Be active. Be healthy. Be rewarded.
Introducing Anthem RewardsSM, an innovative health and fitness program for Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield members.
An active lifestyle deserves to be rewarded. That’s why Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield developed Anthem Rewards, the program that “rewards” you for maintaining a regular routine of physical activity. Participation is available for eligible Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield members who are 13 years of age and older.
