Time is running out, but if you start now, you can still earn up to a $500 credit on your 2014 medical premiums. Simply complete these three activities by Dec. 31, 2013:
1. Complete your health screening.
If you had an annual physical with blood work earlier this year, call your provider to get your information to complete the Health Care Provider Form. If you haven’t seen your doctor yet, try to set up an appointment before the end of the year. Use the information from your visit to complete the form. Then fax it to StayWell no later than Dec. 31, 2013.
If you ordered a home test kit by Nov. 17, follow the instructions to complete the kit and send it back before Dec. 31. Otherwise, if you missed the on-site screening, your best bet is to complete the screening with your health care provider.
2. Complete the Health Risk Questionnaire (HRQ).
The HRQ will be available at ra.staywell.com through Dec. 31.
3. Log Your Take Action activity.
If you still need to finish your activity to receive your credit, do so before Dec. 31. If you haven’t started an activity yet, you can earn the incentive in just 15 minutes by talking with a health advisor. Also, during this time of year, you can usually find holiday-themed competitive run/walk events, such as the Turkey Trot, Ugly Sweater 5k or Santa Hustle 5k. Participating in one with friends can be a fun way to complete a Take Action activity.
Visit ra.staywell.com to log your activity or learn more about health advisors.
Note: You must complete the screening and HRQ to earn ANY incentives.
