Sanford Health Plan Fitness Center Reimbursement
Beginning July 1st 2015, all NDPERS members will be moving to the Sanford Health plan. The wellness reimbursement program benefit will not change, but there will be steps to complete in order to continue receiving reimbursement. *Please see Fitness Center Reimbursement Application Form to the right for detailed steps for enrollment.
*Reimbursement Application Form must be submitted to Wellness Center Customer Service Desk in order to continue/begin receiving reimbursement credits with Sanford Health.
**All current participants in the BCBS reimbursement program must complete all steps to continue receiving the benefit from Sanford Health.
Due to NDUS institutions utilizing online enrollment, there will be a one-month reimbursement interruption before the updated Vanco web page is ready. Vanco is the electronic payment solution utilized for transactions from Sanford Health to your bank account. This means that all members in the NDPERS program will not see their July reimbursements until September 25th. At this time, members will see both their July and August reimbursements (minimum 12 visits per month).
