Why Can’t Our Members Stop Dancing?

By Kerri Convery

They’re tapping their toes, shimmying their shoulders, and moving to the music­—all because of their health benefits? You got that right. As an extension of our Get Healthy, Get HaPi campaign, we’re asking our members to tell us why they love their plan, by showing us their HaPi Dance.

Check out this video for a sneak peek.

Last year, we launched Get Healthy, Get HaPi—a campaign that highlights our 50-year promise to bring more joy into the health care conversation, with affordable coverage and unique plans that guide people on their way to better well-being.

This year, we’re building on that promise with some truly dance-worthy benefits­–like a bigger-than-ever fitness reimbursement, free virtual urgent care appointments with Doctor on Demand, lower co-pays, and even acupuncture and chiropractor visits.

So, our members are getting down for the benefits that really matter in their lives. And it might be helping them get even healthier. Research shows that doing things that make you happy is good for your health. In one study, people with a positive outlook were three times more effective at fighting off the common cold.1 And being happy may even reduce your risk of heart disease by up to 26%.2


"We remain accountable to the needs of our members by offering affordable plans, superior service, and innovative tools and resources. And by continuing to make improvements to these offerings, we are always focused on both the health and happiness of our members.”


“We live by Get Healthy, Get HaPi here at Harvard Pilgrim,” said Rick O’Connor, vice president of marketing. “At times, your health can be a stressor, which is why we don’t want your health care plan to be. We remain accountable to the needs of our members by offering affordable plans, superior service, and innovative tools and resources. And by continuing to make improvements to these offerings, we are always focused on both the health and happiness of our members.”

Here at Harvard Pilgrim, we’ve always believed in the importance of total well-being. It is just as much mental as it is physical. Getting healthier isn’t a straight path in one direction; it’s an interconnected web between and within all of us. And HaPi Dance might just bring it all together.
