April 15th has passed, now what?

  • Faculty and staff who completed their biometric screen and online health assessment prior to April 15th will receive rewards ($100 for completing both components) in their paycheck in May. Rewards for spouse participation will also be deposited into paychecks. 
  • Faculty and staff who qualify for health coaching will receive a letter and outreach call this May inviting them to participate in health coaching to earn additional rewards.
  • No further action is required by faculty and staff who are not contacted by a Priority Health Health coach in May. Payout  for this component ($200 for fac/staff, $100 for spouses) will take place in the first quarter of 2017.
