Employees Have Until Oct. 8 to Save on Health Insurance in 2022
Have you completed your biometric health screening (or the alternative training*) and health risk assessment yet? If not, you could miss your chance to save on your health insurance in 2022.
If you will be covered by an MCPS-provided medical insurance plan in 2022 through CareFirst or Kaiser Permanente, you can reduce your contributions to your health insurance next year and beyond by participating each year in the Wellness Initiatives program. Complete a biometric health screening OR the Wellness Initiatives: Biometrics Credit Alternative 2021 Benefit Year training* on Professional Development Online (PDO), by Fri., Oct. 8, and MCPS will pay 1 percent more of the total cost of your health insurance (medical, prescription, dental and vision)—reducing your contribution by 1 percent. Likewise, if you complete your medical insurance plan’s online health risk assessment by Fri., Oct. 8, you can save an additional 1 percent on your health insurance.
For complete information—including instructions for completing your biometric health screening and health risk assessment—visit the Wellness Initiatives webpage. There, you will find links to Frequently Asked Questions, instructions for accessing your medical plan’s health risk assessment, and links to medical plan webpages.
