Exciting News!!

On September 24, 2013 the County Board of Commissioners passed a Resolution for a “Premium Holiday” for your medical only premium for the month of June and ½ the month of July (dental, vision & life will still be deducted).  If you are currently enrolled in the United Healthcare medical PPO or the Consumer Driven Health Plan/Health Saving Account (HSA) you will not have a medical premium deduction for both pay periods in June ( June 6th & 20th) and the first pay period in July (July 3rd).  Your medical premiums will resume again on the July 18, 2014 pay period and continue throughout the remained of the year.


A New Wellness Program is almost here! 

The Healthy Directions Wellness Committee is in the final stages of the implementation process with our new wellness vendor Viverae.  Beginning July 1, 2014, all PPO/HSA health plan covered employees will be eligible to participate in the health management program.  The health management program is run on a point system.  You earn points throughout the year for completing certain health related program activities.  Then, you redeem these points at the end of the year to receive your 2014 incentive.  Since this is a partial year, the required points needed to earn your 2014 incentive will be 150 points.  You will be required to complete a Biometric screening and a Member Health Assessment Survey as two of the mandatory activities.  The completion of each of the mandatory requirements will be worth 50 points each.  You will be required to earn an additional 50 points by the December 1, 2014 in order to be awarded your $75.00 Visa Gift Card incentive.  How easy is that?  You will be earning points while participating in activities to better your overall health and wellness. 

Healthy Directions will be sponsoring the Biometric screening at four different County locations and 10 different days and times during the month of July.  You will also have the opportunity to take the Member Health Assessment during the screening dates, or on your personal computer with a completion date of August 31, 2014.

In the next couple of weeks, you will receive information on how to register for this program, how to track your progress online, and how to schedule your screening date and time.  The Viverae wellness website will be your personal health management site.  You will log in with your own personal credentials.  All programs are confidential and in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA). 

The Healthy Directions Program is a vital part of our overall benefits program.  Whether your goal is to have more energy, to lose weight, to manage stress, or to improve your diet, the Healthy Directions Worksite Wellness Program can help you.

Watch your mail for more details on how you can earn a $75.00 Visa Gift Card just for participating.
