2019 FitWorks® Medicare program

Sometimes we all need a little help staying on the right path. When it comes to your health, Independent Health’s FitWorks Medicare program is designed to keep you motivated and on track to wellness with the help of an annual reward. By engaging in your health, you could earn 100 points and you’ll automatically receive a $50 gift card to TOPS Friendly Markets! It’s that easy!

There are several services to choose from and each is worth points that you’ll automatically earn for completing between January 1 and December 31. Independent Health will track your activity, so there’s no paperwork for you to fill out. It’s all part of your Medicare Advantage plan.

Maintain your good health with an Enhanced Annual Wellness Visit – a $0 preventive service that encourages you to create a personalized health plan with your doctor. The visit includes a detailed exam and can help you identify any health risks before they become a problem. View the list of participating providers here.
