Alternative Care and Wellness

You can save up to 30 percent on popular complementary and alternative medicine services and fitness centers through our partnership with the Healthways WholeHealth Network, which has more than 43,000 providers.

This program delivers immediate discounts without the hassle of complicated claims forms. You don't need a referral to visit a practitioner in the Healthways network – but you should talk with your primary care doctor about any treatment you're thinking about getting. If you're already seeing holistic professionals who are not on the Healthways list, you can ask that they be added to the network.

Member Health Support

Health Republic Insurance of New York believes that individuals who are empowered – with knowledge about their own health, the preventive services they need, the tools to manage chronic conditions, and available community resources – is what health reform is all about. For that reason, we've built an extensive health support program.

To start, we encourage our members to browse through our vast health information library. Here's the place to learn about health tips, research signs and symptoms, or simply satisfy your curiosity about all things clinical.


We're here to make it easier for you to navigate health services.

If you can't find the time to read up on things, don't worry. We can send reminders about important preventive screenings, needed appointments, and tips on how to stay well.

You'll also have access to our Wellness Navigators, who will provide guidance on using your healthcare benefits and explain the benefits of selecting and establishing a relationship with your primary physician to better coordinate your care.
