Independent Health's Nutrition Benefit

We understand achieving good health and well-being takes some effort. From finding the time to exercise to incorporating healthy food choices, leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t always easy. That’s why we’ve designed a variety of Pathways SM that help make it easier to take charge of your health.

Your Pathway to Better Nutrition

Exclusively from Independent Health, our nutrition benefit offers the opportunity to earn money-back rewards on fresh fruits and vegetables* – up to $500 as an individual or $1,000 as a family each year! This unique benefit makes it easy for you to incorporate healthy food choices into your life, and save money while doing so. The best part? It’s included as a wellness benefit option within many of our individual and small group market products, and is often available on large group health plans.

How It Works

For every $2 you spend on fresh produce with each transaction, you’ll receive $1 credit toward a quarterly rewards card*, which you can use on future in-store grocery purchases at TOPS Friendly Markets (excluding tobacco products). Be sure to use your TOPS BonusPlus® or BonusCard every time you check out to earn credit. Your Nutrition Rewards will be printed at the bottom of every receipt, and there is no minimum requirement to earn a quarterly rewards card.

How To Register

New for 2017, the Well-Being Assessment is no longer a requirement, making enrollment even easier with one less step. On or after your plan effective date, you (or the plan subscriber) will need to:

  1. Register or log in as an Independent Health member.

  2. Enter your Tops BonusPlus® or BonusCard number when prompted. It’s that easy!

Members are still encouraged to complete the Well-Being Assessment, which is available through FitWorks®. This valuable tool can help you gauge your overall health while helping you to identify your strengths and any opportunities for improvement.

What's Next?

We’ll contact you within 10 business days to confirm if your enrollment was successful or if we need more information. If the information provided to TOPS doesn’t match the BonusPlus® information on file, we’ll email you with instructions on what to do to make sure you’re eligible to earn rewards.

You’ll know you’re registered when you see “INDEPENDENT HEALTH NUTRITION REWARDS” on the bottom of your TOPS receipt.
