What is Vida Health?
Vida Health offers personalized health programs and one-on-one coaching through an easy-to-use mobile app. With Vida Health, you get an end-to-end program completely tailored to you and your goals. When you sign up, you have the chance to share your health goals and preferences. We use this to build a program from the ground up, just for you. The program includes your own expert health coach, easy progress-tracking, and helpful resources like videos, recipes, and more — all aimed at helping you achieve better health, in a way that works for you.

A chronic condition is not necessary to participate in Vida. Whether you are looking to lose weight, get in shape, manage stress, prevent diabetes, or work toward another health goal, we have expert health coaches available to help.
Can I change coaches/therapists if it doesn’t work out with my first coach/therapist for some reason?
Absolutely. To request a change, go to the Home screen in your Vida app, tap the gear icon in the upper right, then tap Request New Coach. You’ll complete a brief survey so we can match you with a new coach or therapist that’s a good fit for your style and goals.
Who can participate in Vida’s mental health programs?
Any registered member! Life is full of everyday ups and downs and most everyone feels anxious or stressed from time to time. All of us can benefit from positive mental health practices.
Whether you’re looking to better handle stress, build your resilience to bounce back from whatever life throws your way, overcome depression or anxiety or work toward another mental health goal, we have expert health coaches and licensed therapists available to help.
Our stress resilience and stress management programs equip you with tools and practices to meet and embrace the ups and downs that come your way. And our licensed therapists use proven cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to help you deal with life’s challenges.
Mental Health Prescribing

How often will I meet with my Prescriber?
You will have an initial consultation with your Prescriber to assess your medication needs and will have a follow-up visit to review progress. Additional visits beyond these two are dependent on your situation and can be scheduled as needed. You also have the option to message your prescriber on an unlimited basis.
Can I communicate with my Prescriber outside of a scheduled appointment?
Yes! You will be able to send messages to your prescriber at any time. Response times from providers are usually within 1-2 days, but often the same day.

If you have any questions about cost, please reach out directly to your insurance company or pharmacy for specific details about your specific policy and the cost of prescription.
What types of medications can be prescribed?
Vida providers can prescribe antidepressant and anti-anxiety medications. These medicines are well-studied, widely available, and affordable.
What happens if my pharmacy is unable to process or refill my prescription?
