Tick Tock: You Have Until October 7 to Save on Your Health Insurance in 2017
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 2017.
If you are covered by an MCPS-provided medical insurance plan through CareFirst, Cigna or Kaiser Permanente, you can reduce your contributions to your health insurance in 2017 and beyond by participating each year in the Wellness Initiatives program. Complete a biometric health screening by Oct. 7, 2016, 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 Oct. 7, 2016, 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 the spring 2015 issue of For Your Benefit, which includes detailed information about the program. You also will find answers to frequently asked questions, 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.
