Hemophilia Outreach Center’s Fitness Reimbursement Program
Physical activity has many benefits to our health. In the past, the HOC has offered yoga and other fitness programs here at the Center. We know that for many people getting to the Center in Green Bay may not always be convenient. Therefore, we want to give all patients the opportunity to join a fitness center of their choice, in the area in which they live. In order to participate, you must be an active patient of the Hemophilia Outreach Center and attend your annual appointments.

How it works:
HOC will reimburse each patient up to $180 per year for a fitness membership or classes (example: YMCA, Anytime Fitness, Yoga, Karate, and Swimming)

HOC will reimburse the patient as required documentation is submitted.

To apply:
Complete a fitness reimbursement agreement and submit proper documentation when requested.

You must give the Hemophilia Outreach Center permission to track your usage of the fitness center. Payments will only be made to patients who use the fitness center 4 times each month.

If you have additional questions or would like help in finding a fitness center in your area, do not hesitate to call – 920-965-0606.
