How does the assessment work?
If you are eligible, you may receive a letter from either Signify Health or Matrix Medical Network to schedule your visit. The letter will contain a number you can call to schedule your appointment. The licensed medical professionals working for Signify Health or Matrix conduct the assessment in the comfort of your own home. It includes taking basic vitals, such as your blood pressure and pulse. During the assessment, the medical professional conducting the assessment may:
  • Review recommended screenings based on your age and health status
  • Discuss relevant information on health conditions, medicines and preventive care
  • Answer your questions about the medicines you take and the best way to take them
To get the most out of your assessment, we encourage you to schedule a follow-up with your Primary Care Provider (PCP) to go over the results. If you do not have a PCP, Humana can help you find one in the Humana network. You can also find a PCP through Humana’s Find a doctor tool.
Is the assessment required?
No, the assessment is optional. However, it is a great opportunity to get up to an hour of dedicated and personalized time focused solely on you and your health. The assessment is beneficial to both you and your doctor as it gives an extra pair of eyes and ears to your personal health goals.
What are the assessment results used for?
You will receive a brief report that will highlight suggested topics to discuss with your doctor at your next visit. If you have a PCP, Humana will also share the assessment results with them. This will help you and your doctor manage your overall health. The assessment is not a substitute for regular doctor visits, but it does help to provide another layer of support for you. Based on your results, Humana may also suggest resources that can further assist you with your health goals. The results do not affect your health plan rates or benefits.*
How long does the assessment take?
Your assessment will take about 45 minutes to an hour.
