With health promotion credit offers hitting the internet in recent weeks, it’s worth looking back to see if you’ve been overpaid for health promotion offers.
For many consumers, getting health promotion money is a big deal and a great way to start saving money.
Here’s what you need to know about health promotion marketing, including when you can expect your credit to be credited.
Health Promotion Credits can be used on any purchases that meet the requirements of the American Diabetes Association (ADA).
For example, a $10 gift card can be converted to a $50 health promotion gift card.
The health promotion is credited toward a purchase of a diabetes-related product, such as insulin or blood pressure medication.
To get credit for any health promotion purchase, the consumer must:Be eligible to purchase a health promotionThe product must meet the ADA guidelines for the product(s) being advertised(s):For example, the ADA recommends that a diabetic should not use a product with a label that includes the words, “diabetic” or “diabetics health.”
For example:You must receive a copy of the ADA regulations and guidelines to be eligible for the health promotionIf you do not receive the ADA guidance, you are eligible to buy products that have been approved for ADA approval and are also listed on the ADA website, but have not been reviewed for ADA compliance.
You must be at least 18 years oldYou can use the credit on any product(es) that are listed on your health promotion card(s).
The consumer must also purchase a qualifying diabetic product.
For example:The health promotion should be used for a purchase that is approved by the ADA as a diabetic-specific product.
You must not have a previous relationship with a diabetes product manufacturer.
If you are a current diabetic who has previously purchased products with a non-ADA approved health promotion, the credit can be applied toward a future purchase of the same diabetes-specific diabetic product that you were previously eligible to use for.
For more information, see the ADA’s website on diabetes products.
You may receive a health promotional gift card with any qualifying diabetic gift cardYou may also be eligible to get a health Promotion credit for your other purchases, but it’s important to note that you must first apply the credit to your next eligible purchase, and not your previous one.
For example if you received a health credit for a $30.00 purchase of insulin, but you have a $100.00 qualifying purchase of glucose, you would receive the $100 health promotion.
For a $40.00 transaction, you may be eligible only to get the $50.00 health promotion from your other $60.00 purchases.
For the same $60 purchase, you can also receive a $20.00 credit for the purchase of an insulin pump that meets the ADA requirements for a diabetic product(:The ADA has set minimum purchase requirements for certain products.
For these minimum requirements, the customer must buy a minimum of 2.5 liters (9.5 ounces) of blood sugar-control products.
The minimum purchase requirement applies to the entire product line.
If the customer is using a device that has been approved by an ADA certified healthcare professional, the product must be an approved diabetic device.
For more information on minimum purchase rules, see our FAQ on the minimum purchase for a product.
You can also get a $1,000 health promotion for purchasing a blood glucose monitor.
This is a great opportunity to take advantage of a health benefit you already own.
It may not be the best use of your health credit, but if you’re eligible, it is a way to get your blood sugar levels checked in the field and improve your health.
For some people, this could be the perfect health promotion to give to a family member or loved one.
The ADA’s guidelines also state that consumers should purchase products that meet specific criteria to qualify for the $1 million health promotion payment.
For instance, an eligible diabetic can purchase a blood pressure monitor that meets ADA standards and must have been purchased with a qualifying diabetes product, including a glucose monitor, insulin pump, or other diabetes product that meets other ADA requirements.
You also may be able to get some of the health credit you have been awarded through health promotion programs from other health promotion issuers.
For most health promotion products, the $10 minimum purchase is the minimum required purchase for the promotion.
But some products, such a insulin pump or blood glucose testing kit, do not meet these requirements.
If you are looking to use the $5 credit on a blood sugar test, you will need to purchase at least $5 worth of products to qualify.
For the most part, the cost of buying products with the $0 credit is not that much compared to the cost to purchase the products with your other credit.
For many consumers that are eligible for these types of health promotion rewards, there is a chance that you may receive an extra $100 or more of health promotional credit
