HMSA's HealthPass--a strategy for delivery of preventive services.

Author information

  • 1Hawaii Medical Service Association, HealthPass Department, Honolulu 96814, USA.

Abstract

Several groups have recommended standards for preventive health care services. Despite this, our health care system contains many obstacles that impede their delivery. Recognizing the need to provide members with appropriate, meaningful, and cost-effective health promotion and disease prevention services, HMSA has created HealthPass. This benefit is now available to 40% of the membership. It offers health promotion, education, and screening services through a formalized network across the state. HealthPass services are integrated with individual physician providers to offer selected periodic evaluations for adults. HMSA's HealthPass was created to promote public health and further enable members to obtain preventive services. HMSA encourages its physician providers to participate in this statewide effort at primary health promotion.
