ALADS Anthem Blue Cross Gym Membership Directions

ALADS Anthem Blue Cross Health Plan Members:

Happy New Year! Today begins the first day of the ALADS Anthem Blue Cross Gym Membership.

Below is the info you need to know to setup your gym membership:

ALADS is proud to now provide gym memberships and a new Mobile Health app to all members and their dependents over 18 enrolled in an Anthem Blue Cross medical plan. Your new gym membership is offered through Healthy Lifestyles and will allow you access to over 10,000 fitness centers across the country! All you need to start working out is your Healthy Lifestyles membership ID number. The best way to manage your new gym membership will be through the new Anthem Mobile Health app.

The Mobile Health app will also serve as your one-stop for all of your Anthem Blue Cross plan information and other ALADS benefits. Moving into this New Year, ALADS continues to provide some of the most exclusive benefits to members and their families. Best of all, these new benefits are now available at no cost to all members and dependents over the age of 18 enrolled in an ALADS Anthem Blue Cross medical plan! Use this year as your opportunity to take-charge of your health and well-being through the new gym membership and Anthem Mobile Health app!

Healthy Lifestyles Gym Membership

The ALADS Anthem Blue Cross medical plans now include gym memberships at no additional cost. Not only is the monthly membership free, the annual fees and sign-up fees are fully-covered at each of the 10,000 gyms included in the network. Anthem's Healthy Lifestyles program includes some of the most popular fitness centers across the country. To quickly find fitness centers located near you, just go to https://prime.healthways.com/FitnessCenter/Search and search by your address and city or zip code. This feature is also available on the Anthem Mobile Health app and the Healthy Lifestyles website.

Through the program you will not be tied down to one facility; instead you can go to an Anytime Fitness one day and then go to an LA Fitness the very next day, even if it's in another state! Simply show your Healthy Lifestyles membership ID card, or Healthy Lifestyles membership ID number, at the front desk of any participating gym and you're ready to start working out. Please note that some gyms may issue an individual copy of their own membership ID card to you as well.

Anthem Mobile Health App Features

Sometimes managing your family's healthcare can be difficult and confusing. That's why ALADS has partnered with Anthem to create a user-friendly app for you and your family. The Anthem Mobile Health app is now available to all members and dependents over the age of 18 enrolled in an ALADS Anthem Blue Cross medical plan. On the new Mobile Health app you now have access to exclusive features including:

  • View your Anthem Blue Cross deductibles and balances
  • View and download ID cards
  • Access your benefit summaries
  • Find an Anthem Blue Cross doctor or dentist
  • Access information and links on other benefits included with your ALADS Anthem Blue Cross medical plan
  • Consult a physician 24/7 through LiveHealth Online
  • Manage your gym membership

How Can I Download and Register for the Mobile Health App?

The ALADS Mobile Health app is now accessible via smartphone, tablet, or smart watch and runs on both iOS and Android devices. Go to the App Store or Play Store and download the Mobile Health Consumer app. Open the app and select "Register Now" and on the next screen enter your first and last name, last four digits of your social security number, and your birthday (example: 05/23/1985). You will automatically be provided with a username. You can choose to keep this username or create a new one. You can now choose your password and enter your email address. For step by step directions click HERE.

You can also access the Mobile Health app on the web if you do not have a smartphone or up-to-date mobile device. You and your dependents over the age of 18 can register for Anthem Mobile Health online at https://www.mobilehealthconsumer.com/web/pages/login.html. Each eligible member of your family will need to create their own username and password to access their version of the Mobile Health app.

During these first few weeks of January, all enrolled members who download and register for the ALADS Mobile Health Consumer app will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win an iPad!

How Can I Register for my Gym Membership?

While you can sign-up for your gym membership directly on the Mobile Health app on your phone, for a preferred experience we recommend using a desktop or tablet for the initial registration process. On the Mobile Health home screen, click the "Healthy Lifestyles Gym Membership" tile and navigate to the "Go to Website" button on the next screen. Alternatively, you can register directly on www.MyHealthyLifestyles.com.

On the Healthy Lifestyles website, click "Sign Up." Please note, your enrolled dependents over the age of 18 will need to complete their own registration for a free gym membership. On the next screen enter your first name, last name, date of birth, postal code and gender. Click "Next" and continue to create a username and password by entering your email address and challenge questions.

Return to the Healthy Lifestyles home screen, enter your newly created username and password and click "Sign In." Once you have agreed to the Healthy Lifestyles terms and conditions, your Healthy Lifestyles membership ID card will be mailed directly to your house. Once you have registered, you will have the option to complete a Well-Being Assessment or you can skip it by selecting "I'd rather do this later. Let me create my Well-Being Plan without it."

However, you don't need to wait to receive your physical membership ID card to start going to the gym; all you will need is your membership ID number. You can access this number on the Healthy Lifestyles website under the Resources and Tools tab. Click on Fitness Centers and select Print a Temporary Card. Simply print out this screen, or write down your 16 digit membership ID number and show it to the front desk at any participating gym. 

If you have trouble signing up for your gym membership, please call Benefit Service Center at (818) 678-0040 or toll-free at (800) 842-6635.
