Getting started is easy
Is there really no cost to use Hinge Health? How?
Yes! Hinge Health 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.
Who is eligible to join? What do I have to do to join?
Employees and 18+ dependents on a Northwestern University PPO medical plan are eligible. If you need help with pain or an injury, then you will go through a clinical questionnaire to make sure our program is the right fit. Our program to stay healthy and pain free has no clinical requirement, and is open to all 18+ members on the medical plan.”
Second, we’ll ask you to fill out a questionnaire (it takes about 10 minutes). We use your information to create your account and make sure the Hinge Health program is a good fit for you. We may determine you’re not able to join if your questionnaire or insurance information is incomplete, or if you are restricted from or need physical support to exercise.
What’s expected of me if I join?
We ask you to commit 15 minutes at least 3 times a week to reduce your pain. You can always do your exercises every day if you like; in fact, many members do because they find it controls their pain better. No matter what, we’ll do everything we can to help you stick to your program.
What do I need for my exercise sessions?
You’ll need the Hinge Health app and a comfortable place to exercise (don’t worry if it’s not the ideal space. It only needs to be practical). For some exercises you may need a chair or table for support, in which case the app will let you know.
If you are receiving care for chronic pain (pain that lasts for 3+ months), you may be eligible for a Hinge Health exercise kit at no cost to you. To receive this kit, complete your first exercise therapy session so we can assess your pain, strength, and mobility. Then you can request your kit in the app.
Who is my care team?
Your care team includes a dedicated physical therapist who will help fine tune your care plan and conduct virtual physical therapy sessions if needed. Members who are treated for chronic pain (pain that lasts or recurs for 3+ months) get 1-on-1 coaching and support from a certified health coach.
