Being healthy in my daily life will help me stay away from health risks in the future, so I’m always looking for new ways to be healthy and to live a more balanced life. Recently, I discovered the Well onTarget Fitness Program available through my Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois health insurance. The Fitness Program is offered as a part of the Blue Care Connection, and gives me an affordable gym membership as well as access to more than 9,000 fitness clubs across the country. When I decided to enroll, I did some exploration and learned that while not all members who are covered by an employer can use the program, all members who bought a health insurance plan on the Health Insurance Marketplace can join the Fitness Program.
It’s Inexpensive. I can go to any network gyms for a one-time $25 joining fee and $25 a month, plus any taxes. When I compared gym prices, I found the Well onTarget Fitness Program is one of the best gym membership deals.
It’s Flexible. I’m so relieved that the Fitness Program is a month to month gym membership that I can cancel at any time, so there’s no hassle of a yearly commitment.
It’s Convenient. The network of locations has some of the nation’s leading fitness clubs, regional chains, and even local facilities. I can fit a quick workout into my day whenever and wherever I want, because there’s always a network gym near my home and my office. I can even use my workout time to avoid rush hour traffic.
On top of that, I automatically get discounts to over 40,000 possible health and well-being specialists for over 39 different specialties like acupuncture, holistic practitioners, mind-body relaxation and more. These complementary and alternative medicine benefits have really helped me to lower my daily stress.
To join in the Well onTarget program, the steps are simple:1) Log into your BCBSIL account. 2) Click on Fitness Program link in the Quick Links section of the right side bar3) Follow the steps. It’ll guide you all the way through the registration process.
I knew if I wasn’t up for the online enrollment, I could always call (888) 762-BLUE (2583), Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 9 p.m., in any U.S. time zone.
I’m grateful to have so many tools and resources available to me to help me be healthy in Well onTarget. It was a relief to find an affordable gym membership with so many options available to me. I hope to see you at the gym soon!*Well onTarget is a registered mark of HCSC.
