Begin Earning Wellness Dollars! 2019 Well-being Program Has Started

The 2019 wellness program has launched! You have the opportunity to earn $450 through a variety of programs. In 2019, all benefits-eligible employees as well as medical–plan enrolled spouses may participate in the Wellness Program.

This year we’ve made it easier to earn Wellness Dollars. We’ve added many new opportunities for coworkers to earn and participate. Now, connecting your Fitbit (visit the preventure store for discounts on Fitbit items!) or Apple Watch earns you $10 Wellness Dollars. You can earn another $10 by just logging into the mobile app for the first time. Tracking your calories through an app like MyFitnessPal for 20 days will earn you $30.

Similar to 2018, you can earn wellness dollars from January 14 to  September 30, 2019. Redeem earned wellness dollars from January 14 to October 31, 2019. You choose how you want to receive your wellness dollars. Either choose a health account contributions (for participants that are enrolled in a CHI Medical Plan) or Gift Cards (*Gift cards are considered taxable income)
