Reminders and New Information for HealthyRewards

For groups with HealthyRewards, please remember that rewards do not roll over to the new benefit year. Please review and share these details with your employees. There are also new missions available for 2019.

For members renewing their HealthyRewards plan (subscriber ID not changing):

  • If credits were not redeemed before December 30, 2018, members will have 90 days, beginning on January 1, 2019, to login to their account and redeem their credits online. At this time, a countdown clock will appear within their account indicating the 90-day countdown has begun. After 90 days, members will have 30 additional days to redeem their credits through our customer service department by calling the phone number on the back of their member card.
  • Any credits/dollars not redeemed 90 days after January 1, 2019, will be forfeited.

For members that are terming their medical plan:

Members who are not renewing with Rally are highly encouraged to cash out their rewards prior to termination or they will require manual cash out. Manual cash out requires the member to call the customer service number on the back of their Member ID card and provide the following information:

  • Email address
  • Contact Number
  • Mailing Address
  • Dollar Amount

This information will be sent to Rally who will then send a Visa gift card to the member within 30 days. Members will not have the option of selecting another retail gift card.
