We've Partnered with Fitbit!!

The wait is over! 689 Moving Metro is dedicated to helping you make small changes to become or stay healthy. As part of our ongoing effort to offer you a fun and engaging online platform, we will transition to a new partnership with Fitbit Health Solutions effective January 2019. 
Our partnership with Fitbit will  replace the Go365 program  and the new program will be called   689 Moving Me .”  This program will offer more competitions and opportunities to earn more incentives both monthly and quarterly.
Please see below for FAQ’s related to the change:
 
Why is 689 Moving Metro making this change ?
After gathering feedback from our members we decided to make this change to offer a more simplistic physical well-being program. Why Fitbit? Because our members already identify with the Fitbit brand, most of our members already own a Fitbit device and the platform offers the community/social component that Go365 doesn't have.
 
What will the new program consist of?
The new program will be called  689 Moving Me  and will consist of quarterly challenges (both team and individual) to keep our members engaged.
 
How will we join 689 Moving Me?
If you already have a Fitbit device, an invite will be sent to the email address we have on file prompting members to join our dashboard. 
 
For members who purchase a device through the storefront, your device will be linked to the program once you sync your tracker. 
 
If members do not wish to use a fitness device, they can utilize Fitbit’s mobile app (which uses the members phone sensor to track steps, calories burned, and distance).  Please note:   The app does not track floors, sleep, or active minutes.
 
Will the wellness program offer free Fitbit devices?
The Fitbit Zip device (basic model) will be offered at a very low cost to members. The program will also help offset the cost of higher priced models through the storefront. Also, there will be opportunities to earn FREE devices throughout the year. More information to come.
 
Will members still earn health insurance discounts quarterly?
Absolutely! In fact, we will be increasing the quarterly discount AND members will be able to earn other incentives such as sports tickets, spa retreats, amusement park passes, etc. Additional information will be provided soon.
 
I’m a current Go365 member, what is the last day to redeem my bucks in the mall?
If you have earned bucks through the current Go365 program, you will have until 11:59pm 12/31/18 to access your account. After 12/31, you will no longer have access to your account.
 
We will continue to send updates regarding the transition – stay tuned for more information! 
 
In the meantime, if you have any questions or comments regarding the changes, please email the wellness team:  wellness@tehw.org  or call Wellness Program Manager, Juanita Hawkins, at 202-679-9887. We welcome your feedback and suggestions!
 
Thank you for your patience as we continue to bring you the best options for wellness!

I have other coverage. Can I opt out of Plan coverage?

Yes, if you are a full-time METRO employee or working under the supplemental collective bargaining agreement (the “New Service Agreement”), you may be eligible to opt out of coverage and receive a cash payment amount. You will need to provide proof that you have coverage from a source other than METRO.
