Health Risk Assessment (HRA)

We encourage you to complete a Health Risk Assessment (HRA) Questionnaire within 90 days of effective date of coverage and annually thereafter. This is a tool used by your care team to help determine possible health risk factors you may be facing, which gives the team the opportunity to connect you with resources and promote education, coaching, and wellness activities based on your specific needs. Please visit your member portal to complete your HRA Questionnaire; the link to the Questionnaire is found in the Quick Links section on the home page of the portal.
