We believe no one should ever be defined by the illness they are experiencing, whether temporary or chronic. That’s why we offer a range of programs and resources to help you best manage your health.
PATH Programs for Living Better with Chronic Illness

Help you understand your condition.
Improve your discussions about your health and safety with your doctors.
Show you how to make lifestyle changes that will keep your condition under good control.

Integrative Wellness Programs
Achieve better health and wellness with programs that combine the art of healing with the science of medicine. For EmblemHealth, "integrative" relates to a multifaceted approach to wellness — essentially, to approaches that raise awareness of the connection between the mind and the body. They assert that the art of healing and the science of medicine can work together to help every individual achieve better health and wellness.
The Integrative Wellness department offers individuals enrolled in one of our plans, as well as the diverse communities within EmblemHealth’s primary service area, innovative evidence-based programs that promote healthy living, advance better health outcomes and enhance quality of life.
