Ways to Save on Health Care and Earn Cash for Committing to Wellness

Published July 14, 2022

With the cost of food, gas and more on the rise, being a smart health care consumer can not only help you save money but earn some, too.


As a SchoolCare participant, you have access to no-cost care like preventive screenings and digital exercise therapy, plus, you can save by:

  • Using in-network providers for medical and behavioral health care
  • Accessing your myCigna portal to research cost for care and prescription drugs
  • Seeking care via telehealth options (save on gas, too!)
  • And visiting urgent care or convenience care clinics instead of the emergency department when you need immediate, non-emergency care

Also, with the Good For You! Well-Being Program, SchoolCare subscribers can earn up to $800 each year in wellness incentives and covered spouses and retirees can earn up to $400.
