UnitedHealthcare adds Apple Watch to Motion program with option to 'walk it off'
November 14, 2018 / Evan Sweeney
Beginning this month, UnitedHealthcare members in some employer-sponsored plans will be able to receive a new Apple Watch and pay the insurer back simply by walking. UnitedHealthcare said it is integrating Apple Watches into its existing wellness program called Motion that rewards members for meeting certain walking goals. Starting this month, the insurance giant is expanding its wearable offerings to include the Apple Watch Series 3—the newest Apple Watch on the market. Members that already own any Apple Watch model will be allowed to connect into the program and track their walking goals associated with financial rewards. Those that don't have the Apple Watch can order the device—paying for tax and shipping upfront—and then walk off the purchase price over the course of six months.
