As of July 1, Vitality members can earn wellness rebates or subsidies on gym memberships, as well as weight loss and smoking cessation programs after completing the Vitality Health Review. Enrolled spouses are also eligible for rebates and subsidies, although the subsidy amounts are different. Refer to the Partner Gym Subsidy link for specific dollar amounts.
Partner Gym Subsidies
Monthly subsidies are available at Vitality partner gyms to help cover the cost of membership. The higher your Vitality status, the greater your subsidy payment – up to $35/month! ($15/month for Bronze, $20, for Silver, $25 for Gold, and $35 for platinum). In order to receive the subsidy, you will need to work out at the partner facility four times per month; the subsidy will be deposited into your bank account on a monthly basis. You can identify partner gyms now from the Vitality homepage, by clicking “manage your links/gyms” then “partner health clubs.” Subsidies are available going forward from July 1.
If you have a qualifying gym membership at a non-partner gym, you can receive a rebate of up to $200 toward your annual membership fees. (Members are eligible for the subsidy OR rebate, but not both.) In order to earn a gym rebate you must be both a member of Vitality and your gym for at least four months and submit a rebate request form along with an invoice or proof of payment. You can only request one rebate per program year, so you’ll want to wait until you reach $200 or as close as you will get by the end of the year.
Weight Loss Rebate
Vitality members with a BMI over 30 can earn up to a $200 rebate for participating in a weight loss program.
Smoking cessation rebate
Vitality members can earn up to a $200 rebate for participating in a smoking cessation program.
