What is Yweight?
HealthBucks Program: Get Paid to Lose or for Already Having a Healthy Weight
Yweight is an ongoing weight management campaign to incentivize members to engage in long term healthy behaviors that reduce risk factors related to excess weight. This program is for both individuals who already have a healthy weight, and for those who need to lose weight. It is a self-directed program; however, the Manatee YourChoice Health Plan provides multiple resources and programs for members to help them reach their goals. Refer to the Yweight Program Guidelines for details.
