Seniors Can Talk to a Health Coach

From senior fitness programs and discounts, to finding the right course of treatment, a coach from the CDPHP® Health Ally™ program can help you with personalized, one-on-one support.*

Medicare Choices members and their caregivers can get support, education and help navigating member benefits and community-based services through this complimentary program. Our Health Ally coaches will walk you through the many wellness options we offer and, if you have a serious health condition, you may be guided in establishing an ongoing relationship with a specially trained health professional who can help you.

A Health Ally coach can help you:

  • Find providers of care.
  • Locate community and government programs that can help you.
  • Identify local support groups, caregiver resources, and respite care.
  • Assist you with disease-specific education.
  • Coordinate home care.
  • Help with pharmacy benefit assistance.
  • Locate transportation.
  • Tell you about CDPHP programs and benefits available to you.
