This program is for YOU and YOUR SPOUSE. Individuals can earn up to a maximum of $250 or $500 with your Spouse (if applicable) between this program and the Health Club Credit.
Benefited Flight Instructors do not have access to HealthyBlue through your insurance plan. You do have the Health Club Credit option. If you use the UND Wellness Center, you have free access, so it will only apply for other participating fitness clubs.

The Health Club Credit and HealthyBlue program have officially connected.
For those using the Health Club Credit, they will see a +2,000 for earning the Health Club Credit, then a -2,000 for the redemption of the $20 (1 point = 1 penny).
This is to make sure the system doesn't go over 25,000 points, capping it to $250 total per person.
If the return is less than $20, such as the $10 cost at Planet Fitness, it will be a 1,000 point addition and subtraction.
