About us

This blog, or digital magazine, is your guide to living a balanced life. HAP Balanced Living is filled with the latest health and wellness news, tips and answers to your questions by HAP experts, as well as helpful ideas to improve your well-being. HAP Balanced Living is separated into four main areas:

  • Get moving. Whether you need help to simply take more steps in the day or want to learn how to train for a 5K, HAP Balanced Living helps you get moving.
  • Get healthy. HAP helps you get healthier, whether it be integrating more healthful foods, reducing different types of stress in your life or providing tactics to improve your mental well-being.
  • Get involved. Join us in the community or learn about HAP member-exclusive events. 
  • Get to know your plan. Learn about HAP plans, member-exclusive discounts and other perks to help you get the most out of your health care dollars.

You'll also hear from actual HAP members and members of our local community who will share inspirational stories about their personal health triumphs.
