STEPS TO EARN YOUR 2015 $480 ANNUAL HEALTH INSURANCE DISCOUNT

2015 BENEFITS PLAN YEAR

Make your health a top priority! From September 1 - December 1, 2014 Wellness members will be able to complete their annual Health Appraisal with The Preventive Plan and earn their $40 monthly health insurance premium discount for year 2015. To meet your individual health and wellness goals and to help you complete your Health Appraisal, it is important to “Know Your Numbers” - such as blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

Getting your numbers is easy. We’ve scheduled free wellness screenings that you may attend. Free important immunizations will also be offered at these screening sites! You will also receive a prize from Wellness at your scheduled appointment!

If you can’t make one of the scheduled screenings or if you choose to see your primary care provider, no problem. You can take a “Know your Numbers” form with you. The Know Your Numbers form is for your reference only.

WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT

The Preventive Plan Health Appraisal, wellness screenings, lab work and vaccinations are available at no cost to you because the District cares about your health. A healthy workforce increases productivity and lowers medical claims—two important factors in keeping our benefit program affordable for you and your family.  

YOUR CONFIDENTIALITY IS IMPORTANT

The Preventive Plan is a confidential benefit offered to all District employees, retirees and spouses on a District medical plan. Your information WILL NEVER be shared with the District. It is solely between you and the prevention experts at U.S. Preventive Medicine, the private company that provides the Preventive Plan. The Preventive Plan is HIPAA compliant and accredited in wellness by NCQA and in disease management by URAC. Your privacy and confidentiality is the number one priority.
