United Healthcare said it is expanding its Healthy Savings program offering discounts on prequalified healthy foods to people in northern Illinois and northwest Indiana enrolled in a United Healthcare insurance plan.
Healthy Savings provides potential monthly savings of $150 on prequalified healthy foods from more than 140 food and beverage brands. Plan participants receive a Healthy Savings card by mail and scan their card during checkout at 184 Jewel-Osco, 32 Mariano’s and 45 Shop 'n Save locations throughout Illinois and northwest Indiana. Forty-four Country Market stores will be added in the fall, the company said.
“Healthy Savings makes it easier for people to make healthier food choices and improve their diets, which will make a tremendous difference in their health and well-being,” said Colleen Van Ham, president and CEO, UnitedHealthcare of Illinois and Northwest Indiana. Promotional discounts are offered weekly on products that are in the healthiest one-third of items in a typical grocery store. Healthy Savings offers include discounts on items such as milk, whole-grain bread, lean meats, yogurt and produce.
The food items are scored by the nationally renowned Guiding Stars nutrition guidance system, which rates the nutritional density of foods using information from the nutrition facts label and the ingredients list.
