Taking care of your health can be a daunting task, but with Independent Health, you have a community of support to guide you through it. Members have access to services and discounts that take some of the stress out of navigating your wellness goals. From nutrition and fitness to answers to your non-emergency health questions, Independent Health is always there for you.
Chat with a professional
When you have questions about your health, or a non-emergency medical concern and can’t reach your doctor, you have access to nurses who can give you answers and guide you to resources through our Online Nurse Chat or Medical Help Line. Both are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. An experienced registered nurse can offer advice on treating a child’s fever or minor injury, give information about heart disease, asthma or diabetes, and help you understand your symptoms, which will enable you to choose the right care.
Diabetes prevention programs
Independent Health offers two unique apps for members — Brook Health Companion and Brook+ — that help you get healthy and stay healthy. Brook provides one place where you can keep track of all the things that impact your health – like blood pressure and weight – to give you a more complete view of your health, while also setting reminders to take your medications as directed. Members also get access to a team of dietitians and health educators who provide support that is personalized to your unique health profile. Brook+ is a 12-month Diabetes Prevention Program that helps you lose weight and reduce your diabetes risk while building lasting healthy habits.
We all need a little extra incentive, whether that’s knocking down a fitness challenge or getting a shoutout on social media for your latest healthy dinner post. As a member of Independent Health, you have access to Fitworks, our free online wellness tool which can help you set and achieve your health and wellness goals. Whether you’re looking for extra motivation to keep you on track, or a fresh start to a healthier you, FitWorks has a little bit of everything for everyone.
