Overview

The Publicis Benefits Connection Healthy Living program offers you and your eligible spouse/domestic partner/civil union partner personalized health coaching from WebMD.

WebMD Health Coaches provide ongoing support people need to learn healthy habits, manage chronic conditions, and achieve well-being goals. With training and certifications in specific fields — such as nutrition, diabetes management or tobacco cessation — health coaches are matched with participants based on their individual needs.

Text-based health and wellness coaching, Coach Connect online messaging, and telephonic coaching are available, allowing participants to interact with Health Coaches in times and places that are most convenient for them.

How to Get Started

To participate in health coaching, you will need to complete the PBC Healthy Living Personal Health Assessment. To access the PHA, go to PBC Healthy Living.

Once you complete the PHA, you may receive directions for scheduling WebMD Health Coaching sessions, depending on your risk level. Your eligible spouse/domestic partner/civil union partner needs to complete his or her own Personal Health Assessment to take advantage of WebMD Health Coaching.
