I’m always looking for new ways to be healthy and have a more balanced life because I know being healthy in my daily life will help me avoid health risks in the future. In my search, I discovered the Well onTarget Fitness Program available to me through my Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois health insurance. The program gives me an affordable gym membership and discounted access to more than 9,500 fitness clubs across the country. Before I decided to enroll, I did some research. All members who bought a health insurance plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace can join the Fitness Program. If you purchase coverage through your employer, contact your benefits administrator or visit Blue Access for Members℠ to inquire about your benefits. If you need more reasons to join the program, here are a few.
It’s Inexpensive. I can go to any network gyms for a one-time $25 enrollment fee and $25 a month, plus any taxes.
