UPlan Fit Choices


You are here

NOTICE! Enrollment to, and editing of, the Fit Choices program is not available until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience.

At the end of last year, Vanco, the vendor responsible for processing Fit Choice payments left the business. The U of M has been working to contract a new vendor, but progress has been very slow. Contracts are signed, but the necessary technology has been slow to develop. Currently, there is no way to sign up for Fit Choices, edit information or process reimbursements. We are working toward resolution, but it may be some time until we are up and running. You will receive your reimbursements if you meet the workout threshold, the payment will just be delayed. When we receive word that all systems are go, we will inform members via email, web and signage at the welcome desk. At that time, there will be steps YOU will need to take to activate your membership. You will receive detailed instructions at that time. We appreciate your patience as we work through this process.

UPlan Fit Choices

Recreational Sports Outdoor Program members enrolled in the Fitness Rewards program are eligible to receive a monthly reimbursement for membership fees. The amount of your reimbursement is prorated based on the total cost of your membership.  The new UPlan Fit Choices program, offered through the Office of Human Resources, rewards members for using the University recreational and fitness facilities at least 8 times per month, on 8 separate days. Currently, membership fees (Facility Pass) and Employee Group Strength Express are the only reimbursable costs.

Reimbursement Process

UPlan Fit Choices will be directly deposited (via and electronic funds transfer) into qualifying members’ personal checking or savings accounts.  There will be a two month delay between the month during which a member exercises and the month in which he or she receives the reward.  For example, members completing the required number of visits in February will have their participation validated in March and will have their accounts credited in late March or early April.  If a member fails to visit eight times during a month, they will not qualify for reimbursement for that period, but will remain eligible in following months. For 2016 - 2017, the monthly reimbursement will be $17 which is based on the prorated monthly cost of your annual pass..

Eligibility

To be eligible for the Fit Choices program at Recreational Sports Outdoor Program, you must:

  • Hold a current RSOP employee, spouse/domestic partner or dependent (must be 18 or over) membership AND
  • Be enrolled in a UPlan medical health program
