Health program

PLATTSBURGH — MVP Health Care’s Medicare Advantage members now have another way to keep healthy and active. Partnering with Healthways, health-management company, MVP is introducing the new Well-Being Program, offering a comprehensive set of activities and resources to help Medicare members maintain a healthy lifestyle.

The signature piece of the new program is Well-Being ConnectTM, an online portal that allows members to create a tailored approach to accessing and improving their overall health. Along with the new portal, the program includes popular existing MVP programs such as wellness classes, the Silver Sneakers Fitness Program and outreach designed to help improve the lives of members living with chronic diseases.

The Well-Being Program is currently available to the approximately 85,000 Medicare Advantage members in MVP’s service footprint.

“This is an informative and fun new way for our Medicare Advantage members to be proactive about maintaining and improving their health,” said Patrick Glavey, executive vice president of government programs for MVP. “Our wellness and fitness programs are already so well utilized that we think our members will really embrace these new options for engaging with their health.”

Well-Being Connect can be accessed by Medicare Advantage members once they log into their MVP account at To begin using the new portal, members must first complete the Well-Being Assessment, a confidential questionnaire that evaluates their lifestyle and overall health. Once the assessment is completed, they are provided a full health report and customized action plan, which they are encouraged to share with their doctors.
