Incentives

Lifestyle changes take work, and we know that. Do what you can, when you can - and know every step you make is a step toward a healthier, happier life! The Be Well UC incentive plan is designed so you can choose your own path toward wellness. We hope you'll seek out information and resources new to you and work on all aspects of wellness throughout the year.

Be Well UC is a free, voluntary, incentive based wellness program with programming open to all and incentives available to all active employees who are enrolled in a UC Anthem medical plan.
