a. The Health Survey provides your personal Health Score, which helps you understand how your daily behaviors and lifestyle may affect your health and wellbeing.
b. Additionally, the information collected will help create your own personalized experience in the Sincerely Health platform.
a. Your score changes based on information about your wellbeing that you provide to us through the Sincerely Health platform. You can improve your Health Score by accomplishing the goals you set in your Sincerely Health account or through sustained activity over time.
a. No. We chose the survey questions and calculated your personal health score based on independent, third-party resources. However, the survey and score shouldn’t be taken as a clinical evaluation of your health (they won’t be reviewed by a medical professional) but are only for informational purposes to help as a starting point for your health journey.
a. The health benefits of physical activity are determined by sustained activity over time, not by a single workout. This is calculated through a type of averaging procedure (called exponentially weighted moving average) that looks back at your activities over the past 60 days. Because of this, if a workout you do today consumes less energy than your current average, your score will drop. This means that your score may fluctuate before stabilizing once enough data can be analyzed and averaged.
a. Setting goals is the first step in the journey to a better you. Set your goals high, don’t stop till you get there and earn points as you progress.
a. If you have not set a goal before, you will see a prompt to start a goal on the main Health dashboard.
b. As you add goals to your active goal list, that list and your progress against those goals will be available to view on your Health dashboard as well.
c. Your Health Score is visualized by a wheel divided into seven lifestyle areas. As you navigate to those sections of the wheel, you can see recommended goals in those lifestyle areas and add them to your list of active goals.
a. Health goals fall into the four categories of Activity, Nutrition, Lifestyle, and Sleep. Goals across those categories are recommended based on information about your wellbeing that you share over time.
a. If you have enabled push notifications on your phone, you will be notified throughout the day for check-ins on your various goals.
b. In your notifications center on the health dashboard, you will be prompted to check-in on your goals throughout the day. Some goals (like sleep for example) are prompted at different times since that might align more closely to when you would be completing those activities.
c. Many of the goals in the Activity, Sleep, or Lifestyle categories can be tracked directly from your connected device. If you don’t want to connect to a device, you can also manually track your activities following the steps below.
a. From the Health Dashboard screen, click on the Activity segment in the My Health Score wheel. This will open the Activity segment.
b. Once here, you should see a button to Log Workout. Select by pressing the arrow to log your workout.

You may have already registered, and you can try to login and use the “forgot pin” prompt.

Alternatively, you can have prescriptions delivered or shipped if they qualify.

a. Caregiver access has been added to support customers needing to manage prescriptions for their minor dependents and other adults. Caregiver access allows you, the caregiver, to link the minor’s/adult’s digital pharmacy account to your existing pharmacy account through the app. Linking a minor's/adult's digital pharmacy account enables you to view, order and manage the minor's/adult's prescription needs in one view. Once the other patient’s pharmacy account is linked, you will have access to perform certain functions on their behalf through your profile and settings.
a. To become a caregiver for a minor (under age 18) you will need to have linked your pharmacy account within the Sincerely, Health mobile app. Within your pharmacy account on the mobile app, you will see an option under settings/menu/caregiver access to add a profile. Click “Add a Profile” and follow the steps to submit a caregiver access request/add a profile. To complete the request, you will need the minor's legal name, prescription number, store number, and date of birth. Once this information is verified, the minor’s digital pharmacy account will be available in your profile section of the app (upper right hand corner of dashboard). Please note that if the minor has not had at least one prescription filled by a Vons pharmacy, you won't be able to link their pharmacy account.
a. To become a caregiver for an adult (over age 18) you will need to have linked your pharmacy account within the Sincerely, Health mobile app. Within your pharmacy account on the mobile app, you will see an option under settings/menu/caregiver access to add a profile. Click “Add a Profile” and follow the steps to submit a caregiver access request/add a profile. To complete the request, you will need the adult's legal name, prescription number, store number, and date of birth. Once verified, we will send a secured request to the other adult via email to grant or deny the caregiver access. Once caregiver access is granted, the caregiver will have access to the other adult's digital pharmacy account within their own profile section of the app (upper right hand corner of dashboard). Please note that if the adult has not had at least one prescription filled by a Vons pharmacy, you won't be able to link their pharmacy account.
a. Caregiver access can be revoked at any time. If you have previously granted caregiver access and wish to remove that access, you can do so through your own pharmacy app by navigating to profile and settings in the upper right-hand corner of the dashboard and clicking on “Manage Profiles”. From there, you can remove caregiver access. If you do not have access to the app, you can call customer support at 877-723-3929 to request the removal of the caregiver access.
The telehealth services are currently available in the following states: AK, CA, MT, OR, TX, and WA. We are working to expand virtual care services to our customers in other locations. Please check back for updates.
The telehealth services are provided through Providence health system/Covenant Health/ExpressCare Virtual.
Anyone with or without insurance can use ExpressCare Virtual. They do not need to be current patients of a health system, medical group or of an Albertsons Company pharmacy.
We implement and maintain security measures and controls to protect your protected health information. There is no protected health information shared between Albertsons and Providence.
Healthy points are available to registered Sincerely Health users who start and complete actions and goals within the Sincerely Health platform.
Healthy points are earned by completing eligible activities within the Sincerely Health platform and do not require purchases to start earning points. Vons for UTM points are earned for every dollar spent on qualifying grocery, pharmacy and other purchases.
Points can be earned through a variety of actions within the Sincerely Health platform, from starting and completing goals to tracking your activity or steps. There might even be a couple of surprises to get you started!
Healthy points can be redeemed for certain grocery coupons available within the Sincerely Health platform. To view and exchange healthy points for available coupons, navigate to the Rewards page from within the Sincerely Health platform.
Healthy points expire on an annual basis. To see more details about points expiration, navigate to the My Health Rewards Activity page within the Sincerely Health platform. Once your Healthy points are exchanged for grocery coupons and you clip the coupon, you will have 30 days to redeem your grocery coupon before it expires.
We want you to get rewarded for healthy choices, but there are some restrictions on the number of times you can earn points for completing a specific goal or action to help make goal setting fun and doable. Research shows we do better when we’re focused on a few goals at a time.
Once clipped, coupons will be automatically added to your Banner for UTM account. During your next qualifying purchase (in-store or online) the coupon will be applied automatically to your account.
Once clipped, all coupons will be automatically added to your My Coupons regardless of if they have been redeemed or not and will be shown there until coupons expire.
