Your 2021 Wellness Benefit

Members get to choose how they want to earn their wellness benefit. Get up to $250 in rewards by engaging in your health and wellness this year.

Get started by taking your health risk assessment

To be eligible for the benefit and fitness center reimbursements, you must first complete a Health Risk Assessment (HRA) on the online wellness portal. After completion you will have earned 2,500 points ($25).

Follow these easy steps:

  1. Log in to your secure Sanford Health Plan member account at
  2. Under the Insurance tab, select Portals and Links, then Wellness Portal
  3. If it is your first time in the portal, you will be asked to set up an account
  4. After an account is established, you will be taken directly to your HRA questionnaire

Choose how you want to earn wellness benefit

Earn your benefit throughout the year by logging points in the online wellness portal, fitness center reimbursements or participating in workplace wellness activities (employees only). You can earn through one of these options or a combination of all three. The points received from all of these activities go towards your $250 benefit. You can view your earned and received points in the Redemption Center in your secure Sanford Health Plan member account.
