The University invites all regular full-time and part-time faculty and staff (including active members of SEIU), spouses/partners enrolled in a University Health Care Plan, as well as non-Medicare-eligible retirees and spouses/partners enrolled in a University Health Care Plan, to stay healthy and fit with the help of a free offering-the Personal Health Assessment. The PHA is an online tool that helps you gauge your current level of health and wellness through a series of questions about your lifestyle. Your answers help to identify potential risks for health conditions and the areas where you can make healthy improvements. Upon completion, you will receive a comprehensive, personalized, and confidential PHA Report that offers suggestions on how to achieve a healthier lifestyle. You can share the results of your PHA with your physician and communicate about your personal health goals. You also will have access to Lifestyle Management Programs and resources recommended just for you.
To help encourage you to make an important investment in your health, the University offers a $100 incentive if you complete the PHA. You and your spouse/partner (if enrolled in a University Health Care Plan) may receive this incentive. In order to be eligible, you must make sure you enter your biometric numbers in the appropriate section of the PHA. As an added incentive, employees that complete the PHA by March 31, 2013 will receive an additional $25. The monetary incentive is considered taxable and will be subject to normal wage withholding.
The PHA is administered by School of Nursing Center for Employee Health, an independent third-party administrator. The personal health information you supply is completely confidential, protected by federal law, and cannot be divulged to anyone without your permission. The University will only be provided with aggregate data for the University population as a whole, for the sole purpose of performing program analysis. Please feel free to email Well-U with any questions.
