Personal Support and Information
Health Coaching can help you:
Healthways, an LM HealthWorks Plan partner, may call you to offer health coaching based on your claims history and responses to the Well-Being Assessment. The Care Navigator or your Care Advocate may also recommend Health Coaching to you, or you may decide to take advantage of this important service on your own. This free support is confidential and voluntary.
If you choose to participate, you’ll be paired with a personal health coach—a health educator, dietician, nurse or other trained professional, depending on your particular needs. Your health coach will work with you by telephone to review your health status, discuss your risks and suggest possible lifestyle changes. Together, you’ll set goals that consist of a series of small, manageable changes that you can commit to over time. Your coach may also provide educational materials by mail.
Most importantly, your health coach will stay in touch to track your progress, help you set or adjust your goals, and give you the encouragement you need to stay motivated.
