HealthBucks Program: Get Paid to Lose or for Already Having a Healthy Weight

Yweight is a 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.
