Hypertension

Hypertension:  Learn the importance of routine home blood pressure monitoring in combination with medication, diet and exercise compliance to prevent long-term health complications.  
                                              
The hurdles this program discusses are:
  • Having a blood pressure cuff and knowing how to use it.
  • Having a prescription for medications for your high blood pressure.
  • Knowing how to limit your sodium to 2000mg or less per day.
  • Having a regular exercise routine.
  • Knowing what special lab work you need and how often you should have it.
  • Goal blood pressure <140/90 (<130/80 if diabetic) or moving toward that goal.
 
Along with hypertension-related office visit co-payment reimbursement, you can have the cost of a blood pressure monitor (up to $55.00) reimbursed to you when you reach all of the hurdles of this program. After 6 months of uninterrupted compliance with your treatment plan and you could be eligible for hypertension prescription co-payment reimbursements, too.
