WebMD Health Coaching



When the HQ online risk assessment identifies certain risk factors, HealthFlex offers health coaching services from WebMD to help you reduce these risks before they progress into more serious health problems. Health coaching is provided by telephone at no cost to HealthFlex participants and covered spouses in active plans—and is confidential.

Health coaching can address common risk factors, including:

  • high body mass index (BMI);
  • high blood sugar;
  • inactivity;
  • high blood pressure;
  • high cholesterol;
  • unbalanced nutrition habits;
  • emotional strain, such as depression or stress; and
  • smoking.

Health coaches are trained health care professionals—including dietitians, exercise physiologists and psychologists—who provide useful tips and feedback to help you develop a plan that works for you.

Coaching is always confidential—your participation in the program and any information you share with a health coach will not be disclosed to your employer, conference, insurance carrier, HealthFlex or Wespath Benefits and Investments.

WebMD Health Coaching is available to HealthFlex active plan participants only. To learn more about WebMD health coaching services or to start working with a health coach, call 1-866-302-5742, option 2. You must complete the HQ online risk assessment to be eligible for coaching.

Conference Staff: To learn how you can offer this program to the populations you serve, please contact the Center for Health.
