP PPO Participants will begin enrolling on July 1, 2010.  

"We are charged with two critical functions here at PEBP. One to deliver a quality health care program that is responsive to the individual's specific needs and the second is to provide fiscal soundness for the long-term viability of our program," said Jon Hager, chief financial officer of the Nevada Public Employees Benefits Program. "We consider The Prevention Plan a forward thinking program that will help us accomplish both goals and succeed in an increasingly difficult realm."

The Prevention Plan will help Nevada PEBP employees and retirees:
