My Health Onsite’s Wellness Programs Put Patients in Control of Their Goals!

Services available for employees, retirees, spouses & dependents covered under the District's Florida Blue medical plan.


Each wellness program is tailored to the specific needs and interests of the patient. Once enrolled by their provider, the patient will work one-on-one with their health coach to come up with Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely (S.M.A.R.T.) goals. Coaching sessions last approximately 40 minutes each. The time to complete each program will vary.
