Cleveland Clinic Lifestyle Essentials

Cleveland Clinic Lifestyle Essentials shared medical appointments can help you improve your health and well-being through lifestyle changes. You may be eligible to join us for our series of six appointments, held every other week, if you have a diagnosis of:

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol/high triglycerides)

Will I have to leave my primary care physician?

No, you will keep your own primary care physician and healthcare team. During the program, lifestyle medicine physicians will work with your primary care team to focus on the lifestyle related aspects of your condition.

Are Cleveland Clinic Lifestyle Essentials shared medical appointments covered by insurance?

Shared medical appointments are covered by most insurance plans. Participants are responsible for insurance copays for each appointment and for a one-time charge for materials.
