UnitedHealthcare, an insurance provider, has introduced UnitedHealthcare Rewards, a new rewards program in which eligible members, including spouses, can use wearable devices to earn up to US$1,000 each per year by completing various daily health goals and one-time activities.

One of the ways eligible members can earn rewards is by using a compatible activity tracker, smartwatch or smartphone — such as an Apple Watch — to meet daily activity goals, and track sleep and other health-related activities. The financial rewards people earn can either be added to a prepaid debit card or deposited into a health savings account for members who want help covering out-of-pockets medical costs.  

Once enrolled, UnitedHealthcare Rewards members can earn incentives totaling up to $1,000 per year for completing the following ongoing and one-time activities:

  • Achieve 5,000 steps or more each day.
  • Complete 15 minutes or more of activity per day.
  • Track sleep for 14 nights.
  • Get a biometric screening.
  • Complete a health survey. 
  • Select paperless billing.
  • Additional qualifying activities will be added throughout the year.
