$200 Wellness Benefit
Any covered employee, covered family member (age 18+), or covered retiree on a Dartmouth-sponsored Cigna health plan, is eligible to receive a reimbursement of up to $200 per calendar year (combined family maximum) as part of the Wellness Benefit. The Wellness Benefit replaced the previously known $200 Fitness Reimbursement Benefit in 2014, allowing for more flexibility. You can use the Wellness Benefit on qualified health promoting activities and devices that help support you in areas such as physical activity, weight management, stress management and tobacco cessation.
New for 2015!
Beginning January 1, 2015, the Wellness Benefit reimbursement process will be simplified. The 2015 Wellness Benefit Reimbursement Forms and more details can be found here.
What Can I Get Reimbursed For?
To receive this benefit, you must have met the minimum requirement for participation/attendance for each activity/receipt you are submitting for. Click on the links below for more details and to access the benefit forms for 2014 or 2015. Please note, all forms can be completed online, then just print, sign and mail with the applicable attachments.
Although a log card is not needed in 2015, you still need to have met the participation/attendance criteria prior to submitting for your reimbursement. If you still wish to log your activities, click here for the Activity Tracking Sheet. This log is for your own tracking purposes and does not need to be submitted to Cigna.
The Wellness Benefit is a taxable benefit beginning in 2015. To minimize the impact, Dartmouth College will contribute a set percentage to offset your required tax withholding. For reimbursements processed by October 31st, taxes will be processed before the end of the calendar year. For any reimbursements processed after Oct 31st, taxes will be processed in the following calendar year. This benefit, plus applicable taxes, will be reported on your W2. For questions about this benefit, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wellness Benefit terms and conditions are subject to change at the discretion of Dartmouth College.
