Pivio for health plans

Lower healthcare costs. 
Healthier members.

Pivio is an evidence-based lifestyle modification solution that lowers your costs as it helps your at-risk members pivot away from chronic disease and towards optimal health.

Pivio for Health Plans

Health plans’ significant cost for chronic conditions

Chronic conditions are the leading drivers of the $4.1 trillion in annual healthcare costs in the United States. Chronic diseases are also the leading causes of illness, disability, and death in the United States.

As a health plan executive, you know the financial impact of chronic conditions. And you know the solution to reversing the trajectory of those costs is in behavior change.

Pivio is your partner for success and savings

On average, for every $1 invested in the Pivio program, organizations save $2 on medical claims costs. That’s the bottomline.

How do we get there? With a proven solution. Pivio is an immersive ecosystem of learning and support resources, utilizing a framework that is focused on the six key pillars of lifestyle medicine. It’s backed by more than 35 years of success and more than 40 peer-reviewed published research articles.

“When I started the Pivio program I was very overweight, discouraged, lonely and feeling somewhat hopeless about the rest of my life. Gradually, as I got immersed in the Pivio lessons, I began to realize how important it was to start caring about and valuing me. With that realization, it became easy to implement a new lifestyle, following the nutrition, exercise, stress management, sleep, and healthy habits guidance. My husband also began adopting my way of eating and was able to greatly decrease the inflammation causing many of his health issues, including rheumatoid arthritis and spinal issues. I have graduated from Pivio, but the things I have learned will always stay with me. My weight loss in just twelve weeks has been miraculous. I wake every morning feeling energized and happy to start a new day. It has been a wonderful journey.”
