There is nothing so personal as your health history, and we are serious about protecting your information and privacy. While participating in Y P 4 H, the personal information you provide, whether online or in person, is only available to you and those you authorize to access it. Beyond the team at the OSU Health Plan, your nurse, health coach, or your own PCP, no other Ohio State personnel will see your results.
Your Plan for Health (YP4H) Accessibility
We have diligently worked to ensure that the Your Plan for Health (YP4H) website is seamlessly accessible to people with disabilities.
Some portions of the site, however, will present difficulties for screen reader users: some of the controls for the goals and challenges in the "My Plan" page and in the pages that individually detail the Challenges. We are working to address these problems and expect full accessibility by the second quarter in 2014.
In the meantime, assistance is available to support participants with disabilities who have difficulty accessing information, navigating, or submitting information to the YP4H website.
- Call 800-380-9099, Monday through Friday, 7am to 7pm.
- E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org at all times.
You can typically expect a 24-hour turnaround period with a two-business-day turnaround time on weekends.
We welcome your feedback at email@example.com as we progress toward full access for all YP4H participants.
