Improving care with a health assessment

As a new Medicare Advantage member, you can rest assured that Sanford Health Plan is here to help you with your health care needs and lifestyle goals.

One way we do this is with our brief health questionnaire called a health assessment. When you receive your welcome booklet, you’ll find the health assessment included.

The health assessment is a screening tool that asks questions related to your health and lifestyle. You’ll find questions related to your: 

  • Health conditions and how you feel about your health
  • Hearing, vision and dental health
  • Ability to complete daily activities
  • Nutrition and exercise
  • Support systems

Filling out the form is quick and easy. Members can do it on their own and mail it to Sanford Health Plan using the enclosed return envelope. It can also be completed over the phone with a health navigator or our sales agents are also available to help with health assessment forms.

Benefits of a Health Assessment

When you complete a health assessment, it provides a better understanding of your current situation so our team can connect you with resources and programs to meet your needs and improve your health.

Our holistic approach is meant to enrich every area of your life. Our services include:
