The Health Risk Questionnaire (HRQ) is essential to understanding your overall health and how your decisions now can affect you in the future. As a result, it’s required this year. Be aware that:
- If you DON’T complete the HRQ during Annual Enrollment, you’ll pay an additional $100 on your 2015 medical premiums, and you won’t earn any incentives under the Health Management program.
- If you DO complete the HRQ, you’ll avoid the $100 penalty. And you’ll be eligible to earn incentives under the Health Management program—up to $450 off your 2015 medical premiums.
How to Avoid the Penalty
The HRQ will be available on EmployeeConnect from Oct. 25 through Nov. 16. It takes less than 10 minutes to compete, and you can take it as part of the Annual Enrollment process. When you go online to make your benefit changes, simply take the HRQ while you’re there.
Your HRQ Is Private
The HRQ is 100% confidential. Your results are covered by HIPAA, the same law that keeps your health information private at your doctor’s office. Rockwell Automation only receives a report on our collective health risks. We use this data to design programs and select resources that will support the needs of our employees and reduce our overall health risks.
