FAQs from Sanford
- The wellness activity point Redemption Center is available for use. To access the Redemption Center:
- Log into your account at www.sanfordhealthplan.com
- Go to the NDPERS-Dakota Wellness tab
- Select Redemption Center in the dropdown menu
- Redemption Center information can be accessed by navigating the site.
- View available items and gift cards in the Rewards tab
- View account details in the My Account tab
- Account details are located in the My Account tab. Information regarding Earned Points that can be accessed includes:
- Awarded: The total number of points accumulated through on line wellness activities, on site wellness program activities and fitness center reimbursements. Please note that members can accrue points in excess of the 25,000 that can be redeemed. The Awarded points will continue to accrue for the duration of the program year.
- Redeemed: The total number of points that are pending redemption. These are orders that have been placed and are pending processing. Once the order has been processed, the Redeemed points will cancel out and be included in the Adjustments.
- Adjustments: The total number of points that have been redeemed through Dakota Wellness Program activities, fitness center reimbursements and Blue Cross Blue Shield activities (January 1-April 15).
- Total: The total number of points available after deducting the redeemed points and adjustments from the awarded points. Please note that this total accumulates for the duration of the program year and may exceed the maximum of 25,000 points that can be redeemed.
- Eligible members can redeem a maximum of 25,000 points for the program year ($250.00). If an order is placed that would exceed the maximum, a message will appear indicating that the order was declined. A new order for items staying within the 25,000 point maximum can be placed. To determine the number of points available for redemption, add the Redeemed points and Adjustments and subtract from 25,000.
- There were some members that ordered gift cards through the Redemption Center that were assessed fees. The inclusion of these fees was erroneous and has been corrected. Members that were assessed fees have had the fee-equivalent of points credited back to their Awarded points. We apologize for the inconvenience.

bWell and Fitness Center Reimbursement Integration
The bWell system and Fitness Center Reimbursement are connected. The below is not clear yet and will be updated when it is finalized.
For those using the bWell, they will see +2,000 for earning the Fitness Center Reimbursement, 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.
