Comprehensive Wellness Assessment
Your Comprehensive Wellness Assessment
Your health is important to us and to your primary care physician. Together, we want to help you better manage it. One way we do that is to offer you a health evaluation at no cost through the Peoples Health Comprehensive Wellness Assessment Program. This assessment helps us understand your health needs and allows us to better work together to coordinate your care.
We now offer telehealth assessments, a safe and secure way to get your assessment at home. Connect with a provider online using a smartphone or computer. Your device must have audio and video capabilities.
Call 1-866-780-5788, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., to set up your assessment.

No matter where you decide to have it, there is no cost to you. It takes about an hour or a little longer to complete. The assessment is personalized for you, so the length of time depends on the detail of your medical history and the special topics and questions we discuss with you.

The assessment does not replace any appointments you have scheduled with your doctors or the care you receive from your doctors. We also want to make it easier for you to provide information that Peoples Health and your primary care physician need to know about your health to coordinate your care. Your primary care physician can use the information you share to develop and monitor your care plan.
