For USNH Cigna medical benefit subscribers:
Effective January 1, 2019, there is a change to the reimbursement process for fitness facility memberships. This update has added flexibility to USNH's Cigna fitness facility reimbursement benefit, with these highlights:
- Employees can participate in multiple facility locations and submit for reimbursement - up to $500 per calendar year.
- This benefit can now be shared among all covered family members.
- Elimination of required visits per month.
Requests for reimbursement by the employee are submitted once a year through Cigna, using the claim form and including a paid receipt. A single reimbursement is processed through UNH Payroll as a taxable benefit. Reimbursement requests can be submitted at any time, but only once per calendar year.
