Take Steps to be Discontinued as of January 1, 2015
We are discontinuing Take Steps as of January 1, 2015. The program is being discontinued primarily due to a decline in use over the years and the availability of newer and more relevant mobile and app-based programs in the market. The Clinical Employer Support Team is continually evaluating alternative programs and some options are included in the FAQ below.
Effectively immediately, we are no longer offering Healthy Competitions through Take Steps. Employers can still export any past competitions through the end of the year.
If your employees are currently using Take Steps to earn ActiveRewards and their contract ends 1/1/15, they will need to finish up any programs before 12/31/14 to receive credit for their current ActiveRewards program. If their current plan (contract date) renews off cycle, meaning its start date was after 01/01/2014, we will work to reconcile any Take Steps program still in progress on 12/31/14 after the first of the year. Your employees can continue earning ActiveRewards for tracking their healthy activities using the "My Diary," "My Nutrition Tracker," or "My Fitness Tracker," programs available on the Rewards Scorecard.
