8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

                                                Deadline to Register: Thursday, April 16 (or until all appointments are filled)

 

In 2015, all state insurance plans are offering $150/member for completing the Well Wisconsin program.  There are two steps to completing the program.

  • 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 provide proof of insurance (health insurance card).  You will then go through a series of staffed stations for the testing, which generally takes less than 20 minutes.  At the end of the screening you will be given your results.

  • 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.  Health plan issued rewards are considered a fringe benefit of employment and must be treated as taxable income by the primary subscriber’s employer.  Your health plan is required to report payment information for the subscriber and enrolled family member’s to the subscriber’s employer.  Individual health information will never be shared with the employer.

 

Even if you are unable to attend the on-site Biometric Screening on April 20th, 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!

University Personnel System (UPS) Overview Forum

UPS

What is the University Personnel System (UPS)?
• The structure used to recruit, appoint, pay, provide benefits to, and manage personnel matters for all UW employees.
What is prompting this change?
• Governor Walker signed executive order 36.115 authorizing and directing development of personnel systems separate from the current structure under the Office of State Employment Relations (OSER) in 2011. The initial order was to be implemented July 1, 2013, but in June 2013 a motion was passed to postpone implementation until July 1, 2015.
Have further questions? Need to be “brought up to speed”? Are you interested in getting involved? Now is the time!
The Office of Human Resources in collaboration with the Academic Staff and University Staff committees will be hosting an informational “catch up” session for UPS. Please click on the attached meeting request to add this forum to your calendar.

When: Thursday, March 5, 2015; 3 – 4 p.m.
