A new year, a new opportunity to earn health incentives
If you want to maximize your health savings account or health reimbursement account to help pay for eligible health care expenses, take part in these activities during the year. Incentives apply to employees who are enrolled in one of the Asante Health Plan options, as well as their enrolled spouses.
Age-appropriate preventive exams include adult physicals, routine OB/GYN exams, colorectal cancer screenings, cervical cancer screenings, routine mammograms, establish-care visits, preventive dental exams and preventive vision exams.
You or your covered spouse are not required to provide documentation of the exam. Claims for an eligible exam are flagged automatically, and the incentive given four to six weeks after the claim is processed. While a person can have multiple preventive exams in a year, the first one to be flagged will earn the incentive.
For a Regence interactive program, follow these steps:
- Sign in to Regence.
- Scroll to Resources and click Go to Regence Empower.
- Open the menu and click on Self-Guided Programs.
- Choose and enroll in an interactive program.
- Complete the six-week program by logging your healthy habits, tracking your progress, checking out the recommended resources and completing a final assessment.
Interactive programs that qualify for the incentive include Improving Your Blood Pressure, Managing Your Stress, Improving Your Sleep, Enriching Your Emotional Wellbeing, Achieving Your Healthy Weight, Maintaining Your Healthy Weight, Building Resilience, Enhancing Your Physical Activity, Nutrition for Better Health, Quitting Tobacco, Staying Tobacco Free, Improving Your Oral Health, and Financially Fit.
As with the preventive exam, once a program has been completed, it will be flagged automatically for the incentive, which is paid four to six weeks after the program is completed. Although you can complete multiple programs in a year, the first one flagged will earn the incentive.
Personalized Wellness Plan
For the Personalized Wellness Plan, the first step is to schedule an appointment and complete a healthy lifestyle assessment in MyChart. Follow these steps:
- Sign into your MyChart account.
- Click on Visits > Schedule an appointment > Tell us why you’re coming in > Personalized Wellness Plan.
- Answer the prompt about medical emergencies, and then click Select a provider > Choose an available appointment.
- Complete the Healthy Lifestyle Assessment in MyChart before your appointment.
Once your plan has been completed, it will be flagged for the incentive, which will be given four to six weeks after it has been completed. For more details on the Personalized Wellness Plan, see the video below.
As an added incentive, you can take an online health assessment through Regence Empower or through the Regence Empower app. If you complete it or sign into the Regence Empower app this month, you will be entered to win a prize package from Regence.
