BCBST Lifestyle Benefits
The Healthy Focus Coaching On Demand is an option of your WellAdvantage program for health coaching for those who live in rural areas, work shifts or have other commitments that make it hard to attend face-to-face health coaching and meetings. This program includes 24/7/365 inbound telephonic health coaching and decision support. All eligible employees will receive an initial mailing inviting them to call for any symptom, condition or health related issue. Health coaches use motivational interviewing principles on every call, and every call is viewed as an opportunity to educate and reinforce existing resources. This model typically includes at least one scheduled follow up outbound call. Beyond that, our coaches are encouraged to supplement their coaching conversations with mailed materials, including educational booklets with DVDs when appropriate. You can reach the Nurse Line at 1-800-818-8581.
The Healthy Maternity program performs risk assessments to identify women at risk for pre-term birth and other pregnancy-related complications for women less than 34 weeks gestation. Risk assessments are used to stratify participants in different levels of risk, such as at-risk or no-risk. All participants identified as at-risk pregnancies are referred to the High Risk OB Program for care management. Based on the member's risk level, educational materials are sent targeting the specific needs of each participant along with general pregnancy and wellness information, and text4baby messaging.
The 24/7 Healthy Maternity nurseline, offers support and answers questions through telephonic interactions with experienced perinatal nurses. Once risks are identified, members receive ongoing clinical support from high-risk OB case managers. A postpartum follow-up is conducted and all members are provided a reminder for a postpartum check-up. The toll-free number remains available for 6 weeks post-delivery. As an incentive, gift cards are distributed at the end of the program to encourage ongoing engagement in the program. The nurseline can be reached at 1-800-818-8581 (choose managed care option).
