In order to successfully complete the Healthy U program, both you and your covered spouse/ same-sex domestic partner (if applicable) must complete the WELLNESS PROFILE (worth 30 points) and earn a total of 70 points each by the program deadline.  Each participant can choose from the many available activities and programs to earn the remaining points.
 
Healthy U is available to covered managers, faculty, non-faculty coaches, police and security personnel, and nurses and their spouse/ same-sex domestic partner who are enrolled in the State System of Higher Education Group Health Program’s PPO health plan.
 
Participation in Healthy U will entitle the employee to pay the lowest health plan contribution rates.  This is an obviously considerable financial incentive for employees and spouse/ same-sex domestic partner to participate in Healthy U.  However, we believe that employees will also be interested in participation in order to become more involved in improving their own health or maintaining their current good health into the future.
 
Participation in Healthy U by both the employee and covered spouse or same-sex domestic partner will entitle the employee to pay the lowest health plan contribution rates.  If either the employee or the spouse or same-sex domestic partner does not meet the participation requirements, the employee will not be eligible for the lowest health plan contribution rates.
 
Am I required to enroll in programs that are recommended in my Wellness Profile results?
No, however the programs and activities that are recommended based on your Wellness Profile results are likely to be the most beneficial to you.  You are not required to enroll in the recommended programs and may select from any of the offered programs.
 
Your plan includes a full routine preventive schedule of benefits for adults. This schedule includes coverage for the routine physical exam itself, as well as various other tests and screenings that may be included with the exam.  Please contact Highmark Member Services at1-888-745-3212 to confirm your coverage for preventive services.
 
There are three boxes on the Rewards "lobby" page that display points:
 
EARNED:  The first value represents your Total Accumulated Points.  The Max value reflects the total number of points needed to complete your Rewards Program
USED: Total Points Redeemed/Used
BALANCE:  Current Point Value Accumulated, to apply to the next reward level
 
As you accumulate points, the Balance box reflects the points you have earned. Once you have enough points to earn a reward, you will receive a congratulations message. At this time, the Balance box returns to zero and those points move to the Earned and Used boxes. You are encouraged to keep using the online tools beyond your program requirements to improve your health and wellness, but points will not continue to accumulate.
