If you were an ExerciseRewards member prior to 2015, you will not be asked to re-approve the data exchange from your fitness facility to ASH. Your fitness facility will continue to submit visit data to ASH.
Upon completion of the required points or visits you may earn Rewards. As agreed between your health plan and ASH concerning the ExerciseRewards program, you will be notified of your eligibility to redeem a reward via email. ASH will arrange for your reward to be issued to you within thirty (30) days of meeting the rewards threshold. You must redeem your reward within thirty (30) days of the end of your reward period.
