  • Shield Concierge – easy no-cost access for members to a dedicated team of health advocates, registered nurses, social workers, health coaches, and pharmacists.
  • Wellvolution  new digital platform for preventive care, disease reversal, and overall well-being. Lifestyle programs focus on nutrition management, physical activity, stress/coping/resilience, smoking cessation and nicotine replacement therapy, weight loss and management, and chronic condition management.
  • A wide range of Discount Programs for fitness and exercise, vision services, and alternative care.
