 Healthy U Update 

 

SPOTLIGHT

May 6, -- Healthy U Information Update

 

It's Not Too Late to Qualify for the Lowest Health Care Contributions for the Plan Year Beginning July 1, 2009

 

 

The May 15, 2009 deadline for Phase 2 of Healthy U is fast approaching.  

 

How do I qualify for the lowest health plan contributions for Phase 2?  The requirements are different for members who completed Phase 1 steps than for members who did not.  If you are not sure if you have completed the Phase 1 requirements, contact your campus human resources office for confirmation.

 

If you COMPLETED the steps for Phase 1, you and your covered spouse/same-sex domestic partner must complete the following step before May 15, 2009:

        Schedule a Preventive Exam:  To receive credit for scheduling your exams, go to the "Lifestyle Returns" section of the Highmark website and enter the date of your preventive exam.  Covered spouses/same-sex domestic partners also must schedule and enter a Preventive Exam.

 

If you DID NOT COMPLETE the steps for Phase 1, you and your covered spouse/same-sex domestic partner must complete the following steps before May 15, 2009:

        Register on the Highmark Website:  www.highmarkblueshield.com.  You will need your Highmark Member ID card number.  A PIN number is not required for accessing the portions of the Highmark website necessary for Healthy U participation.

        Take the Pledge:  On the Highmark website, log in with your user ID and password, select the "Your Health" tab, click on "Lifestyle Returns" and accept the Pledge.  This step must be completed before the Wellness Profile and the Preventive Exam steps can be completed.  Covered spouse/same-sex domestic partners may be prompted to also complete a Pledge, if they have not previously completed Healthy U participation requirements.

        Complete the Health Risk Assessment (Highmark's Wellness Profile):  Enter or remain in "Lifestyle Returns" and complete a confidential Wellness Profile.  Covered spouses/same-sex domestic partners must ALSO complete the Wellness Profile.

        Schedule a Preventive Exam:  To receive credit for scheduling your exams, go to the "Lifestyle Returns" section of the Highmark website and enter the date of your preventive exam.  Covered spouses/same-sex domestic partners also must schedule and enter a Preventive Exam.
