Fitness reimbursement to be offered to Aetna members

Aetna members will be reimbursed for numerous healthy activities through the Aetna Fitness Reimbursement Program, which will be launched on Jan. 1, 2013.

Gym membership fees and group exercise classes, personal training, fitness equipment purchases and weight management and nutrition counseling services are among the programs that could benefit Aetna members, physically and financially.

It will be offered to National Accounts, Middle Markets and Public & Labor. An Aetna member will be able to take advantage of the program only if their employer offers the Reimbursement Program.

The program will also allow employers the ability to customize parts of the program to fit their overall wellness strategy.
