UnitedHealthcare to offer members year-long access to Apple Fitness+ at no extra cost

UnitedHealthcare, a UnitedHealth Group company, has expanded its work with Apple to provide millions of members with access to Apple Fitness+, the first fitness service built entirely around Apple Watch. 

Starting Nov. 1, as part of their plan benefits, approximately three million fully insured UnitedHealthcare members in most states who own an Apple Watch can enroll with Apple Fitness+ and receive a year-long subscription at no additional cost. Employers with self-funded health plans will, starting next year, be able to purchase an “Apple Fitness Bundle,” which provides a 12-month subscription to Apple Fitness+ as well as a US$25 Apple digital gift card.

In addition to the 12-month subscription at no additional charge, UnitedHealthcare Motion enrollees can now use program incentives earned to cover an ongoing Apple Fitness+ monthly subscription ($9.99). UnitedHealthcare Motion, a wearable device well-being program available for purchase to employers with self-funded or fully insured plans, enables members to earn more than $1,000 per year in financial incentives for completing certain daily activities goals, such as walking, running, cycling, swimming or strength training (among others). More information about the Apple Fitness+ offer is available at uhc.com/apple-fitness-plus.
