Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota


Starting in 2019, BCBSND will be partnering with WebMD Health Services to offer a new and improved online wellness portal experience as the platform for the HealthyBlue program. As a result of this new partnership, the administration of the Health Club Credit program will also see some new changes:


1. BCBSND will no longer be offering a $20 reimbursement program each month – instead, eligible BCBSND members will receive points (not reimbursements) for working out 12 times a month at your facility.  However, member’s still need to workout at your club, in order to get their points.


2.  Starting January 1st, 2019, BCBSND Health Club Credit program will be a 9-month program only, going forward. January-September workouts will be rewarded as points only, not reimbursements. October, November and December workouts will no longer need to be submitted, however Jan – September workouts will need to submitted as usual through NIHCArewards.

3.  Processing fees will only be $.20 per qualifying BCBSND member, not $.25. Now that there is no ACH that needs to be processed for your BCBSND members, your monthly processing fees will be decreased to $.20 per qualifying member vs $.25 cents.
4. Yes, BCBSND will require each eligible member to complete a 2019 Authorization online.
Lastly, if you have any BCBSND members that didn’t get submitted or reimbursed for any January-October 2018 workouts, the deadline has expired to do any resubmitting for these folks. October 2018 was the last and final month to capture any past workout months for your BCBSND members. 

Who is eligible?

  • Active members of fully insured group plans and most individual purchasers of BCBSND plans are eligible to participate. Members of a self-insured group plan that’s administered by BCBSND may also be eligible if their employer offers the program.
  • A maximum of two qualifying adult BCBSND members (Subscriber and Spouse) may participate and will receive points towards their gym workouts.
