Track your healthy behaviors to earn up to 200 points

You deserve credit for healthy behavior, and you’ll get that credit when you log your activities using the Track tool at Use Track to record what you do each day to exercise, eat healthy and find balance in your life, and you’ll earn up to 200 points in the 2015 employee health and wellness program.

It’s a good idea to begin self-reporting your healthy behaviors today, because you can only self-report activities from the previous 30 days. If you start tracking now, you can still earn more than 100 points by Aug. 31 and up to 200 points by Dec. 31.

When you earn 300 points by Aug. 31, 2015, in the employee wellness program through My Health Rewards by Medica, you’ll qualify for the discounted wellness rate on your 2016 health insurance premiums. (In 2015, savings on the insurance premiums are about $400 a year for a single person and $1,200 a year for a family.) You will also receive a $20 gift card for every 100 points you earn in the program up to a maximum of $100 for 600 points. (Note: There is no gift card at the 300-point level because that is the level for a discounted rate on your health insurance premiums in 2016.) You have until Dec. 31, 2015, to earn 600 points.

How to self-report with Track

You can also automatically upload physical activities from a variety of mobile apps and personal devices such as Fitbit, Fitbug, Jawbone, Garmin, MapMyFitness, Runkeeper, Moves or Withings.
