Vanderbilt Total Health and MyHealth Bundles

Your Vanderbilt Health Benefits

MNPS has partnered with Vanderbilt Health to offer you two innovative programs:

  • MyHealth Bundles offers world-class care for specific medical conditions using a no-cost-to-you, patient-centered approach.
  • Vanderbilt Total Health (VTH) gives you access to a nurse navigator who can guide you to the physical, mental, spiritual and emotional care that is best for your day-to-day needs. Dedicated solely to MNPS employees and their family members, your VTH nurse navigator can help you find care, answer your questions or guide you to helpful resources.

The Vanderbilt Total Health program is available to all MNPS employees, retirees and adult dependents, regardless of healthcare coverage. The MyHealth Bundles program is available to active MNPS employees and their dependents enrolled in the Certificated Employee Health Plan, as well as certificated retirees and their dependents under age 65 who are not yet eligible for Medicare and are enrolled in the Certificated Retiree Health Plan. See FAQs for the full VTH and MyHealth Bundles eligibility requirements.

    Vanderbilt Total Health FAQs

    How can I use Vanderbilt Total Health for my health care needs?

    Your VTH nurse navigator will guide you to the right level of care for your physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health needs. The nurse navigator serves as the point person for the VTH team. She can schedule an appointment for you to meet with a social worker or a spiritual health professional. She can also refer you to specialists or help you make an appointment with the MNPS clinics, a provider via telehealth, home care services, Vanderbilt Health specialists and more.

    How can a VTH social worker help me?

    The VTH social worker can help you strengthen coping skills and find effective solutions to life’s challenges. They can also help you find the source of stress or problems in your relationships, work or community life.

    The VTH social worker can provide short-term counseling or connect you to longer-term behavioral health care, connect to community resources to help you and your family meet your basic needs, and provide education on topics such as work/life balance, parenting, anxiety and depression, and substance use disorder.

    Who can use Vanderbilt Total Health?

    You may take advantage of Vanderbilt Total Health if you’re an MNPS employee, retiree or adult dependent. Spouses and dependents 18 years of age and up are eligible for the VTH program and may contact the nurse navigator directly to make appointments. Pediatric patients are currently not covered but plans to include them are being explored.

    How do I contact the VTH nurse navigator?

    For urgent needs: Call (615) 421–1711
    For non-urgent needs: Book an appointment

    Urgent needs are those that need to be treated soon to manage potential infection, pain and allergies, but are not life-threatening. Examples include bladder infections, cuts requiring stitches, dehydration, earaches, a rash, sore throat or congestion, or sports injuries.

    Non-urgent needs are less-immediate needs such as check-ups or physicals, vaccinations, health advice, medication refills or changes, referral to a specialist and routine tests. These appointments can be scheduled.

    Emergency care is for life-threatening issues such as chest pain, difficulty breathing or severe injury. For broken bones, head or eye injury, loss of consciousness, poisoning or overdose, severe abdominal pain, severe asthma or allergic reaction, severe burns or laceration, traumatic injury or other similar issues, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.

      MyOrthoHealth: Better Patient Experience With No Cost

      MNPS preschool teacher Natasha Massey will tell you: Not all hip and knee surgery experiences are created equal. When it came time to have her second knee-replacement surgery, she signed up for the MyHealth Bundles program, and she said it made all the difference in her care. “When I had this surgery done on my other knee, I was in another facility for two days, but at Vanderbilt it was outpatient surgery,” she says. “I literally walked the same day.”

      And that was just the start of her exceptional journey to better health. Not only was she able to return home the same day as her procedure, but the MyOrthoHealth bundle provided her with personalized, coordinated orthopedic care for 90 days and supplied all the medical equipment and physical therapy she needed to fully recover. Natasha admits she “was a little nervous about being an outpatient, but my care navigator and all the people at Vanderbilt made sure I was taken care of, and everything went smoothly.”

      Vanderbilt’s MyOrthoHealth bundle provides concierge service with a dedicated patient navigator, the most convenient inpatient and outpatient surgical options for bundled knee replacements in Middle Tennessee and physical therapy with no out-of-pocket costs.
