How do I know if I have met the wellness qualifications for FY21 and will be eligible for the incentive?

Login to benefit.staywell.com and click on My Progress to check your completion status. Points earned will not populate on your points bar until your online health assessment and on-site health screening have been completed.

Your green progress bar must show 100 points completed for individual coverage or 200 points if you are an employee with a covered spouse, to earn the incentive.

Individual Coverage: When your points bar shows 100, it means you have completed all three qualifications

Employee with a Covered Spouse: If you cover your spouse, each of you need to have an account on the StayWell portal. You will both need to complete all three wellness qualifications to be eligible for the incentive. When your points bar shows 200, you and your spouse have met the three qualifications.
