It’s time to complete the Wellness Two-Step!
July 1 – Sept. 30, 2017
Employees who carry the UA health insurance in their name, and who complete the two steps below by Sept. 30, 2017, will receive a $1,400 reduction in their medical insurance out-of-pocket maximum cost in 2018. If you cover family, double that to $2,800.
New employees who enroll in the medical plan after July 31, 2017 (coverage effective 8/1/2017 or later), will automatically receive the wellness reward and will not be required to complete the wellness steps this year.
STEP 1: “Get your numbers” at a biometric screening
Biometric health screenings will be offered by the UAMS Employee Health Office starting July 31. Additional screenings will be held throughout the state for employees who don’t work on the main campus. The screening includes blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, height, weight and body mass index, and will take 20-30 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 carry 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.
ALTERNATIVE METHOD: As an alternative to getting your numbers at a screening, you may instead schedule a visit with your in-network primary care physician. Print and take this form with you that appointment. You can also download the form from Onlife’s website. Your physician’s office will fill out the form. It’s best to have them return the form to you and you send it to Onlife (see form for instructions). If the only reason for this office visit is to secure this form and the office visit is coded as a physical/wellness visit, there is no cost to you. The blood work must be between the dates of May 1 and Sept. 30, 2017 to be accepted, and Onlife must receive the form by Sept 30 as well.
STEP 2: Complete a health assessment at www.OnlifeHealth.com.
You can do this on a computer or your smart device that has an internet browser. Or do it right from your phone by downloading the free mobile app AlwaysOn®.
