Didn’t meet the numbers?

Even if you don’t meet the numbers, you can still earn the full $520 by participating in a reasonable alternative. You have two options to do a reasonable alternative after you get your Wellness Credit Screening:

  1. Virgin Pulse Journeys: Go to your Virgin Pulse account and complete the Journey for each of the numbers that you missed. Plan ahead, though! Journeys could take a few weeks to complete. We recommend that you get screened early so you have plenty of time to complete your Journeys, if needed. Journeys must be completed before Sept. 30, 2020.
  2. Physician Recommendation: if your physician wants you to participate in an alternative activity different from the Journeys, a Reasonable Alternative Action Form must be signed by the physician and submitted with your agreement to complete the alternative activity. Ask your physician to fax the completed form to the number provided on the form. The form must be completed by your physician and submitted before Sept. 30, 2020.
