It all revolves around the health assessment. This one-on-one health evaluation, conducted by a licensed, highly skilled Nurse Practitioner, provides you an opportunity to discuss your health concerns and questions.
We’ve found that often the most beneficial information comes from simply taking the time to really get to know you and your medical history. That’s why our assessments can take up to an hour.
Your assessment will include:
- A limited, non-invasive physical exam
- A discussion about personal, social and family medical history
- A review of your current medications
- Information and recommendations about further evaluation
Our Nurse Practitioner will take the time to sit with you and really learn how you’re feeling. You can ask questions in a relaxed atmosphere, without feeling rushed or anxious. And if you’d like, family members or caregivers can be present.
Benefits to you:
So what does this mean for you? First and foremost, it’s a comfortable, convenient way to get a focused, non-invasive physical exam, at no-cost, in the privacy of your own home. You’ll have the chance to ask questions and get advice from a highly qualified health care professional.
The member satisfaction scores we receive from those who receive assessments consistently rate above 93%. Members value the personal connection they make with our Nurse Practitioners, the information and education they receive, and the amount of time taken during the health assessment to really understand their personal health situation.
The information from the assessment can be forwarded to your primary care doctor to provide a better picture of your overall health.
How to schedule your assessment:
Assessments are scheduled during weekdays at a time most convenient for you. Just call our toll-free number 866-968-8919 between 8a.m. and 11p.m. EST, and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you.
How to prepare for your assessment:
To get ready for your assessment, just make sure to have your insurance ID card, a copy of any recent blood test (lab) results, and all of your medications readily available (prescription as well as over the counter and physician provided samples). Also, even though the assessment is non-invasive, and you will not need to undress, it is helpful to wear a loose fitting short sleeved shirt or blouse and socks or something easily removed from your feet.
How Matrix uses the information:
Rest assured, your assessment information is managed on a confidential basis.
It will be shared with your health plan to ensure you receive the programs and services that would be most beneficial and can be shared with your primary care physician to help them take better care of you.
