More in Insurance Reimbursement

Get reimbursed to work out.

If your health insurance offers a wellness benefit, Boston University’s Fitness & Recreation Center will provide ONE letter per membership year verifying membership benefit, plan type, payment, and duration.

What do I need to do?

  1. First, check to be sure that your insurance coverage includes a Fitness Benefit and learn about the eligibility requirements before requesting proof of membership from FitRec.
  2. Unless otherwise specified, FitRec will follow the requirements of Boston University’s wellness benefit. You must have been a FitRec member for a full four months (in a calendar year), your payments must meet or exceed $150 in membership fees, and you may only request one letter per membership plan per calendar year. You have until March 31 to claim for the prior calendar year.
  3. Please note: If you do not meet the above requirements and have not provided special instructions, your Fitness Benefit request for reimbursement will not be processed.
  4. Once you are certain that you meet the above requirements, please download and fill out the Insurance Reimbursement Request Form, or stop by the FitRec front desk to complete it.
  5. To submit your request, please drop off the completed form at the FitRec front desk; email Nate Fuller, Membership Graduate Assistant, at perdmbsg@bu.edu; or fax it to 617-353-5147.
  6. Our staff will create a personalized letter that verifies your membership benefits, plan type, payment, and duration. You may pick the letter up at the FitRec front desk. Please allow five business days for pickup requests. Letters will not be mailed.
  7. If you are a member of Blue Cross/Blue Shield Massachusetts, you may complete the BC/BS Fitness Benefit Form.
