LifeMap and Wildflower Health Team Up to Offer Financial Wellness to Expectant Mothers


Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) February 03, 2015

Wildflower Health, a leader in enterprise mobile health programs, and LifeMap Assurance Company, an insurance provider offering group life, disability and individual short term medical coverage, have teamed up to launch the smartphone pregnancy app LifeMap Due Date Plus to expectant parents with short term disability coverage.

Maternity care is the top short term disability claim LifeMap processes each year. Due Date Plus offers a needed service to pregnant LifeMap members by providing helpful resources, and identifying risks that could lead to delivery complications. Specifically, LifeMap Due Date Plus offers: pregnancy milestone tracking, health tips, the ability to monitor troublesome symptoms, and set financial reminders such as applying for disability benefits, adding dependent coverage, and more.

The LifeMap Due Date Plus program launched in both the iTunes and Google Play stores to help LifeMap short term disability members have a healthier pregnancy and delivery. Within the program they can learn more about their additional LifeMap benefits, including dental care and life insurance coverage, at a time that’s relevant to them.

“There’s a lot to keep track of during pregnancy. LifeMap Due Date Plus gives our expectant members with short term disability coverage the tools they need to experience a healthier and happier pregnancy experience,” said LifeMap CEO Beth Andersen. “We’re also pleased to offer these members a tool that can help them with their overall financial well-being.”

“By helping pregnant women and their partners map their pregnancy milestones and track their progress with tools and tips, the program presents benefits in the context of issues as they arise during pregnancy,” said Leah Sparks, CEO of Wildflower Health. “We are excited to launch this program, configured to highlight the ancillary benefits LifeMap offers.”

Maternity and newborn care is a top cost driver of hospital charges, costing more than $ 100 billion a year, according to the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. With one in eight babies born prematurely, many born early due to lack of proper prenatal care, Due Date Plus assists expectant mothers with an on-the-go resource to help encourage healthy nutrition and exercise and receive timely reminders that promote financial wellness and more.

“After researching other tools in the market, LifeMap chose Wildflower Health as a partner because of their high engagement rates and their ability to pinpoint useful information for expectant mothers,” said Andersen. “LifeMap is consistently seeking ways to provide innovative tools to members, and it was really exciting to partner with a company offering support at such an important time in our members’ lives.”

Three Fit Body Boot Camp Locations Offer Workouts in exchange for Food Drive Donations, November 17 – 22


Upland, CA (PRWEB) November 07, 2014

The Sweat for a Cause Food Drive is an initiative focused on collecting Thanksgiving Dinner supplies for families with monetary needs or barriers that keep them from enjoying the traditional family feast. The staff at the Upland, Glendora, and Ontario Boot Camps recognizes that, while the community may have numerous families that are “blessed and affluent,” there remains “too many people in [their] community that won’t have food or families to celebrate Thanksgiving with.”

These fitness experts, however, have come up with their own incentivizing twist on the traditional food drive donation format. While donating will provide charitable community members with the satisfaction of helping and uplifting others with needs, the Fitness Boot Camp staffs are providing their own services for free to those who gift local families with foodstuffs.

The exchange format is simple: one non-perishable food item for one free workout session. They will also be accepting monetary donations, with a $ 10 charitable contribution exchanging for the same free workout. They invite those interested to come donate and workout an unlimited number of times From November 17th through the 22nd.

The owner of these Fit Body Boot Camp locations, Leandro Cabico, explains a bit about the motivation behind his business’s initiative and his passion for helping the community: “At Fit Body Boot Camp Upland, Glendora, and Ontario, we’re not only committed to helping the local community live healthier lives, make better food choices, and exercise in pursuit of results, but we’re also heartily committed to being active members of the community when it comes to helping those that are less fortunate.

All proceeds will be donated to the Foothill Family Shelter, where it will be distributed throughout the community and assist those who need it most. For more information regarding the program and details about locations, workout schedules, donations, those interested can visit the Upland, Glendora, and Ontario websites.

“This will be a memorable holiday for so many people that have much less than we do,” says Cabico, “how great will it feel to know that you are part of their happiness this holiday season? Let’s make the lives of the less fortunate folks a little brighter… and burn some extra calories and inches while at it!”

About Ontario, Upland, and Glendora Fit Body Boot Camps:

These three Fit Body Boot Camp locations are a part of the Fit Body Boot Camp family of indoor fitness boot camps, whose global goal is to engage 20% of the world’s population in a healthy and fit lifestyle by the year 2020.
