When you keep engaging with the Virgin Pulse portal throughout the year, you'll have the chance to receive financial rewards! The more you interact with the system, the more points you accrue. These points are directly translated to financial rewards added to your OHIO paycheck. See the rewards image below for information about reward levels.
As with other areas of the Healthy OHIO program, Virgin Pulse is for employees and spouses/partners who are enrolled in the OHIO medical plan.
New Employees/Spouses/Partners: Please note that it can take up to one quarter (3 months) for new employees to be processed and uploaded into the Virgin Pulse system. If you are trying to enroll and receive an eligibility error, it simply means that your eligibility status has not yet been received.
