By staying physically active, completing age/gender specific screenings, and participating in care management programs, participants have the potential to earn up to $350.

This past year, more than 5,200 employees activated their My Health Rewards account, and more than 3,900 logged enough healthy behaviors to receive a payout of $50 or more.

The 2024 program will launch Feb. 13, at which time eligible employees can activate their accounts by visiting Any screenings or point-earning activities completed between Jan. 1 and the program start date will still count towards the 2024 program and be processed as usual. Participants will also be able to retroactively log physical activity occurring before Feb. 13.

Due to device connectivity challenges, step tracking will no longer be available in 2024, however, the program has added new point-earning opportunities for participants. Starting Feb. 13, the “Get Active” section of the My Health Rewards portal will allow participants to earn up to 100 points per week for logging exercise and other physical activity ­— this was previously limited to 50 points per week.

“Participants will have the opportunity to earn double the points for physical activity,” said Employee Wellness Manager Emily Davidson. “This will ensure they can continue to reap rewards for their dedication and efforts.”

Prioritize balance and wellbeing

Employees will continue earn points for participating in eligible programs and events offered by the UAB Employee Assistance and Counseling Center, including Mental Health First Aid, bi-monthly seminars and more. Explore the “Balance and Resiliency” section of the My Health Rewards portal for additional ways to earn points, like downloading the UABwell app or the myStrength app on your device.
