Earn Points to Reduce UPlan Medical Plan Rates

The points earned through August 31, 2015, by participating in the Wellness Program can reduce your UPlan medical rates for 2016. When you achieve the required number of points, the yearly UPlan rate you pay in 2016 will be reduced by $400 or $600 based upon the tier of medical coverage.

UPlan members claiming employee-only or employee plus child/children must earn at least 400 wellness points to qualify for $400 reduction in their medical rates for 2016. UPlan members claiming employee plus spouse or employee plus spouse and child/children must earn at least 600 wellness points to qualify for a $600 reduction in their medical rates in 2016. If you spouse is covered by the UPlan, he or she can contribute up to 200 of the 600 point total, although he or she is not required to do so.

Note that there are separate listings for UPlan Medical Program rates: (1) for members who achieved the required number of points for a rate reduction; and (2) for members who did not participate in Wellness Points Bank.

How to Earn Wellness Points

Review the Wellness Points chart. Decide on the activities you (and your spouse, if covered by the UPlan) want to participate in to earn the points required for the UPlan rate reduction. Note the wellness point values associated with each of the offerings. This is the maximum number of points that can be earned for completing the activity or individual program even though you may want to complete the activity more than one time during 2014-2015.
