• Get reminders for important healthy actions: flu shot and other vaccinations; scheduling primary care visits and screenings; and refilling and picking up prescriptions.
• Get tips to sleep better, improve nutrition and increase mindfulness.
• Build healthy habits through challenges and daily activity.
• Get support for serious health moments, such as finding lower-cost options for lab and imaging tests like MRIs.
Who can enroll?
The Attain program is available to Aetna® commercial medical members aged 18 and above. Other eligibility and participation requirements, including certain state restrictions and exclusions, may apply.
How do I earn rewards?
Hit your activity goals and complete healthy actions to earn points. Activity goals are based on your weight and sex. Some healthy actions are based on your personal health history. Meet your weekly activity goals to earn enough points each month to cover your Apple Watch payment (if eligible). Or use your points to get gift cards from popular retailers like CVS, Amazon, Target and Best Buy. Find out which rewards you’re eligible for by downloading and logging in to Attain.
How is it determined which rewards I am eligible for?
Eligibility for particular incentives varies by health plan type and location. Download the Attain app and sign in to see which categories of incentives are available to you based on your health plan.
Do I need an Apple Watch?
Yes. Activity from your Apple Watch — along with your Aetna health history — powers the program.
Can I earn an Apple Watch?
Depending on your health plan, you could be eligible to earn a base model Apple Watch Series 3 (38 mm) over 24 months. If eligible, you will purchase the watch using the Attain app. All you’ll pay initially is a one-time activation fee of $15 plus sales tax. You can choose to upgrade to a different model for an additional up-front cost. You will use the points you earn in Attain to cover all or part of the monthly payment of your Apple Watch.
*Goals and suggested health actions should not replace your doctor’s advice. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from meeting your goals, or if your doctor advises you not to take part in physical activity, there may be an opportunity for you to earn the same reward in a different way.

Ratings and Reviews
The huge draw for this program as many have stated is it explicitly over and over, was advertised that anyone who is eligible could get a “free”/earn a watch through participation in the program. Once you pre signed up it strongly implied that if they let you download the app at all, you were “in.”
However I’ve had enough interesting experience with....less than transparent marketing practices recently to have not signed any of the information releases in the app. I downloaded to see whether they guaranteed the watch order first before telling you to sign the documents or, in words, you needed to sign the agreements as part of ordering the watch. That’s the only way I would have believed that it was a “real” attainable benefit. However, it was clear to me that that was not the case, and the fact that you need to agree to give all your information BEFORE learning the terms of ANY available rewards, was a huge red flag to me.
It’s possible this program is well intended but at this point it really doesn’t seem worth the time and effort of having an app that maybe helps them collect data on YOU, but it doesn’t seem to offer much use to the end user that you couldn’t just as easily have by using apples pre existing “health” app, and or MyFitnessPal.
Has Not Worked Since 5/31
My best friend and I have used this app religiously to try and help provide the data needed to improve the app. In the beginning, if the app glitches and it missed recording a day of activity or points you could contact them and they’d reach back out within 1 day and manually fix your points. Awesome. Until the last week of May. My best friend and I noticed that she was getting action points triple what I was for the exact same actions. Then it stopped giving points altogether. Hers stopped as well. Last week I noticed it “greyed out” and REMOVED points already earned on days my Apple Health App clearly shows I over achieved. Just now- it deleted my ENTIRE LAST WEEK for both of us. As if 5/31 they also removed both of our ability to contact them through the app to report any of this. I’m sorry but this is just not ready for production. Besides that- we are busting our butts for pennies. To all those that thought you were getting a watch, I feel for you, but I suspected it would likely leave me owing money instead of earning anything.
So far so good
The only downfall so far is the app is glitchy , closes when I want to see activity history sometimes asks me to sign in again and can be slow to update.
I’ve been looking to get healthier and recently started my own program when I came across this. I was able to get the watch through this program and have found it to really encourage me to keep moving through the day. Unfortunately my job is mostly sitting so hitting the goal was difficult at first but I’m finding adding a little activity to my day does the trick. I agree the program was vague at first and didn’t offer much information before signing up but so far so good. I even got a couple coworkers to sign up with me.
I think it’s great that this insurance company is giving back. With as much as we pay there should be programs like this to help us stay healthy.
