No, the 500-mile minimum for elite members on all eligible flights and for non-elite members on shuttle flights will be removed when the changes to award miles are implemented in second half of 2016.
I think the answer is different for EQMs and RDMs, thus the two different FAQ answers:
EQMs: 500-mile minimum remains for elite members
RDMs: No minimum for anyone
