The Virtual Vitality Health Check-in is a telephonic or online consultation with a wellness specialist designed to help manage existing health risks, potentially identify new health risks and recommend ways to improve your health and wellness.
What is the Virtual Vitality Health Check-in?
The Virtual Vitality Health Check-in is a 20-minute online consultation that uses your Vitality Age information, previous Vitality Health Check results and other available information to help you:
- Eat more healthily
- Improve fitness
- Improve mental wellbeing
- Suggest appropriate referrals for any potential risks
- Identify COVID-19 risks, benefits and steps to limit exposure
- And more
If you are over the age of 65, the consultation will also help:
- Identify falls risk
Earn 2 500 Vitality points on completion of the Virtual Vitality Health Check-in if you have not yet done your in - person Vitality Health Check. These points count towards the maximum 22 500 points you can earn for a Vitality Health Check. However, if you do your Virtual Vitality Health Check-in after completing an in-person Vitality Health Check, you will not earn 2 500 points.
You can schedule your appointment conveniently online. You will receive detailed instructions to help you set up and prepare for the virtual consultation once you have booked.
