Get a $5 Walmart e-gift card

Food for thought.  MHC health plan participants can earn a $5 Walmart e-gift card for enrolling in a Learn to Live online program!  If you’ve previously enrolled in Learn to Live, you can still earn a $5 Walmart e-gift card by completing at least one lesson within one of the Learn to Live programs. 

 

MHC health plan employees and their family members (ages 13+) can access Learn to Live’s interactive programs, tools, and resources at no cost. With programs that address stress, anxiety and worry, depression, insomnia, and social anxiety, Learn to Live is an online cognitive behavioral therapy program that helps you learn to work through those issues in the privacy of your own home — and it’s proven to work.

 

Learn to Live is a stand-alone program that keeps your individual information 100% confidential. Your information is never shared with anyone including Blue Cross, your employer or outside party.

 

Simply go to www.learntolive.com/partners and enter the access code MHCWC2019

Hurry, this promotion ends on June 30th, 2019 and is limited to the first 1,000 people.
