Health Education Classes

Health classes can help you optimize your health. As part of your PacificSource medical coverage, you may be able to participate in health education classes and receive reimbursement..

How does this work?

The program will reimburse eligible PacificSource medical members up to a maximum of $150 per member per plan year for health and wellness classes. Covered dependents are also eligible for this program.
