Understanding health care terminology and making decisions about how and where to go for care can be confusing, so it’s important for patients to be able to communicate effectively with their providers and take an active role in their health care. A person’s ability to receive, understand and communicate basic health information and services is called their health literacy level. We need to be able to voice our individual needs, concerns and our preferred way of learning new information, along with any issues that might limit our ability to understand our doctors’ instructions. Choosing a primary care provider, or PCP, can help us build this level of familiarity and trust for a more personalized experience. A personal or family doctor can also help make sure we are up-to-date on all recommended screenings and immunizations, based on our age, gender and personal history. Preventive services are the best way to identify potential health risks before they become serious and head off any problems while they are most treatable. Common preventive services include: Blood pressure and cholesterol measurements to assess and manage future risk for heart disease Fasting glucose (blood sugar) readings to look for signs of diabetes Screenings for signs of cancer in the breast, colon or cervix Immunizations against the flu, pneumonia, tetanus or shingles viruses As an employer, you can do your part to promote the benefits of having a PCP to coordinate the overall care of your employees and their families, along with the importance of preventive services. It also may help to remind your members that federal law guarantees preventive health services identified by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force are covered at 100 percent by your health care benefits plan. That means members won’t pay any deductible, co-pays or co-insurance for these services if they go to an in-network doctor or health care facility. Here are links to resources selected by our Worksite Wellness consultants to help you spread the word about health literacy. We’ve chosen an article on health literacy from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), UnitedHealth Group’s Just Plain Clear Glossary of common health terminology, and an article on understanding health information from the American Academy of Family Physicians. Plus, we’ve picked healthy recipes for cranberry smoothies, strawberry, pineapple and kale smoothies, and chunky grape salsa. Consider sharing these links with your employees as part of your health promotion activities this month. Health literacy resources This month’s suggested health promotional campaign in our 2020 Health and Wellness Communication Guide is designed to quip members with questions to ask their primary care physician or other health care provider during their next office visit.
