2012 Wellness Incentive Results

Healthy Activities = Healthy Rewards

As part of our initiatives to manage costs and improve employee health, we introduced the Personal Health Rewards (PHR) Program at the beginning of 2012. The program tracks your health activities and rewards you for taking steps to help maintain good health or to achieve greater health.

Employees and covered spouses/domestic partners who completed specific healthy activities identified on personalized scorecards (preventive screenings, telephonic wellness coaching, etc.) and earned a minimum of 150 points by September 30, 2012 will see a credit toward their 2013 medical premiums in their paychecks.

Although there is considerable value with the PHR program, we’re looking to do more in 2013. We plan to make our program more robust and offer even better tools and resources. We will continue to provide incentives for reaching certain goals and outcomes and engage our employees in improving and managing their health. Watch for more information in the coming months.

The table below provides aggregate results as of October 15, 2012 for services completed by September 30, 2012 for participating United Healthcare (UHC) employees and their enrolled spouse or domestic partner.
