How the Program Works

The Fitness Reimbursement Program is simple. You just pay fitness expenses as you would normally. In most cases you simply file a claim with copies of your receipts, and you’re reimbursed for eligible fitness expenses.

While your employer may not require them for reimbursement, it’s always a good idea to keep receipts for any eligible out-of-pocket expenses you pay.

Your employer determines how you’re reimbursed—through automatic payroll payments or expense checks—and who is eligible to participate in the program.

Enrolling in the Program

You can sign up for the Fitness Reimbursement Program any time—there’s no need to wait for the next Open Enrollment period. Contact the person or organization managing your benefits enrollment to start today.
