Health challenges getting too challenging? Free health coach can help with your game plan and earn you $75

If you’re ready to make healthy changes in your life, a free Medica health coach can help. Health coaches support you in overcoming barriers, creating action plans and finding the inner strength you need to win big through better health.

In addition to better health, you’ll also receive a $75 gift card from Medica when you complete the entire coaching program, and you’ll earn 100 points for your Medica scorecard when you complete at least two calls with a Medica health coach by Aug. 31.  You must accept your invitation for health coaching or call to request a coach by June 30 in order to be eligible to earn 100 points. When you earn 300 points toward your Medica scorecard by Aug. 31, you’ll get a discount on your 2015 health insurance premiums. (In 2014, savings averaged $400 a year for a single person and $1,200 a year for a family.)  

Health and wellness coaching is available to all City of Minneapolis medical plan members who are at least 18 years old. You might be invited to participate in health coaching by Medica based on your medical experience or responses to the online Personal Health Profile. Even if you are not contacted directly by Medica, you can still participate in health coaching by calling Medica at 1-866-905-7430.  

Health coaches can help you with any area of health and wellness.  When you work with a coach, you direct the conversations and make your own decisions.  The coach is there to support and guide you. Any information you share is kept completely confidential.
