You can submit for reimbursement from your HPHC member account, see the instructions below.

Reimbursement is up to $150 per calendar year (i.e., January-December) in total for qualified weight management program fees for the Harvard Pilgrim subscriber and/or their dependents. Programs that qualify for the weight management reimbursement are WW (Weight Watchers) digital program or workshop or a hospital-based weight management program. 

You may receive weight management reimbursement only once per calendar year and you must submit for reimbursement by March 31 of the following year, with all necessary receipts. You may submit for reimbursement after you have accumulated up to $150 in weight management program expenses.
