THE WAY TO WELLNESS
The way to wellness begins when you understand your health status and know exactly what you can do to improve it. That’s why you should take the HealthQuotient (HQ) every year.
- Here are a few more good reasons:
- You’ll get a simple report outlining your health risks.
- You’ll get a practical plan for taking action.
- You’ll be able to see how your results compare to others like you.
- Based on your results, you may qualify for (WebMD) health coaching.
This program is available to all employees, retirees, and dependents over the age of 18 who are UT SELECT Medical members.

Free Preventive Care and Services – The UT SELECT Medical has always offered robust preventive care benefits including 100%
preventive colonoscopy and no cost immunizations for children under 6 years of age. Now, with the implementation of
health care reform, beginning September 1, 2011, certain additional preventive care and services will be available to
you with no copayment or coinsurance as long as you see a network provider. Be aware that you may be responsible for
some services received during an office visit if those services are not preventive. Some examples of services covered
under this provision are, depending on your age.
- Routine physical exam
- Well-woman exam
- Osteoporosis screening
- Prostate (PSA) screening
Please be aware that you may incur some cost if the preventive service is not the primary purpose of the visit or if your doctor bills for services that are not preventive. Eligible services are outlined in the Federal Regulations based on U.S. Preventive Service Task Force Recommendations. You may find more information about the covered preventive services here.
