Rally ending, Sharecare new health app
 
Heads up if it isn't clear yet, our Rally program is ending so you need to spend your 'coins' by the of end of March if you want to take advantage of that.

Also, I'm concerned about the new Sharecare app that was in part developed by Dr. Oz, who loves to peddle pseudoscience. I wrote HR & ALPA and asked why we are choosing to partner with this service and if we've researched the validity of the service. Might look into it yourself and ask some questions as needed. Sharecare has also been criticized for driving answers toward paid sponsors as well. Not convinced this is the best service for us to utilize to 'earn' our HSA bucks.

But if you get your Chakra adjusted and use essential oils, you get $300.

The bigger issue of sharecare is that HSA rewards are much more dependant on enrolling in "programs" that essentially "track" you regularly. Not a fan. Much more difficult to accumulate rewards.

Sadly that ship sailed long ago. I fought this battle at my previous shop when they switched from a 'give' to suddenly make us jump through hoops for the same money. Not a fan.

I noticed the same thing too. Kinda sucks. However, you can still get a lot from doing simple things (family coverage):
Quote:

  • $300: Complete the survey
    • Takes about 10-15 minutes, and nothing says you have to be truthful on it. You just have to complete it.
  • $50: Sign in to ShareCare app
    • Install, deny all permissions, sign in, uninstall. Immediate $50 (as in, I signed into the app and refreshed the webpage...$50. Boom.)
    • Unfortunately, it doesn't work on the iPad, so you can't sign in on our EFB's to keep whatever personal info private. It'd work on a burner phone though.
  • $200: Annual physical
    • Covered by medical insurance and is a good idea anyways.
    • FAA medical doesn't count, but that's always been the case. Your doctor might be able to work it out with you though, so it doesn't hurt to ask
    • Do the next two at the same time
  • $50: Flu shot
    • You were going to do that anyways, right? RIGHT?
  • $400: Biometric screening
    • This one's a bit more invasive, but if you're otherwise healthy it's easy money. Plus they've expanded the options on how to complete this, making it easier to do. I did mine this morning at Quest.

There's $1000 right there, plus the full $750 for your spouse, plus $250 if you have a child. $2000 for <30 minutes on an overnight and one doctor's visit with two needle pokes for each of you. Plus if you 're doing other health related things anyways, you can get money for them (telehealth appointment, dermatologist appointment, colonoscopy, COVID testing, to name a few).

I've always gotten my $200 for my physical within a week or so of submitting my new FAA medical.

So how do we get the "coins" in our Rally account?

Also, what do they mean by "coins?"

Denny Crane 01-12-2021 02:09 PM

Yeah......where do you check your Rally account?
