Healthy Choices Wellness Program

2015 Program Overview


What are faculty and staff saying about this program? 

"I have been working with a health coach on making a lot of small lifestyle changes that have been adding up". 

"I cut down on the amount of processed meats and increased the amount of vegetables I consume".

"I quit smoking, in part, because of encouragement to do so at the screening".

  1. For the Active Management component, this July, Priority Health will call faculty, staff and eligible spouses and household member program participants who presented opportunities for health improvement on their health assessment and biometric screen to engage with a health coach. Faculty,staff, spouses and household member program participants who engage with a coach and already completed the Know Your Numbers components (Health Assessment and biometric screen) are eligible for an additional $100 into their Health Savings Account or paycheck.

    If a coach does not call this July, no action is required. Faculty, staff and eligible spouses and members of the household member program who presented little or no health risks from the health assessment and biometric screen will receive $100 for actively managing health risks without coaching. However if you would like to connect with a coach, please call the 1-800 number on the back of your insurance card. Click to view videoCompletion for Active Management will show on your Priority Health Rewards page after the following dates: 7/13, 8/31, 9/28, 10/26, 11/23, 12/14, 12/30.
