UPlan Fit Choices

UPlan Medical Program members who enroll in the UPlan Fit Choices program get paid to exercise. What's more, in 2012 belonging to the Fit Choices program can also qualify participants to earn wellness points.

How Fit Choices Works

The UPlan Medical Program will pay participants up to a $20 per month reimbursement or credit toward their membership dues for attending a fitness center at least eight times each month. The monthly $20 credit is available for a family membership and up to two individual fitness center memberships.

Visits to the health club or fitness center are recorded by the participating facilities. Once your regular workouts are underway, you can expect to receive your reimbursement within about 60 days. Depending on your fitness center's policy, your reward will be reflected as a reduction in monthly dues or will be directly deposited into your checking or savings account.

To be eligible to participate in Fit Choices, you must:

  • be enrolled in a Medica medical plan
  • be age 18 years or older
