Employees Have Until October 6 to Save on Health Insurance in 2018
Employees have until Friday, Oct. 6 to complete the screenings and save up to 2 percent on their health insurance.
Have you completed your biometric health screening and health risk assessment? If not, you could miss your chance to save on your health insurance in 2018.
If you will be covered by an MCPS-provided medical insurance plan in 2018 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 see your physician for a physical by October 6, 2017, 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 October 6, you can save another 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 web page. There, you will find links to Frequently Asked Questions (and answers), a schedule of biometric health screenings sponsored by Well Aware, instructions for accessing your medical plan’s health risk assessment, and links to medical plan web pages.
Time is running out! Be sure to get your biometric health screening and take your health risk assessment by Friday, Oct. 6.
