University of Minnesota Wellness Program News

The new University of Minnesota Wellness Program year runs from October 1, 2014 through August 31, 2015. As part of the University’s commitment to employee wellbeing, the program has increased the amount employees can save on their annual UPlan rates, and enhanced how they can earn and manage points.

What’s New

Increased Savings

Employees can now save $400 or $600 on their annual UPlan rates, depending on their tier of coverage. UPlan members enrolled in Employee-only or Employee and Children coverage who earn at least 400 wellness points will save $400 on their 2016 annual rates. UPlan members enrolled in Employee and Spouse with or without Children coverage who earn at least 600 points will save $600 on their 2016 rates.

A Better Online Experience

StayWell Online has launched a new website to make it easier for employees to access their online profiles through single sign-on with their University ID and password. Covered spouses or dependents, even if they are University employees, will still need to maintain their own created username and password. However, unlike previous years, dependents will not need to renew their password more than once a year.

New Course Offering

The Healthy Foods, Healthy Lives: Cooking for Wellness course will help you develop healthy cooking and eating strategies to take home and use for weeks and years to come. The program uses hands-on demonstrations led by professional chefs to improve your culinary skills and teach you new techniques to adapt your cooking to a healthier lifestyle.

How to Begin earning points

  1. Log in to your StayWell Online profile to complete the wellness assessment.
  2. Set up a biometric health screening either through Boynton Health Service, the Duluth QuickCare Clinic, or through your physician's office.
  3. Check out the wide selection of wellness programs to see which interest you.
