A health management program has health coaches who help you better understand your disease or condition. They help you manage your health care and take better care of yourself. Your provider may talk with you about enrolling in one of these programs for better health. However, you can be enrolled in a health management program without a referral from your PCP or other provider.
UPMC for You has several health management programs:
