The second and third activities of the 2016-2017 Rewards for Wellness Program utilize the exciting RALLY platform offered by UnitedHealthcare through its www.myuhc.com website. If you have not already registered to use www.myuhc.com, please do so today.

Once you have completed the “How to Rally” tutorial, visit www.myuhc.com and begin your RALLY experience right away by registering on RALLY and taking the RALLY Health Survey.  You will know you have completed the RALLY Health Survey when you are given your “RALLY Age.”  Complete the RALLY Health Survey before December 31, 2016 to qualify for a $50 co-share credit incentive!*
