How do I get started?
You can begin by registering at EinsteinLiveWell.RedBrickHealth.com or download the app for iPhone and Android devices.  Simply search for RedBrick Health on the App Store or Google Play.  

My spouse is on my Einstein health plan.  How does he/she complete Healthy Steps?
Your spouse should go to EinsteinLiveWell.RedBrickHealth.com 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.

What do we get for participating?
All benefit-eligible employees (anyone who works 40 bi-weekly hours or more) and covered spouses/partners can earn entries into prize drawings for completing healthy activities listed at EinsteinLiveWell.RedBrickHealth.com.  For employees on the health plan and covered spouses/partners participating in Healthy Steps, employees on the health plan will avoid paying an additional premium of $40 per pay.

Who is eligible to participate in the new LiveWell program and receive rewards?
All benefit-eligible employees as well as their spouses or domestic partners who are enrolled in an Einstein medical plan are eligible to participate.  The Healthy Steps program still only applies to covered employees and spouses/partners on the health plan.

Is there an app?
Yes!  You can do everything from your smart phone.  Search and download the RedBrick Health app for iPhone and Android devices.

Healthy Steps

What is the deadline?
The deadline to complete your Healthy Steps is May 31, 2020.

What information do I need to enter?
You will need to manually enter the date of your physical, mammogram, and colonoscopy, as well as the name of the doctor that performed the exam and the office phone number, in order to complete your steps.  Even if a screening isn't applicable for you yet, you still need to follow the instructions on those screens.  You will also need to complete a health risk assessment.

How does my biometric information get entered?
Once you complete your bloodwork, IBX will receive an insurance claim.  IBX then sends RedBrick this claim after IBX receives it.  RedBrick then uploads your biometrics directly into your portal.  This is the only way this step can be updated!

Why does it say my Healthy Steps are "Potential Earnings"?
Your Healthy Steps won't show as "earned" until all your steps are completed.  For example, if you've entered your information for the physical/mammogram/colonoscopy and completed your Health Risk Assessment, and they show as "Potential Earnings," it's because RedBrick has not received the claim yet from IBX for your biometric data.  The biometric step will show as "available" until RedBrick receives the lab work claim.

How has the Healthy Steps program changed this year?

Some of the major changes include:

  • To confirm participation, go to EinsteinLiveWell.RedBrickHealth.com and enter the information requested directly into the portal.  We are no longer using fax forms!
  • We changed the breast screening requirement for female plan members aged 50+ to require a mammogram once every 2 years.  We also wish to promote our Breast Health experts' belief that the benefits of an annual mammogram (e.g., increasing chances to catch cancer early, have a more successful treatment with the least possible side effects) outweigh the risks (e.g., may not detect all cancers and unnecessary additional testing) and therefore the Einstein health plan continues to cover annual screening mammograms for all women 40 years and older
  • We changed the colonoscopy requirement for all plan members 50+ to instead be a colon cancer screening requirement.  Plan members can now choose to receive the Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) or Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) annually OR complete a colonoscopy once every 10 years.  Speak with your physician for which option is best for you
  • Added back to the Health Steps program is the requirement of a Health Risk Assessment.  Take a few minutes to answer some questions about your health in your RedBrick portal and RedBrick will give you personalized recommendations!
  • Condition based health coaching will no longer be a requirement.  Instead, RedBrick will reach out to plan members to engage in the program and communicate to you all of the benefits the Redbrick portal has to offer, helping guide you to which programs might fit your individual needs.  These calls are completely optional and are there to help you be your most healthy self
  • You need to attest to your tobacco status.  Click here for more information about the Tobacco Surcharge.

How do I confirm my participation in the Healthy Steps program?
To complete participation, you will need to register online at EinsteinLiveWell.RedBrickHealth.com or download the RedBrick Health app, if you haven't done so already.  You will be able to enter information requested in the portal.  We are no longer using fax forms.

  • Get a mammogram...
