Are you trying to make a healthy change in your life? UPMC Health Plan members can get one-on-one support from a health coach through our nationally acclaimed MyHealth program at no cost!
Whether you want to change your lifestyle or manage a condition that has changed your life, a health coach can help. Our health coaches are registered dietitians, nurses, certified diabetes counselors, smoking cessation counselors, or licensed social workers. They will work with you to set goals and find the best ways to help you reach them.
You can work with a health coach over the phone or online to:
- Lose weight.
- Quit using tobacco.
- Eat healthier.
- Manage your stress.
- Become more physically active.
If you have a chronic health condition like diabetes, asthma, or depression, health coaches can help you with that too. Our condition management programs are designed to help you:
- Understand your condition.
- Identify and manage your symptoms.
- Understand your treatment options.
- Develop plans for taking medications and following your doctor's advice.
Everyone has different challenges. Your health coach will help you identify and tackle yours and get you on the road to better health.
