In 2016, all state health insurance plans are offering $150/employee and spouses/domestic partners 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 18th, 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).
