HCC participants can earn credits at home, through HealthyBlue

Description

With health clubs now officially closed, members with Health Club Credit are unable to earn credit via the usual means, through visits. Temporarily, HCC users will be invited to participate and earn credit by tracking their physical activity through the Healthy Blue online wellness center.

Original vs. extended offering

Originally HCC rewarded people for working out at participating gyms 12 or more days per month. Under the HealthyBlue program, members have access to the HealthyBlue wellness portal which delivers health information, tools, challenges and more.

Daily physical activity points values have been adjusted, allowing members to earn an amount comparable to the HCC credit (2,700 points equivalent to $27).

Timeframe

The alternative option is available through September 30, 2020.

Access

To log in to HealthyBlue, current HCC participants can:

  1. Log into Online Member Services*
