Employees Have Until Oct. 6 to Save on Health Insurance in 2024
Have you completed your biometric health screening and health risk assessment yet? If not, you could miss your chance to save on your health insurance in 2024.
If you are covered by an MCPS-provided medical insurance plan in 2024 through Cigna or Kaiser Permanente, you can reduce your contributions to your health insurance by participating in the Wellness Initiatives program.
Employees who complete a biometric health screening of your blood pressure, blood sugar, body mass index and cholesterol by Friday, Oct. 6, 2023, will pay 1 percent less of the cost of their health insurance in 2024. You do not need to meet any medical standards to earn the incentive.
- Cigna plan members—Complete a physical with your primary care physician by Oct. 6. The visit must be billed as an annual physical (zero copay). Cigna will report this to MCPS, and you will receive credit for completing your biometric health screening for the 2024 benefit year. Cigna plan memberscan also complete their biometric health screening at a Quest Diagnostics Patient Service Center.
- Kaiser Permanente plan members—Must log in to the Kaiser Permanente incentive webpage to confirm participation in the Wellness Initiatives program and determine if you must meet any additional requirements. Read Kaiser’s instructions on completing a biometric health screening.
In addition to a biometric health screening, you can save another 1 percent of the total cost of your health insurance by completing your medical insurance plan’s online health risk assessment, also by Friday, Oct. 6.
