HEALTH AND WELLNESS TOOLS


Modern healthcare is a complex maze of choices, options, and information overload.  Sadly, the attention is often on disease management instead of preventive care.

Preventive care focuses on becoming and staying well, which is the key objective of all the health and wellness tools offered by My Academy of Health Excellence.

It's up to you to become or stay well through education, nutrition and fitness.  No doctor, hospital or prescription drug alone can do this for you without your active engagement.

The Academy of Health Excellence has introduced three different programs that are offered on a stand-alone basis to those with or without health insurance (the tools included in the GOLD Plan are included in Health Excellence Plus).  The Bronze  Plan is FREE to those who join, whereas the Gold and Platinum plans contain additional tools and resources and are provided at a monthly cost of $25 and $50 per membership type, respectively. 

Please call us at 561-922-9316 (office/cell), 561-734-3884 (local), or 877-734-3884 (toll free) to obtain additional information or to enroll in one of these programs.

The Academy is in the process of developing and introducing additional resources, and we'll provide information about these exciting programs and tools on this page as each is introduced.

Health Excellence Bronze Plan--FREE

Join the WellFit Sharing Community for sharing health and wellness information and obtain up to 70% savings on prescription medications through the World Meds program:

The WellFit Community (you can register for the Community at www.wellfitcommunity.com) enables you to connect, communicate, contribute and collaborate with other like-minded members.  We recommend you use Internet Explorer when registering on the site, and if you have trouble establishing a password you should be able to use MyAHE2017 as your password.

You can join different discussion groups on many health topics and share information on your chosen topic(s) with all individuals who are participating in that group. 

By obtaining helpful information on the topic(s) of your choice, you (1) can either avoid the onset of chronic health conditions and the associated high cost of their treatment or (2) receive valuable information that might be helpful to you in reducing treatment costs or obtaining information about the availability of alternative treatments for a particular chronic condition that you might already have.

World Meds is an international drug discount program that provides the most significant savings on brand name prescription drugs that we are aware of (discounts for brand name drugs can be as high as 70%) and also offers well-priced generic drugs. 

Only WellFit Program members can participate in this program, and they must provide a special code (which we will furnish upon membership) when calling to order medications.  This program is extremely valuable for members without drug coverage, whose drugs are not on their insurance plan's formulary, or for seniors who either fall into the donut hole or who can't afford their prescription drugs.

Health Excellence GOLD Plan

Eighty-six cents of every healthcare dollar spent in the United States is used to treat or manage chronic conditions.  A full 75% of those conditions are completely preventable through awareness, education and lifestyle modification. Participation in the Gold Plan provides you with many of the Academy's tools and resources needed to identify and mitigate your potential health risks.  If we can collectively eliminate the need for preventable procedures and treatments, the costs for everyone are reduced because of the actual savings realized by the individual member and by the experience of everyone in a specific ACA or Medicare Supplement, Medicare Advantage, or Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan.  The plan's experience rating can potentially be reduced, thus leading to the avoidance of large increases (or even possible premium reductions), and plan outcomes and star ratings (for Medicare Advantage and Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Plans) can also be improved. 

The other reason to utilize this platform is more personal.  Everyone is unique and different.  By participating in this Plan and engaging with your Wellness Coordinator, we can help you identify the particular area of health and wellness most important to you and customize a program to help reach your goals.

in addition to the programs included in the Bronze Plan (above) you receive access to the entire suite of tools offered through My Academy of Health Excellence with the exception of Telemedicine and Advocate(s).  This is the exact program that is offered as part of Health Excellence Plus.

The toolbox provides access to free and subscription-based fitness, exercise and emotional well-being websites and mobile applications. These presently include:

  • Fitness Blender
  • Your Wellness Room

Labels, tags, and wrist bands (as well as key fobs) containing the code can also be ordered to wear on shoes, helmets, lanyards, ID badges and other personal belongings. 

Users can also (1) store and review medical files; (2 record health-related observations; (3) receive medication reminders; (4) contact doctors and caregivers; and (5) share health records, personal health diaries and photos. Additional free and fee-based services are in development.

MyQR LIfe Codes and MyHealth.Us are fully HIPAA compliant.

Get healthier, feel better and save money. 

These include the monthly Health Excellence Newsletter that is sent to all members; seminars and webinars with health and wellness experts; direct mail, email campaigns and text messaging on health and wellness subjects; and the WellFit Wellness mobile application.

Feeling ill is never convenient, especially in the middle of the night or while traveling.  With the telemedicine program, the doctor is always in, day or night. Members have unlimited 24/7/365 access to board-certified physicians with $0 consultation fee. 

Telemedicine doctors are licensed in your state or the state you are visiting, and can prescribe many medications.  They will also refer you to an emergency room or other services/providers if that is indicated based on their diagnosis and discussion of your medical complaint. 

For emergencies call 911.
