Participants can earn up to $350 for staying active and completing age/gender specific screenings and care-management programs.

“The My Health Rewards program debuted in 2019 to help employees understand their overall health and encourage healthy behaviors. “Even during the ongoing pandemic we were able to add several enhancements and saw increased engagement in year two of the program, said Mike Boyd, executive director of Benefits and Wellness. This past year, more than 4,000 employees activated their My Health Rewards account, and more than 2,800 logged enough healthy behaviors to receive a payout of $50 or more.

In fall 2020, the new My Health Rewards mobile app was launched, allowing activated members to keep track of their points, key behaviors and physical activity. Users who link their Apple Watch/iPhone, Fitbit, Garmin or Misfit device to their account earn points for steps taken and any exercise completed — with the opportunity to earn up to 100 points per week.

Through the My Health Rewards portal, UAB provides eligible employees with the option to purchase fitness-tracking devices and other health products at discounted prices. Log in to your My Health Rewards account and use access code UABMHR for discounts on smart scales, blood-pressure monitors, Fitbit and Garmin devices and more.

Log in and begin

Eligible employees can login to activate their account for 2021 and start earning points. If you are a benefit-eligible employee, but not on a 2021 medical plan, you can opt in to view the My Health Rewards portal to see a list of upcoming Employee Wellness events, view past Wellscreen results or gain access to discounted healthy products.
