Important Information for Blue Cross Wellness Benefit Members 

Register with the Bodyshaping office using your most current insurance card. Even if the class is part of a Community Ed program you must register with Bodyshaping By Sandy in order to use your BlueCross Benefit.

On your first day of class, you will receive a “BlueCross Packet” That contains all the info and forms you will need to complete the session. In this packet you will find: 

BlueCross Responsibility form: This states that you are responsible for paying the full cost of the class should your claim be denied for any reason (this includes but is not limited to missed classes, change or loss of insurance, over limit, lapse in coverage etc.). This is mandatory to participate. 

Please note: BlueCross performs regular audits and may choose to assess classes taken in previous semesters.

BlueCross Signature Sheet: In addition to the regular sign in page you will receive a separate BlueCross Signature Sheet. Each time you come to class, you will need to sign a full signature and date on this sheet. Blue Cross uses this to verify your presence at the class. Please follow directions on the sheet carefully.

Attendance Requirements to use BlueCross Wellness Benefit: You must attend or make up ALL classes you have registered for. 
EX: if you sign up for 1 class/ week (10 classes total) you must return 10 signatures on your sheet at the end of the session. You will be required to pay for ALL classes not covered by your insurance.

As with any Bodyshaping class, you may make up any class you have missed. Makeups may even be done ahead of time if you have a planned absence. All makeups must be completed within the same semester. You may attend any type of class at any location for a makeup. Please call to schedule any makeups.

As the insurance holder it is your responsibility to keep track of your insurance renewal* dates as well as the number of classes you have taken during the year. We appreciate your cooperation!

*Renewal date: the date each year your benefits renew. If your effective date is 1/2015 then your insurance renews each January, so each January you are eligible for up to 20 fitness classes through Bodyshaping By Sandy that may be used for class sessions throughout the year. Free classes do not carry over if not used.
