Take the Wellness Assessment by March 31 to Earn Points in the Wellness Program

The points you earn by participating in Wellness Program activities, including the wellness assessment, can be used in 2016 to reduce the cost of UPlan Medical Program coverage. When you achieve the required number of points by August 31, 2015, your 2016 premiums will be reduced by $400 or $600 based on the tier of medical coverage you have.

You have an opportunity when needed to review coverage levels or an eligibility situation with your reference guides, the 2015 Summary of Benefits for both the UPlan Medical and Dental Programs. Take some time to become familiar with the information in the summaries.
