Capital Health Plan is proud to announce that for the second year in a row, it has been honored with Bronze Recognition in the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Workplace Health Achievement Award program. The AHA is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke, and out of the thousands of public, private, and nonprofit organizations that applied, CHP was one of only 15 to earn the recognition.
The recipients are selected after submitting a self-assessment of their workplace, programs, and policies, including the budget for wellness initiatives, the availability of health workshops, lifestyle counseling, and health screenings for employees, the level of engagement and encouragement for healthy living from senior management – all the way down to the nutritional value of the food offered in workplace vending machines and kitchens.
The AHA’s Workplace Health Achievement Index allows organizations to qualify for gold, silver, and bronze level recognition based on their total Index score. The framework of the Workplace Health Achievement Index was built so that organizations continue to strive to improve the health of their workplace and their workforce. In assessing different organizations, the AHA found that when it comes to getting employees engaged, a supportive culture of health and senior management leadership are keys to success.
The AHA award is the latest in a series of recognitions earned recently by Capital Health Plan. Other honors include being recognized as one of the top plans in Florida and among the highest rated plans in the nation, according to the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s (NCQA). NCQA’s Private Insurance Plan and Medicare Health Insurance Plan Ratings 2019-2020 rated both CHP’s Commercial private plan and Medicare plan 4.5 out of 5.
