HumanaVitalitySM is a comprehensive wellness solution focused on physical activity, education, screenings, tobacco cessation, and nutrition. We use a behavior-change model, based on reputable results, rooted in incentives to motivate people to achieve their goals. HumanaVitality has three key parts:
Know Your Health
Get started with HumanaVitality by completing one of the most user-friendly and engaging health assessments that evaluates health status and shows where and how to make lifestyle improvements. Then, receive your Vitality Age™ , a proprietary measure to help see immediately how lifestyle impacts health. From there, HumanaVitality creates a personalized program — a Personal Pathway™ — and recommends goals and activities to help you achieve optimal health.
Engage in Your Health
From your Personal Pathway, set goals and engage in highly personalized activities. Goals can be things like:
- Reaching or maintaining a healthy weight
- Exercising regularly
- Learning about medical conditions or concerns
- Making smart lifestyle choices such as staying or becoming tobacco-free
HumanaVitality provides over 30 activities that are verified to ensure high standards of accountability and that real change is occurring. Sample activities include:
- Annual preventive care screenings
- Biometric assessments
- Daily workouts
- Improving health metrics like lowering cholesterol
Earn points for completing goals and activities, and also receive Vitality Bucks® you can use for rewards — such as movie tickets, music downloads, electronics, hotel packages and even charitable donations. The HumanaVitalitySM Mall provides a wide choice of rewards to motivate you.
