Participation Incentive Program
Any participant who is not earning the full premium reduction due to not meeting one or more of the standards can make up the difference by participating in the Participation Incentive Program to earn an incentive twice per year (January and July).
How To Earn A Participation Incentive
Participants can choose between monitoring blood pressure, logging physical activity, or participating in the Healthy Steps Community each quarter. Details for each category are listed under tabs of the same name. In addition to one of these activities, participants should meet with Penny one time per quarter in person, by telelphone or email to insure they are on the list to receive an incentive.
Possible Incentive Amounts
Missed BMI or waist measurement standard at $50 per month, after 6 months participation: $300
Missed Glucose or A1c stabdard at $20 per month, after 6 months participation: $120
Missed Blood Pressure standard at $15 per month, after 6 months participation: $90
Missed Cholesterol standard at $15 per month, after 6 months participation: $90
Participation will earn an incentive for all standards missed. For instance, if a participant missed the BMI and blood pressure standards, his/her incentive would be $390 for 6 months participation.
If you missed one or more of the standards for the Premium Reduction Program, you are welcome to re-measure in the Fall to have your reduction adjusted January 1. Although not required, be sure to participate in the Wellness Program July-December to receive your participation incentive check for the amount you missed. Contact Penny to begin participation.
