Incentives

To encourage you to take an active role in your health and wellbeing, Emory provides financial incentives for healthy behavior. You (and your covered spouse or partner) can save money on your medical expenses by taking action and doing things that help you live a healthy lifestyle. Your incentive will be a credit against your deductible (your deductible will be lowered by the incentive amount).

The following incentives are offered for 2017-18:

 INCENTIVE OPPORTUNITIES



arrow Online Health Assessment + Know Your Numbers Biometric Screening

Part 1 - Health Screening – A biometric or health screening is a quick and convenient check that measures your cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, height, weight and body mass index (BMI). You can receive a health screening as part of your annual preventive care exam through an Emory Healthcare Network or In-Network provider; by scheduling an appointment with Emory Healthcare’s Employee Health Services (this option is not open to spouses/partners or retirees); or by visiting a CVS MinuteClinic™ location for a health screening (no appointment necessary). Screenings are free for employees and spouses/SSDPs on the Emory medical plan. Go to www.hr.emory.edu/KnowYourNumbers for more details.

Part 2 - Online Health Assessment – The health assessment is a brief online questionnaire to help you assess your health habits and to provide you with next steps to a healthier you.

 

arrow  2016 Move More Challenge

All Medical House staff members enrolled in an Emory medical plan in 2017-18 who averaged at least 5,000 steps/day (every week of the 2016 Move More Challenge, which took place September 19-November 13, 2016) will automatically receive an incentive towards their Aetna medical plan. For those who earned this incentive, it will be applied to your Aetna account in July 2017.


arrow Colonoscopy

Colorectal cancer affects men and women of all racial and ethnic groups and is most often found in people age 50 years or older. Colorectal cancer screening can find precancerous polyps –abnormal growths in the colon or rectum – so that they can be removed before turning into cancer. If you are aged 50 or older and haven’t been screened, talk with your doctor about a screening. If you think you may be at higher than average risk for colorectal cancer, speak with your doctor about getting screened early.


arrow Online Programs

Personalized online health enhancement programs to complete at your own pace. Programs include: becoming more active, eating healthier, stress management, tobacco cessation, weight management and others. More details will be announced at a later date.
