Health and Wellness Programs

  • Healthier employees often lead to better bottom lines. Premera's rich variety of programs and services are designed to maintain and improve employee health, lower costs, and reward people for doing the right thing. More information about our health and wellness programs is available by contacting your General Agency partner or your Premera sales representative.

  • Employees who feel better do better.

    That's why Premera Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alaska offers a wellness program aimed at equipping employers with information and tools to create a culture of well-being within their workplace.

    Our Wellness Academy lectures are presented by industry authorities on wellness. Information presented is based on science and research of human behaviors, which employers can use to cultivate a culture of worksite well-being. In each lecture session, we will provide you with interactive exercises and actionable tips.

    Members can take a Health Assessment to evaluate their individual health risks and get personalized suggestions on how to improve their health and wellness. When they finish the assessment, they'll receive a tailored health report based on their behaviors and lifestyle choices which may contribute to (or reduce) their risk for certain diseases.

    Managing employee healthcare costs can begin at the workplace. Vivacity workforce wellness programs create cultures of health to help employers gain control over healthcare costs and improve productivity.
