Reminders and New Information for HealthyRewards


As year-end approaches, please keep in mind these important points for members renewing their HealthyRewards plan:

  • HealthyRewards credits/dollars DO NOT rollover from plan year to plan year.
  • Members should redeem their HealthyRewards credits/dollars online before the end of their plan year. If your plan year ends on December 31, you should do this by December 30, 2017.
    December 31, 2017 is a blackout date and members will not be able to access the program on this date.
  • If members do not redeem their credits on or before the end of their plan date, they will have 90 days to sign in and redeem their credits online. At this time, a countdown clock will appear within their account.
    • For example, when a member logs into their account on January 1, 2018, a countdown clock will indicate they now have 90 days from that day to redeem their credits online.
  • After 90 days, they will have 30 additional days to redeem them through our customer service department by calling the phone number on the back of their member card.
