Wellness Plan and Resources

2021 is a “re-set” year for the Wellness Program Rewards of $0 PCP copays. This means that effective January 1, 2021, you will complete the online health survey and select/confirm your PCP through your medical plan’s microsite to once again earn this reward for 2021. This reward will continue until December 31, 2022.

Similarly, 2021 is also a re-set year for the Reduced Specialist copay. By having one or more of the screenings listed on this document per your PCP’s advice, you will earn the Reduced Specialist copay reward, which will continue until December 31, 2022. The sooner you complete these activities in 2021, the sooner you start saving money!
