Tools for Healthy Living

for both PPO and Kaiser Permanente Plan Participants

Wellness is more than just not getting sick. To help you feel your best, the Trust provides a wide variety of programs and resources, including an annual health assessment, healthy eating education, reimbursements for fitness events, and programs to help you quit tobacco.

Get a snapshot of your health by taking the Annual Personal Health Assessment (PPO) or Health Profile (Kaiser) between July 1 and September 30 each year. In addition to providing you valuable personal health insights, by taking this annual health assessment you can earn the maximum in Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) funding.

  • Make exercise fun and earn rewards and HRA funding by participating in a LiveWell Fit event. New events are posted each month on the Trust website.
  • Achieve lasting weight loss by changing how you eat, instead of what you eat with Wondr Health. This 6-week online program is offered several times during the year, and Trust participants are accepted through an application process.
  • Quit tobacco for good with Quit Tobacco Coaching (PPO) or Quit for Life (Kaiser). Both offer support and tools to help put tobacco in the past.

For Kaiser Permanente Plan Participants:
