The deadline to complete the wellness “2 step” in order to receive the 2017 reward was 9-30-2016.
Look for an announcement in summer 2017 regarding the next opportunity. Scroll to the bottom for general information about Onlife Health. Visit the GetHealthyUAMS intranet site for wellness opportunities right here at UAMS!
Following were the steps to take between July and September 2016 in order to receive the 2017 wellness reward:
Employees who are enrolled in medical who complete these two steps by 9-30-2016 will receive a $1400 reduction in their medical insurance out-of-pocket maximum cost in 2017. If you cover family, double that to $2800. New employees who enroll in the medical plan after 8-1-2016 will automatically receive the wellness reward their first year, but will need to participate next summer in order to receive the reward going forward.
STEP 1: “Get your numbers” at a biometric screening
Biometric health screenings will be offered by the UAMS Employee Health Office between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30, 2016. Additional screenings will be held throughout the state to aid our employees who don’t work on the main campus. Each week’s screenings will also be posted on the digital signs. The screening, which includes a finger prick and a mouth swab, will take about 30 minutes. But allow more time in case there is a line as screenings are done on a first come, first served basis.
The screenings only apply to employees who are enrolled in the UA health plan as the primary member/policy holder. Spouses and children, even if they work for the University, are not eligible for the screening.
As an alternative to getting your numbers at a screening, you may instead schedule a physical or wellness office visit with your in-network primary care physician. Take this FORM with you to that appointment. Your physician will provide the numbers on this form, then you will send in. If the only reason for this office visit is to secure this form and the office visit is coded as a physical/wellness visit, you will not have to pay an office visit copay. The blood work must be between the dates of May 1 and Sept. 30, 2016 to be accepted.
STEP 2: Complete a health assessment and take 2 health pledges at www.OnlifeHealth.com.
You must have a computer or other device with an internet browser to complete this step.
