Wellness Benefits

All health plans offer a $150 incentive for the completion of a Health Risk Assessment (HRA) and a biometric screening per year. An HRA is a wellness survey that can be completed online or in some cases, in person. A biometric screening is a measurement of physical characteristics such as height, weight, body mass index, blood pressure and cholesterol. You and your spouse/domestic partner are both eligible for the $150 incentive. Wellness incentives are taxable as wages.

In addition, some plans offer other wellness benefits such as discounts on complementary medicine, healthy living rewards and incentives.
