Heart Health Resources

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, but it is preventable and treatable with the right care. Morgan Stanley has a wealth of programs and resources to help you reduce your risk for heart disease — by managing stress levels, losing weight, quitting smoking, exercising more and eating a healthier diet — and manage any current heart conditions:

Health Coaching Programs

Virtual health coaching is available at no cost to you through the Firm’s Medical Plan. A coach will help you set goals (nutrition, weight management, fitness, stress management, smoking cessation, etc.) and give you the tools and support you need to achieve them. Onsite health coaching is available at the NYC and Westchester onsite health centers. Learn More

Chronic Condition Management (UnitedHealthcare and Cigna)

UnitedHealthcare and Cigna’s condition management teams are available to provide resources and clinical guidance for many chronic conditions, including heart disease. Your nurse will guide you in selecting in-network health care providers and facilities, educate you on your health conditions and provide assistance with treatment options and emergency decision support. Click here or call UnitedHealthcare or Cigna for more information.

Congenital Heart Disease Resource Services (UnitedHealthcare)

A comprehensive set of services, including access to the nation’s top Congenital Heart Disease centers, is available to you through specialized Congenital Heart Disease nurses. They provide disease and treatment education and intensive case management through all stages of treatment and recovery to help you make informed decisions about your treatment options and improve your health care experience. Call UnitedHealthcare for more information.

Expert Medical Second Opinions

Second opinions aren’t just for when you receive a troubling diagnosis. Whether you need help understanding your condition or treatment plan, want new insight into how to better manage a chronic condition or have questions about your diagnosis, the confidential second opinion service will enlist leading specialists across the country to independently assess your medical situation.

NewYork-Presbyterian Health Navigator

Employees and their families in the tristate area (New York, New Jersey and Connecticut) have priority access to NY-Presbyterian hospital services and a physician referral program. Speak confidentially with a physician referral coordinator about your medical needs. At no cost to you, the coordinator will recommend an in-network physician, including cardiologists and health care professionals (you may also request to see out-of-network providers, if you choose). The coordinator can even schedule an appointment for you. Learn More

Counseling & Support

From managing our work, to family and personal commitments, life keeps us on our toes. But sometimes, we can all use a little help, especially when it comes to managing stress. Humana provides confidential short-term counseling 24/7 from licensed professionals – over the phone or in person, whatever works best for you – when you’re experiencing difficulties in your identifiable personal or professional life. Employees and their immediate family members can each speak with a counselor up to five times per year, per topic. Services are completely confidential and your personal information will never be shared with Morgan Stanley. Learn More
