CU Health Plan membership has its rewards


If you’re still thinking about whether to enroll or re-enroll in a CU Health Plan, here’s something that may sway you: CU Health Plan members receive discounts and rewards through six wellness programs.

The programs — including a new initiative aimed at engaging children — are part of the health and wellness package you’ll receive by enrolling in CU Health Plan Exclusive, High Deductible or Kaiser by Friday, May 16. Existing members of CU Health Plan Access Network who re-enroll also are eligible. Most of the programs are sponsored by Be Colorado, the wellness component of the CU Health Plan.

CU Health Plan wellness programs emphasize healthy activity, preventive care methods and the notion that learning about and understanding your health is an important step in achieving wellness. To that end, the CU Health Plan offers:

  • two programs that measure your health status.
  • opportunities to earn rewards by tracking movement and nutritional intake, and achieving goals.
  • a forum to lead your co-workers in wellness events and activities.
  • help to quit smoking.
