HealthPlan USA Helped Save Me From A Stroke

“I am in partnership with HealthPlan USA and they have provided me with compensation for this campaign. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.”


I was lying in bed asleep at 3a.m. the morning of the Motivated Mom Retreat.  I was tossing and turning quite a bit and felt that I could not relax.  I turned on my back because my left arm started going numb, which I thought was due to me laying on it.  Some time later, I felt a lot of pain in my left shoulder and my arm started tingling so I sat straight up in the bed.  I was shaking my arm trying to easy the numbness, but it wasn’t working.  I knew something was very wrong.  I grabbed my blood pressure wrist monitor to find my blood pressure at 197/154, I was at risk of a stroke.

I was terrified and needed immediate help and my doctor’s office was closed, so I opened my Health Advocate app from my HealthPlan USA and phoned a nurse.  Once I told her how high my pressure was, she found the nearest Urgent Care. She even checked to ensure that they were in-network.  I have to admit, I did not care about the costs at the time but I am so glad HealthPlan USA had me covered.




After spending a few hours at Urgent Care, I was released and able to get back to my Retreat.  I was told to take it easy and get plenty of rest.  As hard as it was to miss a lot of the opening day activities, I only conducted one interview and went back to my room to rest.

What’s interesting is my Retreat was happening during the same weekend as the official launch.  Yup, HealthPlan USA launched during the Congressional Black Caucus 48th Annual Legislative Conference at the premier kick-off event by co-sponsoring the annual, invitation-only Girl’s Night Out Reception. In addition, HealthPlan USA participated in several other events and was featured in various media, during launch week that created awareness about its new service.
