Living Healthier Hotline Helps to Change Lives

Living Healthier is a toll-free service -- offered through the Texas-based nonprofit organization It’s Time Texas and funded in part by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas -- available to anyone by calling 1 (844) 262-6224. Living Healthier coaches take calls in English and Spanish, weekdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT. Clients may call as often as they like and there is never a charge.

Coaches help clients achieve success by getting to know them through frequent phone conversations and learning about their goals. Clients receive education and encouragement needed to achieve their healthier goals or manage chronic care issues, like COPD (Chronic Obstructive and Pulmonary Disease) or Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).

Two examples highlighting the positive impact of the Living Healthier coaching hotline are clients Sam and Sandra. Sam and Sandra both wanted to make healthier choices, get more exercise and lose some weight. They spoke with Living Healthier coaches and received the support they needed to make positive changes.
