Curves (fitness)

Make an appointment with curves facility you want to join and complete their Curves enrollment package and the EHP Physical Activity Program Application.  A Note to Curves Members:   The Employee Health Plan only pays 50% for memberships for active EHP members.  Employees who voluntarily or involuntary terminate employment become financially responsible for these memberships.  Curves requests a voided check or credit card as assurance that a membership will be paid.  If you join a Curves facility and then cannot participate for medical reasons, you will need to let the Curves facility know as soon as possible.  If this happens, you must provide the manager at your Curves facility with a letter from your doctor stating that you will not be able to participate for medical reasons and include the period of time your doctor believes you will be unable to participate.

The Physical Activity Program application must be completed when you join either a Cleveland Clinic Owned Fitness Center or Curves. The fitness center or Curves that you join will mail the completed application to the EHP offices. Failure to complete the application will result in non-payment of the program and you will become financially responsible for the entire amount of monthly membership.


The following is what you need to provide when you enroll for a Physical Activity Program: (At any Cleveland Clinic fitness center or Curves fitness center of your choice)
  • Employee Health Plan medical ID card. The EHP ID is required in order to verify eligibility. Each member must present their own medical ID card with their name and ID number on the card.
  • Members (both employees and dependents) must provide the employee badge ID number on the application.
  • A picture ID is also required for verifying identity.
Disclaimer:  At this time, the Health Plan has contractual arrangements with Cleveland Clinic-owned fitness centers and Curves centers, which allows the plan to track participation and health progress according to the regulatory standards we follow. Similar arrangements with other fitness organizations have been explored, but it was not been possible to agree to similar standards. At this time, the only way to meet physical activity goals and earn a lower premium through the voluntary Healthy Choice Program is to join the centers the Clinic has contracted with at no charge or participate with a physical activity device.
