2020 Reminders
  • The BCBSMN Fitness Discount program discontinued 12/31/19, however you will submit your December usage now on the Jan file.  For the next several months, please take the time to look at your Reimbursement History Report and resubmit for any BCBSMN member that got missed the last 6 months in 2019. BCBSMN is allowing you to do any resubmits you need to for the next few months - until June 2020.
  • The Bind and Regency Reimbursement programs have also discontinued as of 12/31/19.
  • NO, the HealthPartners Frequent Fitness program is NOT discontinuing!  However some of the HP small groups and individual plans will no longer be eligible starting 1/1/2020. However, this affects less than 4% of the entire HP population.  So again, the HP Frequent Fitness program is alive and well.
  • Our 3 new Exclusive groups that rolled out 1/1/2020 are:  Portico, Midco and PrimeWest.  Portico is all the ELCA churches, staff and clergy across the nation; 12 workouts = up to $20.  Midco is a nationwide TV/Cable company; 12 workouts = up to $20p/mo.  PrimeWest is a MN-based Medicaid provider; 12 workouts = up to $20 reimbursement p/mo for any senior that is 65 and older.

 Chapter Four:  "We Heart Our Members"
The very first week we opened our doors, a member had a heart attack on the walking track.  As luck would have it, another member (who is a surgeon) was upstairs working out that day. The surgeon brought the member back to life with an AED and chest compressions, while awaiting the ambulance. Thank goodness for amazing members who happen to be just where we need them at the right time.
