Health Engagement

Becoming more engaged in your health is one of the most important investments you can make in yourself. Individuals who are active and engaged in their health experience a higher satisfaction level when they get healthcare, have lower overall healthcare costs and are healthier.

 

But, what does being engaged mean? It means you take an active role in your health and healthcare. This can include:

  • following through on treatments you and your providers decide are important (taking medications as prescribed or completing physical therapy for example);
  • talking with health providers and asking questions to be sure you understand a diagnosis or treatment plan; and
  • understanding the benefits of your health insurance.

 

Becoming more engaged in your health may seem overwhelming, but KFMC is here to help you Explore, Connect and Achieve your health goals. We can assist you on your health journey, by providing free resources such as our Lead Your Health newsletter, and providing SME workshops in your area. We also have a TOLL FREE number to answer questions or point you in the right direction!
