My Health Rewards by Medica®

Encouraging and motivating your employees to reach their wellness goals

My Health Rewards by Medica® is now powered by Virgin Pulse, a pioneer in digital health and wellness solutions that help members build healthy habits and live their best life. In 2020, members have more ways to engage daily, including a new mobile app, new activities and opportunities to earn rewards.

Members have many different ways to earn rewards based on what is important to their well-being, including tracking physical activity, learning about healthy living and much more. They can engage on the go with a My Health Rewards mobile app powered by Virgin Pulse, free in the App Store and on Google Play.

The program encourages daily engagement (online or through the mobile app) through tracking daily steps, sleep, activity and completing Healthy Habits activities and Daily Learning Cards personalized to the members’ interests.

Three program options

  1. My Health Rewards – included with fully insured plans and a standard offering for self-funded employers. This program helps members build daily healthy habits and get rewarded for doing so.
  2. My Health Rewards Results – a buy-up option for employers with 51+ employees (fully and self-insured). This program also provides the opportunity to offer biometric screenings and rewards for members that achieve healthy outcomes.
  3. My Health Rewards Invest* – a buy-up option for employers with 51+ employees (fully and self-insured). This is a new program for members enrolled in a health savings account (HSA) to track activity, sleep and nutrition and earn financial incentives when they reach monthly wellness targets.
