My Health Rewards by Medica®

The City of Minneapolis wellness program – featuring My Health Rewards by Medica – is back. New for 2014, the program offers more ways to improve your health and earn the preferred wellness premium rate on your health insurance coverage in 2015.

Make a Point of Completing the Enhanced Wellness Program

When you earn 300 points for completing any combination of the health actions below by August 31, 2014, you will qualify for the wellness employee contribution rate on your health insurance coverage for the 2015 plan year. Pay attention to the points associated with each health action as they have changed from last year's program.

Get started today by going to mymedica.com and clicking the Health & Wellness tab. The first time you visit, you’ll be asked to complete the Personal Health Profile. After you do so, you’ll have access to your Personal Health Scorecard. The scorecard displays points you have earned and points you are eligible to earn in the future.

To earn points, complete health actions from the list below until you reach at least 300 points. Please start your health actions as soon as possible, as several of the programs can take weeks or months to complete.

Remember, all health actions are voluntary and confidential. You are not required to participate, even if you are invited to do so. Information you share in the course of completing your health actions is not provided to the City of Minneapolis and has no bearing on your Medica health coverage or benefits.
