Under Gov- ernor Martinez's initiative, State & Local Public Body (LPB) em- ployees, spouses, and domestic partners who have medical cov- erage with New Mexico's Group Benefits Plan will have easy ac- cess to wellness check-ups and screenings. "This is an important step in adapting to the challenges pre- sented by health care reform," said Governor Susana Martinez. "As health care costs continue to rise nationally, taking a proactive approach to providing preventa- tive care helps us reduce health care costs due to injuries and chronic diseases and illnesses. This will keep our families and communities healthier and save taxpayer dollars. Innovations like this show how New Mexico con- tinues to lead through the health care challenges we face." Beginning this month, the State of New Mexico will bring wellness checkups to employees near their place of work. Eligible employees will be able t'o sched- ule a 45 minute health evaluation by a licensed Nurse Practitioner (NP) and health techaician, pro- vided by Blue Cross Blue Shield+s partner, Catapult Health. These appointments will include labo- ratory-accurate testing such as cholesterol and glucose levels, height, weight, blood pressure, and others, and will then be re- viewed onsite with participants by the NR These screenings can help identify health problems such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and oth- ers. "We want our employees to lead happy and productive lives, and good health is a major part of making that happen," said New Mexico Risk Management Divi- sion (RMD) Director A.J. Forte. "Early detection and prevention World Asthma ,Day in New Mexico Continued from Page 1 symptoms or asthma attacks. Assess asthma severity at the initial visit to determine what treatment to start to get your asthma under control. Assess and monitor how well controlled your asthma is at follow-up visits. Your doctor may need to adjust your medicine to keep asthma under control. Schedule follow-up visits at periodic intervals, and at least every six months. Avoid or control environ- mental exposures such as aller- gens or irritants that worsen your asthma. These actions are based on guidelines for improving asthma control and care from the Na- tional Asthma Education and Pre- vention Program (NAEPP) that is coordinated by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), a part of the National Institutes of Health. If you have asthma but have not yet developed an asthma ac- tion plan, the Department of Health encourages you to work with your healthcare provider to develop one and discuss how to use it. of potential conditions will help ensure better health, which keeps health costs and insurance premi- ums as low as possible in the long runY This new program offers in- centives to participants to take a proactive approach to health and wellness by offering VISA giftcards for participation, and additional incentives to those who have reduced certain risk factors after a one-year follow-up evaluation. While eligible State and LPB employees previously had access to wellness checks through their providers, few took advantage. Offering these screen- ings onsite, with participation in- centives, will encourage more employees to engage in these dis- cussions about their wellness, helping to detect health problems earlier.
