8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Where: University Union, Phoenix Room A

Deadline to Register: Monday, April 28, 2014 (or until all appointments are filled)
In 2014, all state insurance plans are offering $150/member for completing the Well Wisconsin program.  There are two steps to completing the program.

  1. Participate in a biometric screening  Get up-to-date testing results on your height, weight, and Body Mass Index (BMI), cholesterol level, glucose measurement, and blood pressure.  At the on-site screening you will be asked to verify your identity (driver’s license, etc.) and proof of insurance.  You will then go through a series of staffed stations for the testing, which generally takes less than 20 minutes.
  2. Complete your Health Risk Survey online provided by your health plan  Use your biometric screening results to complete the survey.  Visit http://wellwisconsin.wi.gov and click on your insurance plan in the column to the left for a direct link to the online Health Survey.  This quick, easy survey will ask a range of questions including your daily stress level, family medical history, and typical meal plan.  The Health Survey is designed to help you gauge intangible well-being factors to pinpoint possible health risks.

 

Once the biometric screening and health survey are completed, the $150 incentive will be processed and issued by your health insurance provider.  Even if you are unable to attend the on-site Biometric Screening on April 30th, you can complete the biometric screening portion with your physician (the necessary paper forms for physician’s completion are available under each individual health plan on the Well Wisconsin website).

Please direct any questions to Kimberly Danielson, Benefits Specialist, at (920) 465-2196 or danielsk@uwgb.edu.

We can always work to improve the quality of our lives through health and wellness!
