Healthy Blue updates from August

Activity History:
The activity history section is changing. It will be in sorted categories rather than a running list.

It can take up to 48 hours to see updated points. You will see the points that you earned from July 1, 2011-June 30, 2012 from participating in Work Well activities deposited in your account by Nov. 1.

Health Club Credit Integration:
The Health Club Credit and HealthyBlue program have officially connected. For those using the Health Club Credit, they will see a +2,000 for earning the Health Club Credit, then a -2,000 for the redemption of the $20. This is to make sure the system doesn’t go over 25,000 points, capping it to $250 total per person. If the return is less than $20, such as the $10 cost at Planet Fitness, it will be a 1,000 point addition and subtraction.

Spouses using HealthyBlue:
The HealthyBlue program was recently opened up to others in the state beyond the NDPERS members. If a UND spouse has another primary health care coverage, they will need to re-log into the HealthyBlue portal and it will auto-transfer their points. Postcards will be sent by BCBS shortly.

If you have questions about any of the above, please contact: Tara Roberts, NDPERS/BCBS liaison at: 701-277-2852 or All updates are also on the Work Well web site at
