Celebrating Men's Health Month with Ascend

Post Date - Jun 11, 2024

As Men's Health Month unfolds, it's a timely reminder for all men to take charge of their health and well-being. At Ascend, we're dedicated to supporting our employees in their journey towards better health, offering comprehensive benefits that prioritize preventive care and overall wellness. Here’s a rundown of how you can power your health with Ascend – this month and beyond.

Preventive Care: Your Path to Wellness

Preventive care is the cornerstone of good health. It's about taking proactive steps to detect and address health issues before they become serious. Regular check-ups, screenings, vaccinations, and healthy lifestyle choices are all part of preventive care. By staying on top of preventive care measures, you can reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases, improve your quality of life, and potentially avoid costly medical treatments down the road. 

At Ascend, we understand the importance of preventive care, which is why our health coverage for employees kicks in on day one. This ensures you have access to essential medical, dental, and vision care starting the first month after your start date, providing you with a sense of security and peace of mind.

Convenient Healthcare Access with Telemedicine

Telemedicine refers to the remote delivery of healthcare services through telecommunications technology, such as video conferencing, phone calls, or mobile apps. This service has become increasingly popular after the COVID-19 pandemic. It allows patients to consult with healthcare professionals from their homes, offering a convenient and flexible way to access healthcare. Telemedicine offers numerous benefits, including increased access to healthcare for individuals in remote or underserved areas, reduced travel time and costs, and greater convenience for patients with busy schedules. It also enables timely consultations, particularly for minor ailments or follow-up appointments, contributing to improved health outcomes. It can also lead to more personalized and efficient healthcare delivery. 

In today's fast-paced world, accessing quality, consistent, affordable, and convenient healthcare can be challenging. That's why Ascend offers telemedicine services, giving you and your eligible dependents 24/7/365 access to physicians via phone or online video. With reduced co-pays, you can receive prompt medical care from the comfort of your own home.

Enhanced Benefits Tailored to Your Needs

In addition to our core benefits, Ascend provides a range of enhanced benefits to meet your unique needs. From voluntary life insurance for employees, spouses, and dependents to short-term and long-term disability coverage, non-work accident coverage, critical care coverage, and hospital indemnity coverage, we're here to ensure you and your family are protected in every situation.

Doing More for Your Personal Well-Being

Health extends far beyond physical well-being, encompassing various aspects of our lives. Mental and emotional health, social connections, and overall happiness all play vital roles in our well-being. Mental health involves managing stress, emotions, and psychological well-being, while social health relates to our relationships and sense of belonging in communities. Emotional health encompasses our ability to cope with life's challenges and maintain a positive outlook. 

We believe that a supportive work environment is paramount to promoting all sorts of personal health. Ascend provides comprehensive Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) designed to address various aspects of well-being, including mental health support, counseling services, financial planning assistance, identity theft protection, and will preparation. We're committed to making your work life better in every way possible.

This Men's Health Month, take the opportunity to prioritize your well-being. Whether it's scheduling your annual check-up, taking charge of health concerns, or making lifestyle changes to get you on the road to healthier living, we're here to support you on your journey.

At Ascend, your health matters to us, and we're committed to helping you thrive both personally and professionally.
