Health Net offers a variety of health promotion programs – both online and over the telephone – to help you gain and maintain a healthier lifestyle. These six-week programs are packed with information and support for numerous health-related topics that include:

  • tobacco cessation (quitting smoking)
  • nutrition
  • weight loss
  • physical activity
  • stress management

Wellness health coaching program
To ensure a complete health and wellness experience for our members, the health promotion program process uses successful one-on-one coaching techniques.

And, through our wellness health coaching program, Health Net members have unlimited access to an experienced health coach for six months. This allows for ongoing expertise and individual support to assist you with reaching goals and incorporating positive healthy behaviors into your daily life.

Plus, to help keep you on track, action plans with specific incremental goals are created to help you overcome any barriers that may exist. Your health coach will also help you identify motivators to improve your confidence and to sustain long-term behavior change.

Quit For Life
If you’re looking to quit smoking for good, the Quit For Life telephonic tobacco cessation program is for you. Quit For Life offers Health Net members one-on-one support with a quit coach. Together, you and your coach will address your readiness to change and your motivation for quitting. Best of all, your coach will be your personal support system for success.

Once you enroll, you will be eligible to receive four calls from your quit coach, and have unlimited calls to your coach. Besides having the support of a quit coach, you will have access to online learning modules, discussion forums, progress trackers, and a chat function with online coaches.

The entire Quit For Life Program includes:

  • quitting at your own pace – choose a quit date and prepare to quit
  • conquering your urges to smoke – learn how and when urges to smoke occur and how to cope with them. And, learn how to manage stress without smoking
  • using quit medicines that really work – get help selecting an appropriate tobacco cessation aid, either over-the-counter or prescription
  • becoming a true non-smoker – don’t just quit, make this the last quit, and manage your weight during the quitting process
