Your Personal Care Plan
You may have been asked to complete a Personal Care Plan, but you’re not quite sure what it is. Formerly known as a Health Risk Assessment, a Personal Care Plan is a short questionnaire about your health and lifestyle that gives a profile of your overall health and well-being.
Personal Care Plans provide a guided learning experience that helps you to identify your health risks and understand the lifestyle factors that may add to your risk. With that information, you and your provider can plan the next steps in your health journey. Completing your Care Plan will help you:
- Identify your behaviors that are considered good health practices
- Identify protective and health risk factors
- Get an overall picture of your health and lifestyle
- Make healthy life decisions
While the health information your doctor gathers from you, such as blood pressure or lab results, are good indicators of your current health, only you can provide details on other aspects of your well-being, such as your mental health status or lifestyle habits. Your honest answers to these questions tell us how we can best provide the resources and services you need to support your individual health.
Could you use a care manager to help you to better manage a condition? Perhaps you need preventive services — completing your Care Plan is the first step in helping us guide you to the services that will most benefit you. By better understanding your needs, we can offer more personalized health care solutions.
