Well, the appearance of a lack of privacy at least.

Looks like that commercial paint-mixer I picked up at an auction is going to pay for itself at last!

The good thing about putting a pedometer on your wrist is that you can get credit for your pornhub hours each day.

Not sure if it violates my privacy that much when they know how many steps I made in the day.

I found bits and pieces of the info but the program looks very interesting. Seems that it's available to all UHC subscribers in certain states. I shall ping my benefits department tomorrow.

Thanks OP!

  Hmm, I meet this requirement and benefits told me it wasn't available under my plan. Possibly not available for high deductible plans? Should I try again?

I got an update from UHC today. Your entire group must be enrolled and it's done via your HR Department.

So wait, I just strap one of those to my dog and collect $1500? Cool!

thats-pretty-cool

HR told me to call UHC.
Called UHC they said all incentives handled by the local HR.
Just getting run around. employer is in VA

I'm assuming this has to wait until open enrollment? Not sure how they work this into a plan year that is already in progress.

Just emailed my benefits center. This is still in pilot and is not available to employers until Jan 2018.

I wonder how many people are going to find out that they don't have UHC insurance, just UHC claims handling.

The dog strategy made it to the WSJ. Attaching a fitbit to a hamster wheel, power drill, and ceiling fan were up there too.
