Balance can help you live a healthier life and reward you for doing so
Finding the resources you need to live a healthy lifestyle can be tricky—and staying motivated can be even harder still. That's why we're introducing Balance: an easy-to-use, comprehensive tool that will help you stay healthy.
To help keep you motivated, every time you take a step to maintain or improve your health, you will earn badges to show your progress and points that you can redeem for a chance to win great prizes.
Signing in is easy and your information is confidential
Everything is done through the Alberta Blue Cross member site. Simply sign in as you normally would, click "Your benefits" and select "Balance" from the drop-down menu. Any information you provide within the site is anonymized, meaning that individually-identifying information cannot be seen by anyone.
Evaluate your health
Balance includes a health risk assessment tool that gives you a snapshot of your current health and provides the basis for everything you do in Balance.
Learn and earn
When it comes to your health, knowledge is power. Balance is loaded with resources compiled from a range of Canadian health and chronic disease associations to make sure you receive accurate and up-to-date information on a variety of health issues.
It pays to eat your vegetables
Set up daily reminders to track your fruit and vegetable intake. Then, whenever fruits and vegetables become a part of your meal, sign into Balance.
It pays to take your medications
Balance will help remind you to take your medication and will even reward you for doing so.
Track your health
Maybe you're not taking any medications or you already eat enough fruits and vegetables. If that's the case, you can also track your steps, your weight, your blood pressure, your cholesterol and much more.
Achieving a healthy lifestyle is hard work, so why not reward yourself with some great prizes? And when we say great prizes, we really mean it. Redeem your points for chances to win Fitbits, GoPros, weekend getaways and more. You can also share your badges on social media to show your friends and family the progress you're making in your health and wellness journey.
Balance isn't just for you
All eligible plan members and their dependants 16 years of age or older can use Balance.
