Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible for WellTheory? What conditions do you support?
WellTheory is available for free to employees, dependents 18+, and pre-65 retirees enrolled in an ____ medical plan with HP as their primary insurance. 

We specialize in helping anyone with autoimmune diagnosis or autoimmune-like symptoms on their healing journey. We've supported individuals with 50+ autoimmune conditions and counting.

To validate that you're a good fit for our program, you will complete a brief clinical questionnaire (~10 minutes). In some cases, we may determine you’re not able to join if your questionnaire or insurance information is incomplete, or if we're not able to support you from a clinical perspective. In those cases, we'll always try to refer you to other services that may better fit your needs.
How long do members typically work with their Care Team?
Our program lasts 12 months and is broken up into two 6-months phases: our Core and Maintain programs. The "Core" program is more intensive with twice a month live 30-minute calls with your care team, while our "Maintain" program is focused on maintaining your progress with once a month live 15-minute calls. This time period is long enough for most members to experience meaningful symptom reduction and build their knowledge and tools for managing their autoimmune condition(s) in the long term.
Who is on my Care Team?
Your dedicated Care Team includes a licensed registered dietitian, board-certified health coach, and a care coordinator. Think of your registered dietitian as your nutrition expert, your health coach as your behavior change buddy, and your care coordinator as your go-to for anything customer service-related.
Is there really no cost to join WellTheory? How?
Yes! WellTheory is covered through employers and health insurance plans, so there’s no cost to you. Get care when you need it—without the burden of copays and other hidden costs.
How do I get started?
Click here to join our program. You'll complete our intake process (~10 minutes) and get matched with your dedicated Care Team for an initial 60-minute in depth onboarding session.
Can I change coaches if it’s not a good fit?
Yes. Finding a coach you connect with is crucial to healing. While members rarely feel the need to switch coaches, we’ll work with you to connect you with the best possible match for you.
