Health Coaches

Whether you want to change your lifestyle or manage a health problem that has changed your life, a health coach can help. Your health coach can help you make a plan and stick with it until you succeed.

How are you trying to improve your health? Maybe you’d like to quit smoking, lose weight, eat healthier, get active, or build lower back strength. Or maybe you’re working with your doctor to get control of a chronic condition like diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol. You may feel like you could use some help to improve your mood — whether that means managing everyday stress or battling depression, anxiety, or substance use.

Your health coach can support your work on any of these goals, and more. Call 1-866-778-6073 to talk with a health coach about how you can get started on the change that’s important to you.

You can also take advantage of these UPMC Health Plan programs and services:
