What is Chronic Care Coaching? 

The ultimate goal of the Chronic Care Coaching service is to help improve the health and wellness of our University community by assisting team members and their family* to be as healthy as they can be. UVA-WorkMed provides Chronic Care Coaching to assist UVA team members and their family manage chronic health conditions such as hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, morbid obesity as well as stress management with the goal of improving the person's health and well-being.  This service is a UVA Health System sponsored benefit for UVA team members (UVA HS, Academic, Foundation, UPG, etc.). There are no associated costs.

*UVA team members and their family do not have to be enrolled in the Aetna insurance plan. Please call to see if you are eligible for this program.
