Incentive-based program aims to improve ASU employees' health
The Employee Wellness program at Arizona State University is partnering with Benefits Options, the Arizona Department of Administration and the Mayo Clinic to offer benefits eligible ASU employees expanded wellness programming and incentives through the Health Impact Program.
The goal of the Health Impact Program (HIP) is to increase employee engagement in preventative health activities by leveraging a web-based platform to improve their overall health.
The program begins Oct. 1, 2014 and runs through Sept. 30, 2015. All benefits eligible employees can participate in the program. (If your insurance card shows a Benefits Options logo with one of the state sponsored insurance plans, you are eligible.)
Those who choose to participate can earn points by engaging in various eligible activities during the program year. Once participants have earned 500 points, they become eligible to receive an incentive payment of up to $200, which will be made available November 2015.
The program utilizes the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living online portal – a confidential web-based wellness tool providing personalized health assessments, resources and information – to allow participants to log their activities, thereby self-reporting their participation throughout the year. (Verification of activities will be required to receive the incentive payment.)
Points can be earned by engaging in online wellness activities through the portal, by working directly with your doctor’s office, or by participating in on-campus Employee Wellness-sponsored activities.
Eligible activities on campus include walking groups, onsite screenings, flu shots, lunch-and-learns and tobacco cessation. Be sure to check out the most recent issue of Well Devils News – sent twice each semester via email from the Office of Human Resources and the Employee Wellness program – for eligible activities on campus (identified with an asterisk) that count toward point accumulation.
All eligible activities must fall under one of three categories: 1) activity and exercise 2) preventative screenings 3) nutrition and other. Participants must engage in at least one activity from each category to be eligible for the incentive. See the downloadable chart on this page for details, or visit the program's information page on the Employee Wellness website for more information.
To participate in the program, visit the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living online portal at www.bewellstaywell.az.gov and get registered.
ASU employees will need their alternate ID/Campus ID (9-digit number) to register. You can find this number on MyASU by navigating to My Employment > Payroll > View Paycheck. Your alternate ID/Campus ID can be found in the top left-hand corner of your paycheck.
