Gym Reimbursement - Fit Choices
75 or 125 wellness points
When you enroll in the Fit Choices program and exercise at least eight times per month, up to $20 of your monthly membership dues will be reimbursed to you plus you can earn up to 125 wellness points.
How it Works
When you exercise at least eight times a month for six months between October 1, 2016, and July 31, 2017, you can earn 75 wellness points. When you exercise at least 12 times a month during the same time period, you can earn 125 wellness points. You will earn the wellness points after you have been reimbursed over six consecutive months.
Reimbursements through Fit Choices come in the form of reduced membership fees at your gym or fitness center. Please talk to your fitness center for more information on how they will reimburse your fees.
If your spouse is covered by the UPlan, he or she is also eligible to receive up to $20 monthly reimbursement for visiting a participating fitness center at least eight times per month. They can also earn wellness points using the same rules stated above.
How to Sign Up
For most gyms (except the University Recreation and Wellness Center), you can sign up for Fit Choices right at your gym or fitness center. You can go to Medica’s website to see a list of the fitness centers that participate in Fit Choices.
If you join the University Recreation & Wellness Center on the Twin Cities campus, you can sign up directly on their website. Select "Medica" from the pull-down menu and follow the instructions.
When you visit a participating fitness center eight times a month, the fitness center tracks your visits and sends a verification to Medica, the provider of Fit Choices. Your reimbursement shows up as a credit of up to $20 for your monthly dues, or it is deposited directly into your checking or savings account (depending on your fitness center).
A maximum of two UPlan members per household can be reimbursed through Fit Choices. Your reimbursement will generally take around 60 days to process.
