Minnesota Vertical Endeavors gyms are a part of the NIHCA network, which allows our members to qualify for Health Insurance reimbursement.
The amount (if any) for which the member can be reimbursed depends on their insurance carrier. Most people qualify for a $20 reimbursement from their insurance company if they visit Vertical Endeavors at least 12 times per month.
You will need your member number (located on your member key card) to apply.

As of 1/1/2020, all 3M employees and spouses are eligible through the HealthPartner's Frequent Fitness program.
- 3M employees are insured by either HealthPartners OR Blue Cross Blue Shield Minnesota*
- 3M is continuing the fitness reimbursement program through HealthPartners (not BCBSMN)
- 3M-eligible people need to work out 12 times per month to receive up to a $20 reimbursement per month
- Employee + Spouse are eligible
*IF the 3M-eligible person has HealthPartners, they will simply enter their HP insurance information. For those 3M employees who are still insured by BCBSMN, they are still eligible and can participate however they need to enter the instructions below. 3M employees eligible through BCBSMN have received communication with these instructions from JourneyWell.
First and foremost, if the member is Already Enrolled in NIHCArewards, they should NOT enroll a second time.
WHAT TO DO
An Already Enrolled BCBSMN 3M individual would need to log into their Already Enrolled profile in NIHCArewards and change their insurance information to HealthPartners insurance instead of BCBSMN.
- 3M’s specific BCBSMN group # is 3190E
- A BCBSMN 3M Employee will enter their 8 digit 3M ID #; if their ID is only 6 digits, they need to add “01” at the beginning so it is a total of 8 digits long.
- A 3M Spouse enters the employee’s 3M ID # (8 digits) + the spouses full DOB I.E. Employee Id is 98765432 and DOB is 01/22/80 they would enter 98765432012280
If you get a new 3M member that has never enrolled into NIHCArewards, they would go to NIHCArewards and complete the First Time Enrollment choosing HealthPartners as their insurance.
If you are a member of NIHCA and need to sign up for the HealthPartners program, please contact us. Please let us know if you have any questions.
