The health screening is the only wellness qualification required to earn the incentive this year. If you and your covered spouse (if applicable) complete the health screening qualification by April 1, 2021, you will earn the incentive. Your incentive will be based on the health plan you select during annual enrollment in May:

  • Low Deductible Health Plan - receive reimbursement of up to $500 in a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) to offset costs during the plan year. The completion of the wellness qualification is no longer required in order to select a low deductible health plan.
  • High Deductible Health Plan - receive the State contribution of $500 into a Health Savings Account (HSA), if eligible based on IRS rules. Employees who do not qualify for the HSA can choose one of the Low Deductible Health Plans and receive the HRA or choose a High Deductible Health Plan and decline the HSA.

The health screening qualification can be completed in one of two ways: 1.) Participate in one of the events offered, or 2.) schedule an annual wellness preventive exam with your primary health care provider, complete the health care provider form with your physician, follow the instructions on the form and submit to Total Wellness.
