How To Get A Fee Reimbursement

When you successfully complete a wellness program that has fees, you can get at least some of those fees paid back to you. Each program has its own rules for who can get a fee reimbursement, and how much you can get back. Please refer to the specific program pages for more information.

A fee reimbursement is not automatic. You must create an account to receive your reimbursement. You will need your:

    • seven-digit U of M employee ID number
    • bank account's routing and account number

    Get Reimbursed

    1. Register for the wellness program you're interested in and pay the course fee upfront
    2. Complete the requirements for the course
    3. Register an account with 121 Benefits (instructions below) and make sure your bank account's routing and account number are on file
    4. Your course manager will tell the Wellness Program that you completed a program and will start the reimbursement process. Please allow 6-8 weeks for your reimbursement to process and be deposited into your account

    Register with 121 Benefits

    1. Go to
    2. Hover your cursor over the “Participants” tab at the top and click on "FSA-HRA-HSA Login"
    3. On the left side of the screen, enter your seven-digit U of M employee ID number as both your username and password under "Existing User?" If you are a spouse eligible for reimbursement, add "01" to the end of the U of M employee ID number
    4. You will be asked to change your password at this time

    Register Your Bank Information
