from a Personal Health Coach.
Staying committed to health and wellness isn’t always easy. Sometimes you need a little guidance—someone to help you set goals, inspire you to reach them, and hold you accountable when you just don’t feel like making healthy choices.
As an OSU Health Plan member, you have access to free personal health coaching from a trained health professional. You will work with your coach to develop an action plan and strategies personalized for your specific health needs. Your coach will support you through regular phone sessions, and when needed, connect you to community resources to assist in your journey to better health.
All benefits-eligible faculty and staff and medical-plan-enrolled adult dependents are eligible for health coaching services. Participating in the Personal Health Coaching Program is completely voluntary and confidential. Only the OSU Health Plan, the home of the health coaches, will have access to your records.
