Earn $100 Credit for a Healthy Lifestyle

Better health is rewarding — in more ways than one. In addition to helping you develop healthy habits, employees and spouses on a USG healthcare plan can earn up to a $100 well-being credit for participating in USG Well-being.

All eligible activities are listed on the well-being website. While you can participate in activities year-round, you have until Sept. 30, 2019, to earn the $100 credit.

The credit is a monetary reward for completing any of the listed healthy activities. Employees and spouses on a USG healthcare plan can earn up to a $100 well-being credit by completing these activities by Sept. 30. It is taxable income and will apply to your last paycheck in November. Questions or concerns about your credit? You are welcome to email USG Well-being at usgwellbeing@usg.edu or call our USG Well-being vendor (RedBrick Health) customer service team at 1-833-724-4874.
