All Gold Coast Health Plan (GCHP) members are required to have a Staying Healthy Assessment (SHA) within 120 days of enrollment. The SHA can help providers identify high-risk behavior, set priorities for behavior change and refer patients for appropriate services.
Below is a current schedule and protocol for administering the SHA tool.
GCHP members will be asked to fill out the age/language specific Staying Healthy Assessment form at your Initial Health Assessment (IHA), within 120 days of enrollment or well-care visits at your office.
Staying Healthy Assessment
Self-administer. Reviewed, dated and initialed by PCP annually thereafter.
Self-administered, every three to five years up through age 55.
After age 65, self-administer per recommendation by PCP.
A complete set of SHA forms is available at www.dhcs.ca.gov.
