New wellness portal launching in July

Samaritan Choice Plans is transitioning to a new My Wellness portal that will be available beginning Jul. 1, 2019. The new portal has an improved look and feel, plus new features. Points for your preventive routine physical exam and preventive screening visit will be automatically uploaded in the new portal within 90 days after your exam or visit or after Jul. 1, 2019, whichever is later. You will be able to self-report your preventive dental visit and flu shot, start tracking your 2019 points online, and take online Self Help Works courses beginning Jul. 1, 2019 in the new My Wellness portal. That should not stop you from starting to earn your 2019 points now. Take charge of your preventive health and earn points for your $150 Healthy Habits Incentive! 

Stay tuned for additional details about the new My Wellness portal!

2019 Healthy Habits Incentive

For 2019, Samaritan employees who are Choice Wellness Plan subscribers (the employee who has the health plan premium withheld from their paycheck) can receive $150 by earning a total of 20 points for completing a variety of health-related activities. Options include a routine physical exam, preventive screening, dental exam, flu shot and online courses. The point value awarded per health-related activity is the same as it was in 2018. There are some minor changes to the 2019 Healthy Habits Incentive that you should be aware of. No point related health challenges will be available. Online courses will be available in the new My Wellness portal beginning Jul. 1, 2019 and points will be awarded for up to three courses. Subscribers who earn 20 points during 2019 will qualify for the Healthy Habits Incentive, which will be taxable and paid out within the first two quarters of 2020.
