Be Active™ Exercise Reward Program

South Country offers the Be Active™ program that rewards members for exercising. South Country AbilityCare, SingleCare, SharedCare, MSC+ and SeniorCare Complete members will be eligible for up to $20 off the cost of their monthly health club membership fees. There is no limit per household, as long as each participant is eligible and enrolled during the respective month and has a paid health club membership. Here’s how it works:

  1. JOIN a participating health club. Click here to find a participating health club in your community (external link). Is your local club not on the list? If not, call Member Services for help nominating your health club for the Be Active™ program.
  2. SIGN UP for the Be Active™ program. Fill out the Be Active™ program enrollment form at your health club. Remember to bring your member ID card with you. Or go to NIHCArewards.org. Under MEMBER options choose First Time Enrollment. Follow the steps to get enrolled. You can also scan the QR code on this page to start to enroll.
  3. EXERCISE! SingleCare, SharedCare and MSC+ members will be reimbursed up to $20 off your monthly membership fee each month with a minimum of four visits per month. SeniorCare Complete and AbilityCare members will be reimbursed up to $20 off your monthly membership fee each month with no minimum amount of visits. We recommend you record your attendance at a health club for each workout completed.

Members must be enrolled with South Country and the health club during the month they exercise. Members must complete the Be Active™ program enrollment prior to participating. You’ll see your discount 30-60 days after you’ve exercised. You’ll continue to get the discount every month you’re eligible.
