Wondering When You'll Receive the $200 card from HPHC?

For employees that have already completed their 200 points: HPHC has mailed out cards at the end of December. You should have received an e-mail from HPHC if you have reached your 200 points in mid-December.

For qualifying and covered spouses that have completed 50 points: HPHC has mailed out cards out at the end of December. You should have received an e-mail from HPHC if you have reached your 50 points in mid-December.

Beginning in January 2017, HPHC will be on campus monthly to distribute gift cards to employees that complete their points each month.  Once you have reached your goal, HPHC will send you a confirmation e-mail letting you know how and when to pick up your card.


If you're covered by one of our medical plans, you can receive up to $300 for enrolling in a qualified weight loss program and/or a gym membership: 

  • Fitness Reimbursement. If you belong to a qualified health and fitness facility for four months in a calendar year, HPHC will reimburse you (and your covered dependents) up to $150.
  • Weight Loss Programs. HPHC will also reimburse you and your covered dependents up to $150 for fees paid for qualified weight loss programs, including WeightWatchers traditional and at-work programs as well as hospital-based weight loss programs.
