What does myWEIGHTcoach and myHEALTHcoach offer me when I am participating and how does it work?

MyWEIGHTcoach & myHEALTHcoach are two online course offers which will support you in reducing your weight or to help implement a healthy diet into your everyday life. The courses accompany you over several weeks and help you to change your diet to a healthy and sustainable one. Every week, you will find contents which are processed consecutively in an exciting way via short texts, videos or interactive elements. These will help you to get used to a new eating behaviour.

For whom is myWEIGHTcoach and myHEALTHcoach?

The myWEIGHTcoach course is targeted for adults (over 18 years) who would like to reduce their weight. Because this is a prevention course, your BMI (Boday-Mass-Index) should be under 30. If your BMI is over 30, then you should talk to your doctor before you participate in myWEIGHTcoach. The myHEALTHcoach course is targeted for adults (over 18 years) who like to have a healthy and balanced diet, especially in everyday working life. Because this is a prevention course, your BMI (Body-Mass-Index) should be below 30. If your BMI is above 30, then you should consult your doctor before participating in myHEALTHcoach. If you have pre-existing illnesses like diabetes mellitus type 2, food allergies or an eating disorder, then you cannot participate in myWEIGHTcoach or myHEALTHcoach because we cannot consider pre-existing illnesses in the courses. Additionally, the online courses are not meant for minors, pregnant women or breastfeeding mothers.

Do I get a dietary plan, to which I would have to cook and eat accordingly?

No, you do not get a ready dietary plan from us. The strategy of myWEIGHTcoach and myHEALTHcoach is to show you ways to healthy eating behaviour which can be integrated into your everyday life. A strict dietary plan is rigid and inflexiable, it does not adjust itself to your everyday life and is therefore not helpful. However, you will find a wide range of offers of delicious recipes under myRecipes. This way, you can implement the suggestions of myWEIGHTcoach and myHEALTHcoach.

How long does participation in myWEIGHTcoach and myHEALTHcoach take?

myWEIGHTcoach accompanies you over a period of ten weeks, in which you learn how to re-organize your diet with a new strategy in order to reduce your weight and to keep your reduced weight for the long-term. myHEALTHcoach informs you over a period of 8 weeks how you can eat healthy and balanced at work in order to stay fit and efficient.

How much do the myWEIGHTcoach and myHEALTHcoach courses cost?

You are a member of the VIACTIV, hkk Krankenkasse, TUI BKK, BKK Salzgitter, BKK Public, energie BKK or the BKK KBA? Then your health insurance company undertakes the cost and you can participate in the online courses for free. You are not member of the aforementioned health insurance company? No problem, then you can participate as well, of course! The participation in one course costs 89,- Euro. If you participated regularly and therefore completed the course successfully, then you can hand in your participation certificate at your health insurance company and you get reimbursed for the costs. You will read how this works further below.

How does Registration and Payment function?

Step 1: First you will enter your information, such as name, address, health insurance, insurance number, as well as gender and email address.

Step 2: Next you’ll input your weight and height, and will be asked whether you have any illnesses, or other states such as pregnancy. When such is the case, neither myWEIGHTcoach nor myHEALTHcoach is suitable.

Step 3: Now you’ll be able to create your username and password for your login. Please make sure your password is comprised of at least 6 characters. For security reasons, you should use both small and capital letters, as well as numbers and/or symbols.

Step 4: At this step you will set up your payment. If you belong to VIACTIV, hkk Krankenkasse, TUI BKK, BKK Salzgitter, BKK Public, energie BKK or BKK KBA, then myWEIGHTcoach/myHEALTHcoach is free for you. If you belong to an unlisted health insurance provider, you can pay for the course yourself initially and then you can get a grant/subsidy from your provider. Get more information from your provider to know how much they can support you financially for myWEIGHTcoach or myHEALTHcoach.When you press the “Payment” button, a new tab/window with our “PayPal” payment tools will open. Here you will be able to pay for the course with either a PayPal account or a debit or credit card.

Step 5: In order to finalize your registration, you’ll automatically be redirected back to the registration form upon successful payment. If you are not, you will find a link at the bottom of the payment page that will take you back to our site.

Back on the registration page, you will now need to agree to the general terms and conditions, as well as the privacy agreement, after which you click the Register button, and then you are done. Please note that the last step is very important. If you close only the tab/window of the successful payment you are not fully logged in and you will not be able to log in with your data despite having paid.

Which forms of payment exist?

The payment of the participation fee takes place online through a save payment form. After the registration, you will be automatically directed to the payment form and there you can pay via credit card (MasterCard, VisaCard), via debit or via PayPal.

How does the reimbursement work and which health insurance companies support the participation in myWEIGHTcoach and myHEALTHcoach?

Because myWEIGHTcoach and myHEALTHcoach is certified by the central inspecting authority of the GKV-Spitzenverbände according to the guideline of prevention (§20 SGB V), they can basically be subsidized by all public health insurance companies. This means that your health insurance company can take between 75 % and 100 % of the participating fees, depending on the constitution of the health insurance company. The cost takeover will take place reactively after the completion of the course. You will do the advance payment and you will pay the participating fees first. A regular participation of the chosen course is a pre-condition for the reimbursement according to §20 SGB V. After completion of the course, you can request a subsidy with your participation certificate and the bill at your health insurance company. The health insurance company can tell you how high this subsidy will be. Unfortunately, we cannot give information about this.

How do I get my participation certificate?

In order to obtain a participation certificate, you have to participate regularly and successfully in at least six out of eight course units (myHEALTHcoach) or eight out of ten course units (myWEIGHTcoach). A successful participation means that you did the Week-Check at the end of the week. After the completion of the course, you can download the participation certificate in the area of myDownloads and you can submit this together with the bill to the health insurance company.

How much time do I have to budget for the courses?

The advantage of an online course is that you are not bounded to strict times. You also do not have to apply at specific period of time for the course - as it is usually the case for prevention courses, but you can use short waiting periods or breaks to log in and to be engaged with the contents. Additionally, you can access the courses anywhere if you have the internet. How much time you spend in order to study the specific course steps is up to you. This means you can adjust myWEIGHTcoach and myHEALTHcoach individually to your life rhythm.

What happens if I would like to go on holiday or if I am sick during the course?

Theoretically, you can participate in both online courses if you have internet access. In order to have a break from course participation if your are on holiday or if you are sick, you can access both courses for twelve respectively ten weeks. Because myWEIGHTcoach takes place for ten weeks in total and myHEALTHcoach for eight weeks, you have the possibility to have a break from the participation for two weeks. To keep on track, we suggest that you participate in the courses regularly and without longer breaks.

Do I get support if I have questions?

Of course, you can ask us if you have technical or content-related questions. Our expert team is giving you support and answers. Please use the contact form and we will work on your request. For further support or sharing experience with other users, you can use myCommunity. There, you have the opportunity to get in contact with other people and you can share tips and tricks.
