FitWorks Medicare: A program designed specifically for our Medicare members to keep you motivated and on track with your health by offering an annual reward. All you have to do is complete different challenges to earn 100 points and you’ll receive a $50 gift card to TOPS Friendly Markets – it’s that easy!
How it Works
If you’re a Medicare Advantage plan member with Independent Health, you will be eligible to earn the annual reward by completing challenges and earning at least 100 points between January 1 and December 31.
There are several challenges to choose from and each one is worth points that you’ll automatically earn for completing:
- Enhanced Annual Wellness Visit*
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.
Benefits vary by plan and some plans may not include coverage for this benefit.
