Prescription for Wellness

Doctor prescribed, health coach supported, you directed

UPMC Health Plan wants to help you help your employees and their families. With our nationally unique Prescription for Wellness, companies create a culture of health and better manage rising medical, disability, and workers’ compensation costs.

Using Prescription for Wellness, a doctor writes a prescription to meet telephonically with a UPMC Health Plan health coach. The coach can educate, guide, motivate and support your employee and family to:

  • Lose weight.
  • Get more active.
  • Quit smoking
  • Reduce stress.
  • Manage a chronic health condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol.
  • Make better decisions about potential surgery(ies).

UPMC Health Plan members across western Pennsylvania are getting real results. Create a workplace culture of health and wellness with Prescription for Wellness. To learn more about Prescription for Wellness, read our Employer Overview Sheet or contact your Group Health and Wellness Account Manager.
