Employer Connection
January 2019
Happy New Year! We are pleased to provide the following updates, and encourage you to share this information with others in your company.
Make a Resolution to See Your PCP in 2019
The New Year is here, brimming with the promise of a fresh start. It is the perfect time to recommit to your wellbeing by eating healthier and boosting your fitness. HMAA also recommends you take advantage of your health plan’s preventive care benefits.

A visit with your Primary Care Physician can help identify health issues before they become serious, and give you a better chance of recovery if conditions are caught early. According to Primary Care Progress, adults who have a PCP have 19% lower odds of premature death than those who only see specialists.

By seeing your PCP and getting the right health services and screenings, you are taking steps toward living a longer, healthier life. If you don’t have a PCP, view our provider directory or contact us for assistance.
Prescription Benefits through OptumRx
As a friendly reminder, HMAA has partnered with OptumRx to provide you with quality, cost-effective services for retail and mail order prescription benefits effective January 1, 2019.
