  • Identify top health risks through an online questionnaire and biometric health screening.
  • Follow a personalized action program to reduce health risks, including one-one-one health coaching by registered nurse advocates and other prevention coaches.  
  • Access a personalized website to store medical information, complete educational programs, receive reminders about needed screenings and track personal progress.
  • Understand and take advantage of the company's health benefits and incentives.

  • PPO Participants who enroll in the program, complete a Health Risk Appraisal and receive a biometric screening will receive a $25 gift card. By taking healthy actions throughout the year and increasing their "Prevention Score," a Prevention Plan innovation that helps members confidentially tally their personal efforts, members also can earn up to a $360 annual reduction in their health insurance premium beginning July, 2011.

    "U.S. Preventive Medicine is very excited about partnering with the State of Nevada Public Employees' Benefit Program. Nevada is ahead of the curve in providing this level of preventive health care services to reduce costs and improve people's lives," said Christopher Fey, CEO and chairman of U.S. Preventive Medicine. "This program can inspire employers throughout the state, as well as other states, to invest in the health of their employees and use the power of prevention to lower health care costs."
