Whether you’re looking to reduce stress, lose a few pounds, start eating a healthier diet or quit smoking, no-cost health coaching can help you establish a personal wellness plan and stick to it.

HOW IT WORKS
Employees and their family members who participate in the Firm’s Medical Plan through Cigna or UnitedHealthcare may work with a health coach for help with nutrition, weight management, stress or tobacco cessation, at no cost to you. You can also take advantage of targeted programs including:

  • Cigna’s Weight Management Program combines online resources and personalized telephonic coaching to help members create personalized action plans that combine both diet and fitness-centered approaches to achieve weight loss goals. Discounts to Jenny Craig are also available.
  • UnitedHealthcare’s Healthy Weight Program leverages online and telephonic coaching resources to assist members in crafting personalized action plans designed to meet their weight management goals, with a special focus on fitness and nutrition planning.
  • Cigna’s Quit Today Program and UnitedHealthcare’s Quit Power Program, provided to you and your covered dependents at no additional cost. Programs include:
    • One-on-one telephone sessions with a wellness coach
    • Nicotine replacement therapy for qualified members
    • Unlimited access to online cessation planning resources

AN EXTRA INCENTIVE TO QUIT SMOKING

The available Medical Plan annual discount is $500 for you and an additional $500 for your covered spouse or domestic partner. To be eligible for the discount, you must either be tobacco-free or enroll in a tobacco-cessation program. Rates for the Employee Supplemental Life Insurance Plan are also discounted for nonusers of tobacco.
