What exactly makes someone healthy? Part of the answer is that it’s not just about how someone looks on the outside. Appearances can be deceiving.

Many different factors go into play when it comes to someone’s health and well-being. The Healthy People Initiative was first introduced in 1979 by Surgeon General Julius Richmond. The main goal of Healthy People is to improve the overall health and well-being of everyone all over the country. USFHP cares for the health and well-being of their patients as well.

Key performance indicators for the Healthy People Initiative include health conditions, health behaviors, populations, settings & systems, and social determinants of health. There are many factors that can affect one’s health. It is critical to know things like what foods are healthy, keep track of one’s weight, and to have access to healthcare or health insurance.

Around 30 million people across the United States don’t have health insurance, making it less likely that they will get the care and medications that they need. So, how would they know if they are in good health or not? The Healthy People initiative is working towards improving health care coverage for everyone. USFHP is in alignment with this initiative through our comprehensive TRICARE Prime coverage plans, available to families of active duty service members, as well as military retirees and their families.

Each fall Open Season presents a chance for you to sign up for the insurance plan that is right for you and your family, or make adjustments to the plan you already have, so that you can be certain that you are able to track your health and keep it in top condition. 

Are you unsure about what all to include in your insurance coverage plan? Review some tips from our previous Open Season blog.

USFHP’s TRICARE Prime Plan provides routine doctor's visits, hospitalization, prescription coverage, preventative health care coverage, and specialty care to keep you in good health.
