Discounts Focused on Your results

The MLC On Track program uses the Garmin Vivosmart HR Fitness Tracker to gather and analyse your physical activity and health data. By wearing the activity tracker and achieving your target wellness score, you’ll be rewarded with up to 10% off your insurance premiums for the life of your policy.

To receive a discount, you need to reach your targeted wellness score within the first 12 months of your policy. All participants have the same score of 900. This score is based on a number of factors, including:

  • Step count
  • How active you are
  • Time asleep
  • Time wearing the smart watch
  • Average resting heart rate

The first time you reach your targeted score within 160 days, you are eligible for a 5% premium discount. If you reach your targeted score twice, you became eligible for a further 5% premium discount, giving you a total discount of 10%.

Achieve Your Targeted Wellness Score

You can easily achieve your wellness score of 900 by:

Walking 6 to 8 kms a day (that’s 10,000 steps) or,
Being physically active for 1 hour a day and,
Sleeping a solid 7 to 9 hours a night and,
Recording a resting heartbeat of less than 85 beats per min and,

    I already have a fitness tracking device and I don’t want to wear two devices, can I use my personal device to this program?

      Great question Mark and can understand your thinking. However, for MLC On-Track you must wear the Garmin Vivosmart HR fitness tracker and have a compatible smartphone to pair with this device.

    You have sent me the Vivosmart and I have paired the device. However there is no link to ontrack.mlc.com.au/login when entered in google says there is no site. When you search on the mlc website it cannot be found.

    How can all this work be done to advertise this wellness program and the site is impossible to find?

    I recently took out life insurance policies for my wife and I. We have not received an email to join the programme. Who can I contact about this? How can I confirm our eligibility?

      Hi Dathome,

      Appologies for the delay in getting back to you. You should have received your email 7 to 10 days after the MLC insurance or MLC insurance Super policy was issued. This email contains the link you to the MLC ontrack enrolment page. If you did not receive the email, either contact MLC directly or you can contact us & we will be happy to help manage your policy and get you set up on MLC ontrack program.

      Please note we understand that entry into the MLC ontrack program may be ceasing (undergoing major changes) on the 31st May 2017, therefore you will need to be quick to gain entry.

      Hi,

      Can my partner wear the device instead of the policy holder?

      Regards

      Hi Uvric

      The device needs to be worn by the life insured. However I wouldn’t know how they would be able to find out if the device was being worn by someone else?
