Reimbursement

Employees and spouses who are UPlan policy holders are eligible for a reimbursement of 50% (up to $100) of the $199 registration fee  (NEW: Lifetime reimbursements have gone away, which means that a UPlan employee is eligible to receive this reimbursement for one fitness class each new program year). Participants must complete both pre-and post-program assessments, attend at least 13 of the 16 classes, and create an account (see below). When requirements are met, 150 Wellbeing points will be awarded and $100 will be reimbursed in the form of an electronic deposit into the participant’s checking or savings account within 6-8 weeks of course completion**.
