State Wellness Benefits (PEBA)
UofSC faculty, staff and retirees enrolled in the State Health Plan have access to free health management programs. These benefits help you to proactively monitor your health, make informed decisions that lead to healthier outcomes and address health issues early, before they become a health crisis.
Adult well visits are a covered benefit under the Standard Plan, subject to copayments, deductibles and coinsurance in covered years.
Rally is a web and mobile platform offered at no cost to State Health Plan primary members (Standard and Savings Plan) age 16 and older. The platform gives you personalized recommendations to get you moving more, eating better and feeling happier.
Naturally Slim is a clinically-proven online program that teaches you how to lose weight and keep it off forever while still eating your favorite foods. State Health Plan members, including spouses and dependent children age 18 and older, are eligible to apply.
Health coaching is available to Standard Plan and Savings Plan subscribers and their covered adult family members. If you have behavioral or chronic medical conditions, you can learn how to manage your symptoms, and delay or even prevent many of the complications of these diseases.
Blue CareOnDemand is a faster, easier way to connect with health care professionals. You can use this service to connect with U.S. board-certified physicians and other health care professionals 24/7, 365 days a year, from your computer or smartphone. This feature is available to State Health Plan primary members (Standard and Savings Plans) age 18 and older. Dependent children under age 18 can also use this benefit with an adult member.
When you receive care through a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), you work with a health care team that is typically lead by one doctor. The team may include nurses, a nutritionist, health educators, pharmacists and behavioral health specialists. Team members communicate with each other as well as the patient to provide comprehensive, coordinated care.
If you have time to plan ahead for an inpatient or outpatient procedure, you can research the quality of care you may expect to receive at the hospital. These websites provide information to help you make the best informed decision for your specific needs.
