Healthy Michigan Plan members should complete a Healthy Risk Assessment (HRA) with their doctor each year. This helps their provider and health plan better understand and meet their health needs. But what is an HRA?
What is a Healthy Risk Assessment?
A Healthy Risk Assessment is a form you and your doctor fill out during your annual visit. Use it to talk about your health habits and goals. The assessment asks about your activity levels, diet, and more. It identifies potential health risks and your health goals. It can be easily completed in just one visit.
Healthy Michigan Plan members should complete an HRA yearly. The assessment is a point of reference for your doctor. It helps your doctor and health plan provide the best care for you.
Completing it can also help you reach your health goals. You can use it to work on developing healthy behaviors. If you do, there could be a reduction in required cost-sharing. Contact your health plan to learn more.
