What do I receive for participating in the Wellness Incentive?

Active, primary subscribers to the University of Missouri System medical plans can earn $450* on their paycheck by completing two tiers. Tier 1 is worth $50*, which you can earn by simply completing and submitting the Health Risk Assessment on the Cerner Wellness Portal and reading the Cerner User Guide in the Cerner Wellness Portal by April 30.  Tier 1 will be paid out in May. Tier 2 is worth $400*, which you can earn by completing and submitting at least 400 points from Activities that will earn you points for Tier 2. The $400* will be paid out in October.

Incentive earnings are taxed and voluntary retirement earnings are deducted, just like any other university earnings. The amount of taxes deducted will differ depending on the individual.
