Viewing Points Will Be Temporarily Unavailable

For 2021, 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 (like the COVID-19 vaccination series), dental exam, flu shot, online Self Help Works courses and financial wellness events.

Tracking Your Points 

There’s still time to enter your Healthy Habits Incentive points but viewing your points will be temporarily unavailable beginning Thursday, July 22 through Thursday, Sept. 30.

Samaritan Choice Wellness Plan is transitioning the Healthy Habits Incentives Program to a new vendor, Asset Health, to provide comprehensive wellness offerings and streamline the process for employees and their spouses to participate in various programs. Samaritan Choice Wellness Plan subscribers will still accumulate points; however, you will not be able to see the points you’ve earned until Friday, Oct. 1.

Also, during this transition period, you will not be able to complete or participate in a Self Help Works course. Beginning Friday, Oct. 1, you will be able to take I-Knowledge courses which take only 10 to 15 minutes to complete. You can also earn points by self-reporting your dental visits and flu shot until Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022.

For questions, please contact Customer Service at 541-768-4550, toll free 800-832-4580 (TTY 800-735-2900).
