State Health Plan Wellness Initiatives – Know Your Numbers

Annual Enrollment is being held from Oct. 1 – Oct. 31 for the 2014 Benefit Year. The State Health Plan has created wellness initiatives for 2014 that have a direct impact on employee’s premiums.

One of the Wellness Initiatives is a State Health Plan Health Assessment. If an employee enrolls in either the 80/20 or the new plan for 2014, the Consumer Directed Health Plan (CDHP), they will get a premium discount by completing the Health Plan Assessment NO LATER THAN Oct. 31, 2013.

In support of the State Health Plan’s Wellness Initiatives, Employee Benefits & Recreation and Wellness will be hosting several offsite wellness clinics where employees can obtain their health information such as Body Mass Index (BMI) and Cholesterol Levels. These numbers can be used when completing the State Health Plan Health Assessment.
An Employee Benefits representative will also be available with Annual Enrollment Materials and to answer Annual Enrollment questions.
