What is Vida Health?
Vida Health – or Vida – is an online and virtual care platform that offers personalized health coaching and therapy combined with digital therapeutic programs tailored to your own needs and health goals.
Vida offers personalized health programs to help you achieve your personal health goals, all through an easy-to-use mobile app that works on your smartphone or tablet.
With Vida Health, you get a program tailored to you and your health journey. When you sign up, you have the chance to share your health goals and preferences. Vida uses that information to build a program and experience from the ground up, just for you. The program includes a health coach (or therapist), easy progress-tracking through in-app trackers and connected devices, and helpful resources like videos, lessons, practices, recipes, and more — all aimed at helping you achieve better health, in a way that works for you.
Humana has partnered with Vida Health to extend your services as part of your Humana Healthy Horizons in Kentucky health plan at no additional cost to you.
Who is eligible for Vida health coaching through Humana?
Vida is available at no cost to Humana Healthy Horizons in Kentucky enrollees who are age 18 and over with prediabetes or who are “at risk” for diabetes.
What is prediabetes?
Prediabetes means having high blood sugar levels that can get worse and lead to type 2 diabetes if not treated. People “at risk” for developing diabetes also benefit from this program. Your family history, weight, age, activity levels, having diabetes while pregnant, and other factors may put you at risk for diabetes.
I have a non – Vida – related question about my plan, can you help me with that?
Please call Humana Customer Care line listed on the back of your Humana Medical ID card.
What kind of health coaching can I receive through Vida?
At Vida, we handpick the best coaches and health experts from across the country. Whether you’ve been told you have prediabetes, are “at risk” for developing diabetes, or want to develop healthy habits and stick to them, our coaches can support you at every stage of your health journey.
Can I participate if I have diabetes?
Sorry, but no. The program is designed for people who don’t yet have diabetes. Please call the number on the back of your health plan ID card to check your eligibility for other programs.
Can I select a preferred coaching style?
Absolutely. After you download the Vida Health app, you’ll be prompted to create an account and select your preferred program. Then, we’ll get you matched to a coach by collecting some inputs from you, including the coaching style you’d like, whether a cheerleader, drill sergeant, listener, or something else.
Can I change coaches if for some reason it doesn’t work out with my first coach?
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 that fits your style and goals best.
What happens to the information I provide to Vida?
All personal information that you share through Vida’s app is confidential and is securely stored in encrypted databases. Vida Health is fully HIPAA-compliant. If you wish to have your information deleted, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
