Member Health Rewards Program

COVID-19 Vaccine Member Health Rewards

If you received your COVID-19 vaccine, please be patient as there may be delays in confirming your vaccination and mailing your gift card(s) for the COVID-19 Vaccine Member Health Rewards program. If you received a vaccine that requires 2 doses, you may receive your gift card for the 1st and 2nd doses at different times. Thank you for your patience.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Are you eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine member health reward?

CalOptima members 12 years of age or older are eligible to receive a $25 gift card for each COVID-19 vaccine dose received or a $25 gift card if you get the single-dose vaccine. Members younger than 12 years of age can participate once the vaccine is approved for children 11 years and younger. Please note that you must be eligible on the date of service to receive the gift card(s). Members in long-term care (LTC), the PACE program or those in Kaiser are not eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine member health reward program.

2. How can you get your health reward?

Members do not need to submit anything to CalOptima. Gift cards will be sent after CalOptima confirms through the California Immunization Registry that you received your COVID-19 vaccine. We will send your gift card to the mailing address that CalOptima has on file for you. To make sure we have the correct address on file, please login to the CalOptima Member Portal or create an account. You can also call Customer Service to update your mailing address.
