Motivating Mississippi-Keys to Living Healthy

Motivating Mississippi - Keys to Living Healthy


Motivating Mississippi – Keys to Living Healthy is the State and School Employees’ Health Insurance Plan’s wellness and preventative health program. Working with ActiveHealth Management, the Plan’s health management vendor, we are dedicated to providing Plan participants with the tools and resources to help them lead healthier lives.

The program’s goal is to improve the quality of life for participants by encouraging healthy lifestyle choices through a wide variety of free resources including the MyActiveHealth website which is designed to help participants keep important health information – like medical history and future doctor’s appointments – in one handy place.

To support efforts to involve all participants in the program, each employer has a dedicated site champion who coordinates with ActiveHealth to provide wellness activities for their workplace. Site champions believe in the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and strive to engage their coworkers to do the same. Listed below are resources available to participants and site champions through Motivating Mississippi – Keys to Living Healthy.
