The Deadline for the WVU Medicine Wellness Rewards Program for 2018 Benefits has passed.
If you have questions about whether you successfully completed the steps, please visit the Highmark Wellness Rewards page at www.highmarkbcbswv.com or call Highmark at 1-877-770-6991.
The following steps were to be completed between Oct. 1 and October 31, 2017 to qualify for the Wellness Incentive:
- Complete a Wellness Profile through Highmark. This online questionnaire was to be completed by both employee and their covered spouse.
- Indicate Tobacco Status via the Wellness Profile. The Wellness Profile is where you indicated that you were tobacco free to avoid the tobacco surcharge. If you use tobacco, you could have avoided the tobacco surcharge through enrollment in a tobacco cessation program offered by Highmark BCBSWV.
- See a Physician for a Preventive Exam between Oct. 1, 2016 and December 31, 2017.
- Complete a Wellness Screening. Employees must have received a lipid panel and glucose test to qualify.
**Covered spouses must have also completed the Wellness Profile and Tobacco Status steps to qualify for the Wellness Incentive.
