Nationwide My Health

The 2019 Nationwide My Health Program

Ready to get healthy and get rewarded? Here’s how you can earn up to $1,300 in My Health Reward Dollars.

First, get your Know Your Numbers lab values. Next, complete your annual Health Assessment. These two easy steps will help you learn how your health measures up today. That way, you can discover where to focus your efforts for a healthier you, tomorrow.

Miss one or more biometric maximums? Work with an Optum® nurse or coach who can inspire, motivate and help you improve your health through Personal Health Actions. Call the My Health NurseLine at 888-688-4030 to get started. Based on your screening results and personal goals, the nurse may recommend that you continue working one-on-one with a nurse or coach. Your coach will offer you online education in addition to personal coaching over the phone, online chat, or secure email.

Complete 100% of the above between Jan. 1 and Oct. 31, 2019, and you’ll earn:

  • $780 for a single associate
  • $1,300 for associate with a spouse/domestic partner

Take control of your health today — and get rewarded.

Note: To be eligible for the 2019 My Health program, you must be an associate or spouse/domestic partner enrolled in Nationwide medical coverage.

1. Obtain your Know Your Numbers lab values = 25%

Associates have two options for obtaining lab values:

  • Get your annual preventive care physical, which is covered at no cost for those enrolled in Nationwide medical coverage.

    Ask your doctor to complete and submit the Physician Results Form. Instructions for downloading the form are available in myWELLBEING at myPLACE. If you've obtained your lab values since Nov. 1, 2018, ask your physician to complete and submit your results after Jan. 1, 2019.

    NOTE: This is the only option available to spouses and domestic partners.

  • Complete an onsite screening.

    Several larger Nationwide locations offer onsite screening events. Visit myWELLBEING at myPLACE to review event details and register for an onsite screening event. Your lab values will be automatically uploaded to your Health Profile on Rally at nationwidemyhealth.com.

By completing your Know Your Numbers lab values, you'll achieve 25% toward completion of the My Health program.

2. Complete your Annual Health Assessment = 25%

The Health Assessment at nationwidemyhealth.com is a confidential health questionnaire. It takes about 15 minutes and can help you jump-start a personal action plan and learn about possible health risks. Remember that the Health Assessment involves answering a series of health questions, not reporting your Know Your Numbers lab values.

By completing your Health Assessment, you'll achieve 25% toward completion of the My Health program.

3. Evaluate your results = 50%

Your Know Your Numbers lab values offer important information related to five key areas of health that can lead to disease or improve health outcomes. These biometric maximums will determine if you need to complete a Personal Health Action.

The biometric maximums for 2019 are:

Body Mass Index (BMI)

Less than or equal to 29.9

or

New for 2019, at least a 2-point decrease from last year’s BMI as reported by your physician or onsite screening

Blood pressure Less than or equal to 140/90
LDL Cholesterol (Bad) Less than or equal to 160
Blood sugar Less than or equal to 125
Tobacco use No tobacco use is permitted

Did you meet all the biometric maximums?

If you meet all five biometric maximums, you'll achieve 50% toward completion of the My Health program. That means, if you've completed your annual Health Assessment (25%), your Know Your Numbers lab values (25%), and you've met all five biometric maximums (50%), you've achieved 100% completion of the My Health program and earned your My Health Reward Dollars for 2020.

Did you miss any of the biometric maximums?

If you miss one or more of the biometric maximums, or if you anticipate missing one, complete a Personal Health Action. Call the My Health NurseLine at 888-688-4030 to get started. Based on your screening results and personal goals, the nurse may recommend that you continue working 1-on-1 with a nurse or coach. Your coach will offer you online education in addition to personal coaching over the phone, online chat, or secure email. Call 888-688-4030 after Jan. 1 to start your Personal Health Action – even before you receive your screening results.

When you complete your Personal Health Action, you'll achieve your missing percentage for 50% toward completion of the My Health program. That means, if you've completed your annual Health Assessment (25%), your Know Your Numbers lab values (25%), and your Personal Health Action (50%), you've achieved 100% completion of the My Health program and earned your My Health Reward Dollars for 2020.

Rally Profile

  • All information you choose to include in your Public Profile will be visible to all Rally users, not only Nationwide users. This is different from the information in your Health Profile, which is private.

  • Other users can see Profile information, including your Rally username, gender, general location, interests, activities and connections.

  • Yes. Simply follow the on-screen instructions.

Rally Missions

  • Missions are simple activities you can do every day to improve your diet, fitness, and mood. From eating your vegetables to getting more exercise, we’ve got Missions for you! Participation in Missions will enable you to earn Coins that earn Rally rewards (but are not tied to the Nationwide My Health Rewards program).

  • Rally uses your Health Assessment responses to determine which Missions will be most helpful to you. For example, if you indicate that you don't exercise regularly, Rally might recommend easier Missions in the MOVE category that could benefit your health and are within your reach.

  • Yes, you can. If you wish to use a device such as an iPhone, Android, Jawbone® or Fitbit® to track your activity on Rally, you will need to have an active account for that device. If you haven't set up your device yet or don't have an existing account, follow the instructions that came with your device. When you join a Mission that is compatible with wearable fitness devices, you'll be asked whether you want to use a device to check in.

  • Yes, you can track your weekly progress on Missions you have joined. Rally displays your daily check-ins and progress, provided you have reached the goal. You will also be able to see your progress toward the overall goal of completing your Mission in four weeks.

  • Mission requirements vary and may include:

    • Individual Mission expectations. For example, walk three miles every day.
    • Minimum success criteria. Check in a minimum number of times per week to receive credit for that week. Your week starts on the day you join the Mission and runs for six days afterward. For example, you may need to check in a minimum number of times to be given credit for that week.
    • Mission duration. Each Mission lasts four weeks. These weeks don't have to be consecutive, but you must check in a minimum number of times each week for four weeks in order to complete the Mission.

Challenges

  • Challenges consist of walking and running challenges where you compete against others and are awarded Rally Coins as you make your way around the virtual course. Participation in a Challenge requires use of a fitness device, including iPhone, Android, Fitbit®, Jawbone® and many others. As you walk or run in real life using your device, your distance is applied to the virtual course. Participation and completion of a Challenge will earn you Coins but is not tied to the Nationwide My Health program.

  • Select the Challenges tab in Rally and follow the on-screen instructions to participate.

  • No, Challenges are virtual. If you have a fitness tracking device — including iPhone, Android, Fitbit®, Jawbone® and many others — you can walk/run anywhere (even on a treadmill) or sync your distance to the virtual course.

  • No, you can join only one Challenge at a time.

  • 10 users are visible on the course. The course displays the top 9 positions along with your user PIN (no matter what position you are in).

  • The Leaderboard displays all users within the Challenge. It is sorted by the users with the most miles at the top of the list and the users with the least miles at the bottom of the list.

Rally Coins and Prizes

  • Rally rewards you with Coins when you complete a task. You can then redeem your Coins for discounted items in the Rally Marketplace or take part in sweepstakes for chances to win health- and technology-related prizes such as fitness trackers, gift cards and more. Rally Coins are not affiliated with the Nationwide My Health Rewards program.

  • You'll earn Rally Coins when you complete tasks, such as finishing your Health Assessment, logging in daily, joining communities or participating in Missions. For more details, select the REWARDS tab on any Rally page at nationwidemyhealth.com or on the Rally Health app.

  • View your coin balance below your username on all Rally pages at nationwidemyhealth.com or on the Rally Health app.

Your mailing address will not be required if you receive gift cards or other items that can be emailed to you. Please allow 8–12 weeks from the time you claim your reward until delivery. If you have not won, you will not be notified. Don't give up, though. There is a new sweepstakes every two weeks. Keep trying!
