Happy New Year!

As we begin 2020, we take just a moment to look back with gratitude, the many blessings that have been bestowed upon us.  2019 was a great year but I prefer looking ahead! Currently we are preparing for our 8th Annual Groundhog Breakfast where we will tap our first ever ‘Agri-Business or Agri-Business Person of the Year.’ We are excited to celebrate the rich agricultural industry of our county. With two great speakers and catering by The Willow, you’ll want to call and reserve your tickets today! A great morning is planned for you! More information and speaker bios can be found below.

As I finalize a few more events for 2020, a calendar will be sent out. I do hope you will join us. We offer many opportunities to network, grow, and learn from each other. I truly appreciate the support of each and every member. You bring great things to Fayette County and I pray 2020 is your best year yet!

As Vern McClellan says “what the new year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year.”

Here’s to a great 2020!

Anthem Update from the
Southern Ohio Chamber Alliance
Health and Wellness Programs: Be in the Know!
Employers with highly effective health and wellness programs report higher revenue.* That’s where Anthem comes in: They have many options to help employees stay healthy, save money and make the right health care choices, such as:
  • 24/7 NurseLine: Registered nurses are on call 24/7 to help with everything from a baby’s fever to allergy relief tips and can advise on where to go for care.
  • Future Moms: Nurses help moms-to-be follow their provider’s plan of care, identify any risks, make healthier decisions during pregnancy and prepare for delivery. Future Moms with Breastfeeding Support on LiveHealth Online offers online visits with a lactation consultant, counselor or registered dietitian through private and secure video using a smartphone, tablet or computer.
  • MyHealth Advantage: When gaps in care or health risks are identified through claims and other health data, Anthem mails a confidential MyHealth Note outlining specific actions to take for better health and lower health care costs.
  • ConditionCare: Employees dealing with a chronic condition like asthma or diabetes can get one-on-one help from a health care professional. They’ll learn ways to manage their health and reach their health goals.
  • Case management: Employees with complex health issues can work with our nurses and behavioral care managers to stay on top of their health issues and navigate the health care system. Backed by a team of doctors, pharmacists, exercise physiologists and others, Anthem’s case managers have the latest information and treatment options.
Contact your broker or Anthem Sales representative for all the details.
