How does Menzis determine what is healthy behaviour and what is not?
We do not believe that we are authorities in the area of healthy behaviour. We find it important that our customers and scientists, such as Ivan Wolfers, determine what healthy behaviour is. The saving options currently available in SamenGezond have been included based on the preferences of our customers.
I already have a healthy lifestyle. Does that mean I do not qualify for SamenGezond points?
We are happy that you have a healthy lifestyle and you will, naturally, be given points for this. We like to reward healthy behaviour. For example, if you do not smoke, you receive points. If you quit smoking, you also receive points. In addition to a healthy lifestyle, our savings programme stimulates other initiatives for which you can earn points. For example, you receive saving points if you are an organ or blood donor.
How does Menzis check if I have filled in a questionnaire truthfully or not?
We trust that you have filled in questionnaires honestly. We do not check this.
Is it not naive to trust that people fill in questionnaires honestly?
Trusting one another is valuable. But nowadays trust is no longer a matter of course. We would like to contribute to more trust in the Netherlands. With the SamenGezond savings programme, we reward people for healthy behaviour if they themselves indicate that they are living healthily. We are not going to check this. We first trust our customers and only then expect that trust to be returned. And, so far, we have not been disappointed.
How often are new products available in the webshop and how am I informed about this?
