Getting started

There are three ways to access Virgin Pulse:

  1. Access the Virgin Pulse desktop application through Jones Associate Connection (must be on Edward Jones network).
  2. Go to the Virgin Pulse website: join.virginpulse.com/EdwardJones
  3. Scan the QR code to download the Virgin Pulse app.

Note:  Spouses/domestic partners will need to set up their own unique Virgin Pulse account.

Earn up to $1,600 off your 2024 medical premiums

Associates enrolled in the Edward Jones medical plan can earn discounts toward medical premiums by completing health and wellbeing activities through Virgin Pulse.

For 2024, you can earn up to:

  • $800 for individual coverage
  • $1,600 for family coverage

Note:  If you have family coverage and do not cover a spouse/domestic partner, you will automatically receive $800 in medical premium discounts for your oldest enrolled child.

Click on each box below to learn how you and your enrolled spouse/domestic partner can earn the medical premium discount:

Earn $100 when you complete a 15-minute online questionnaire regarding your nutrition, physical activity, and other lifestyle choices that helps you gain insight into your current health status.

Earn $300 when you complete activities of your choice (for example, getting preventive care screenings, tracking your physical activity, and contributing to your 401(k) or HSA). A full list of activities and 2023 medical premium discount values can be found on the Virgin Pulse platform > Home > Rewards or on the Virgin Pulse mobile app.

Upload or fax your biometric screening results to Virgin Pulse, showing results in desired range for:

  • Blood pressure: At or below 129/80
  • Total cholesterol: At or below 199.9 OR Ratio (TC/HDL) at or below 4.0
  • Glucose: At or below 139
  • Body Mass Index (BMI): At or below 29.9

The amount you earn depends on how many of the above measures are in the desired range:

  • $400 for 3 out of 4 measures
  • $200 for 2 out of 4 measures
  • $100 for 1 out of 4 measures

If you think you and/or your spouse/domestic partner might be unable to meet the standard for a reward, you will qualify for an opportunity to earn the same reward by different means. You may contact Virgin Pulse at 833-880-4209 and they will work with you to find a wellbeing program with the same reward that is right for you in light of your health status.

Earn up to $105 in PulseCash in 2023

When you participate in wellbeing activities on the Virgin Pulse platform, you earn points. Those points help you achieve Levels, which earn you PulseCash that can be redeemed for gift cards, workout gear, and more. You can even donate your reward!

Log into your Virgin Pulse account to view how much PulseCash you've earned:

  • On the website, you‘ll see your total points and PulseCash at the top of the page. To view your point earnings for specific months, days or activities, select the Home tab, then select Statement.
  • On the Virgin Pulse mobile app, you can see all your point earnings under Rewards.

Important notes:

  • You’re not eligible to earn PulseCash if you’re a Hawaii resident enrolled in the HMSA Medical Plan.
  • PulseCash is subject to taxation upon redemption. For details on activities and points values, go to the Virgin Pulse platform > Rewards > How to Earn.

Tobacco users can earn back the full tobacco surcharge

If you want help quitting or cutting back on tobacco, get personalized support and guidance from a coach through the Tobacco Cessation Coaching program, offered by Virgin Pulse.

  • Learn how to set a quit date, spot and outsmart your tobacco triggers, and get results.
  • Your highly trained coach will guide you in setting goals that make sense for your lifestyle.
  • Earn back the full tobacco surcharge applied to your medical plan premium.

Completing the tobacco cessation coaching program is defined by the completion of three coaching calls with a Virgin Pulse Health Coach. To get started, log into your Virgin Pulse account, click the Benefits tab, then choose “View All” and scroll down or search to find "Tobacco Cessation - Phone Coaching."

Start a fitness routine

The benefits of physical activity are endless. Incorporating physical activity can be easy, fun, and doesn't require hours and hours to be effective.

Just 20 minutes a day — like taking a walk, gardening, swimming, or doing yoga — can help improve your physical and emotional health. Some benefits are immediate such as stress relief, reduced anxiety, and better sleep. Long-term benefits can include improved strength and balance, weight loss, reduced blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, and reduced risk of Type 2 Diabetes.

Here are some helpful resources to get you moving:

For more personalized recommendations, log into your Virgin Pulse account and select "Benefits." Recommended programs will be listed and are based on your My Pulse Health Assessment results. You may need to scroll down to view the list and to see additional options. Click "View All" from the menu at the top.

Explore nutritional resources

You can access several nutritional resources through Virgin Pulse (select Benefits at the top).

  • RethinkCare (formerly WHIL): Boost Physical Health – Five short sessions on healthy eating, with takeaway tips
  • Journeys: Five daily, self-guided courses on nutrition, including Eat Like a Mediterranean, Fit in More Fruit, Go Mediterranean and More Veggies in No Time
  • Virgin Pulse Nutrition Guide: Pick a nutritional profile for healthy tips and recipes, and keep track of your progress

In addition to these programs, take advantage of Real Appeal, a weight loss and healthy living program that offers one-on-one coaching, group meetings, a success kit and a mobile app—at no cost to you.
