Fitness Center Membership Reimbursement

The health questionnaire will be available starting January 9, 2019.

MHealthy is excited to offer the fitness center membership reimbursement again in 2019!  Complete the 2019 StayWell health questionnaire by April 26, 2019, to qualify for the fitness center membership reimbursement.

The University of Michigan has partnered with IncentFit to administer this reimbursement program.

Watch this short video for a quick overview.

Here’s How It Works:

  • Approximately two weeks after you complete your 2019 StayWell health questionnaire you will receive a welcome email from IncentFit. 
  • Once you have logged into the IncentFit site, you will be able to upload documents to IncentFit verifying payment for your fitness center membership. IncentFit will review documentation and notify you if your document was approved or rejected.
  • If your document is rejected, please work directly with IncentFit by emailing support@incentfit.com or calling IncentFit at 844-246-2368.
  • If you have not received your IncentFit email after two weeks, you can still log into the IncentFit site at umich.incentfit.com. To ensure you receive future emails, please add support@incentfit.com to your contacts and/or safe list.

Payments:

  • For every month, January – October 2019, that you verify payment, you will earn a $12/credit.  Verify up to 10 months to earn up to $120.
  • Payouts will occur twice in 2019: once in July and again in December in your U-M paycheck. To ensure a July payment, please upload documentation to IncentFit by June 17, 2019.
