Save money in 2017 by participating in the Wellness Program!
Participation is voluntary. There is no penalty for non-participation, but there are rewards!
New for 2017: Enjoy waived PCP copays AND reduced specialist copays by selecting a PCP (if not done previously), completing the online health assessment, and having your recommended screenings done.
The 2017 Wellness Program begins 1/1/17. The sooner in 2017 that you complete your activities, the sooner you start saving!
4 Easy Steps to Get Started in the 2017 Wellness Program, beginning 1/1/17:
- Visit your medical carrier’s website to create an account (if you have already created an account, you do not need to set up a new account to complete the activities).
- Select your PCP (if not already done).
- Complete the online health risk assessment (HRA) which is available on 1/1/17. You have a choice between completing your medical plan’s health risk assessment or the State’s health risk assessment, which is available at http://dbm.maryland.gov/benefits/Documents/State%20of%20Maryland%202016%20Health%20Risk%20Assessment.pdf. (If you complete the State’s HRA, you will indicate this on your medical plan’s wellness tab.) Once done with steps 2 and 3, your PCP copay waiver begins within 1 week!
- Take the list of health screenings, available at http://dbm.maryland.gov/benefits/Documents/CY17_Wellness_%20Plan_Activities.pdfwith you to your annual physical exam, and if your doctor recommends any of the screenings, complete the screening(s). Within 30 days of completing the screening(s), your Specialist copays are reduced to $25.00!
