Healthy for Life: T.E. Atkins UM Wellness Program
2014 Wellness Incentive
Understand your health risks and earn $100 in your final May paycheck!
You spoke, we listened. Employees said they wanted the Wellness Incentive in their paycheck, so in 2014, active primary subscribers to UM medical plans can earn $100 by completing two simple steps: an online personal health assessment and health screening. Eligible employees who complete both requirements by April 30, 2014 will earn $100 in their final May paycheck and will be entered in a drawing for: 1 of 3 iPad Minis, a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, or 1 of 2 FitBit Flexes.*
To make the process easier, we've implemented a new, easier to use Cerner Health account that allows you to track your weight, exercise and food goals, participate in wellness workshops and connect with a dietician or trainer with the click of your mouse. Your information will be kept confidential; strict policies are followed to protect personal information.
Step 1: Complete your Personal Health Assessment (PHA)
Start by creating your Cerner Health Account, or log into your existing account by visiting https://www.healthyforlife.umsystem.edu. You'll be able to complete your PHA - a brief online questionnaire that helps you understand your health risks. You'll be provided with resources to help improve your wellbeing.
Step 2: Complete your Health Screening
Choose ONE of these three ways to complete your health screening. Employees need only complete one health screening per year. Screening results must be submitted by April 30, 2014.
- Visit your doctor. You can use your results from your annual physical to complete your screening requirement. The form you'll need is located here. You may use results obtained from your doctor from May 1, 2013 through April 30, 2014.
- Schedule your FREE health screening on campus.You can schedule your health screening at a convenient time and location on your campus via your Cerner Health Account. For best results, it is encouraged to fast (nothing to eat or drink for 9 hours prior to your health screening), and drink plenty of water to facilitate a successful visit. Visit www.wellness.umsystem.edu/2014screenings to view the 2014 screening schedule.
- Complete your Home Access kit by April 30. The deadline has passed for ordering a Home Access kit. But for individuals who have already ordered one, be sure to complete and return the kit by April 30.
