Earn rewards for healthy actions. Not all members are eligible to earn an Apple Watch®. Download Attain by Aetna and sign in to see which rewards are available to you.
Designed in collaboration with Apple, the Attain app combines your health history with Apple Watch® activity to offer personalized goals*, achievable actions, and rewards.**
This app integrates with the Health app and helps you:
• Earn rewards for hitting daily active calorie goals.
• 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.
**Eligibility for particular incentives varies by health plan type and location, including availability of Apple Watch as a reward. Download the Attain app and sign in to see which categories of incentives are available to you.
We’re always trying to improve the Attain experience. So in this release, we refined a few things in the interface, fixed some minor bugs, and made the app more stable overall. Enjoy!
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.
Aetna’s tagline should be “You don’t join us. Period!”
I downloaded the app and accumulated points and then switched from being a primary member with Aetna insurance to a dependent member on another Aetna plan. Aetna Attain threw a message about a server unrelated to the actual problem. Called Aetna Attain help desk and got shuttled around to 4 different people before I was advised to create a new account with my primary’s member ID and have the points transferred. Since there’s no way to logout from the app, had to delete and reinstall. LOST ALL DATA. Couldn’t complete new registration and was told to TRY AGAIN IN 7 DAYS. Tried again in 7 days and logged in and then called Aetna Attain help desk to request transfer. They had trouble locating ANY information and after bring placed on hold was told I had a NEW account with my OLD member ID. And that I shouldn’t register under my primary’s member ID. AND that even if I did create a new account THEY COULDN’T (WOULDN’T?) TRANSFER ANY POINTS I HAD ALREADY EARNED. They said they would investigate this and get back to me in 3 days and urged me not to post this review until then. However I am doing this review to make a record of this situation because Aetna Attain does not appear able to track and resolve this issue.
Be Brilliant at the Basics
I’m someone who responds well to micro goals. Small choices and actions that lead to bigger steps. And this app is just that. Small manageable goals that lead to and effect real change in lives. I’m now hitting my activity goals seven days a week and have improved my self care and maintenance through the incentives offered through this app. Be it getting higher quality sleep, embracing mindfulness exercises, drinking more water, or refilling my prescriptions on time, I earn rewards for taking care of myself. While I wish there were more Heath actions prompted: vaccine schedules, physicals, routine bloodwork and prompts for new exercises would be a welcome addition to the challenges I see regularly. And they would help to contribute to a better quality of life overall. I believe in being brilliant at the basics and this app helps me do that. I’ve been using this app since it launched, and I’ve been able to lose roughly twenty pounds. I feel empowered every day.
