CarePlus Health Plans, Inc. and Sharecare have collaborating together to make it easier for CarePlus Medicare Advantage members across Florida to take an active role in improving their health. CarePlus Health Plans is Florida’s largest Medicare Advantage plan, and will allow all CarePlus Medicare Advantage plans now offer access to Sharecare. Members can also use Sharecare to track and redeem CarePlus Rewards for completing certain healthy activities. The CarePlus Rewards program is offered to members free of charge.
Sharecare has been a growing digital health company that helps people manage all their health in one place. Sharecare’s digital health experience, which includes an easy-to-use mobile app, enables CarePlus members to go from assessment to action. The digital experience starts with the RealAge® test, Sharecare’s clinically validated health risk assessment that shows members the true age of their bodies. It then provides personalized action plans to guide and educate members on health factors that may impact longevity and real-time tracking of daily health goals.
What’s the RealAge Test? It’s a unique calculation of your body’s health age. The test was created by top doctors, including Dr. Oz and Dr. Mike Roizen, and is powered by the latest medical research. The RealAge test has been taken by more than 45 million people. The scientifically-based assessment shows you the true age of the body you’re living in – the first step towards improving your well-being. The RealAge test is an extremely comprehensive longevity calculator. The questions dig deep into your health and medical history, which, in turn, provides more accurate results. The test is split into four sections: health, feelings, diet, and fitness.
It takes about 20 minutes to complete, which is longer than other longevity calculators. After completing the test, your RealAge results appear on the next page. Results also include a list of personalized recommendations for each of the test’s four sections. These tips on health, feelings, diet, and fitness are meant to improve your lifestyle. The comprehensive lifestyle recommendations included in the results are unparalleled, and could actually impact your real age. These recommendations include everything from watching your blood pressure, to expanding your social circle, to eating more fruits and vegetables, to doing more flexibility exercises. Not only do these tips explain what you need to do; they also explain why you need to do them. They also contain links to helpful resources that will help you make the changes, such as quick exercises and high-energy meals to start the day.

Sharecare’s Value for CarePlus Health Plans
In August 2020, Sharecare and the Boston University School of Public Health (SPH) released their next-generation Community Well-Being Index (CWBI) state rankings report, constructing 10 years of well-being measurement through the integration of key social determinants of health data. Collectively, the multi-dimensional layering and analysis Sharecare formulated for the CWBI in collaboration with SPH and its Biostatistics and Epidemiology Data Analytics Center (BEDAC) has reportedly resulted in the most expansive, diversified, and dynamic well-being index in the industry.
