Frequently Asked Questions

Prizes?  Did someone say PRIZES?  What do I have to do?

I'm not on the Einstein health plan.  Why would I participate in the new LiveWell program (a partnership with RedBrick Health)?
Any employee who works 40 hours or more each pay period, whether or not you're on the Einstein health plan, (and your spouse if he or she IS on the Einstein health plan) may use RedBrick's fun and engaging digital wellbeing tools and earn entries into prize drawings for completing healthy activities listed in your RedBrick Health account.

My spouse is on my Einstein health plan.  How does he/she complete Healthy Steps?
Your spouse should go to or download the RedBrick Health app on his or her phone to register for a RedBrick account.  To register, your spouse will need to enter their own information along with your employee ID number.  Your spouse can also participate in the healthy activities listed and get entered into the RedBrick quarterly drawings.  By the spouse completing Healthy Steps in his/her account, you, the employee, will avoid paying an additional premium of $40 per pay.

How do LiveWell, Healthy Steps, and RedBrick Health relate?
