2013 Healthy Living Program
A key part of living the best life you can is to take an active role in your health and well-being. Good health doesn’t just happen on its own. Whether you are generally healthy, trying to change a health habit or coping with a chronic condition, your continued health depends on the choices you make and the actions you take each and every day.
Healthy Actions Pay Off
The Healthy Living Program puts your health first—helping you focus on achieving a few key healthy tasks that can have a positive impact on your health for the long run. In return for choosing to participate and completing these tasks, you receive special pricing under the health plan for your out-of-pocket healthcare costs. Earning this "Enhanced Level' of pricing means you pay less out-of-pocket than you otherwise would.
If you or your covered spouse/same sex domestic partner (SSDP) choose not to complete the healthy living tasks outlined in the guides below, you and all of your dependents will be moved down to the "Standard Level" of pricing which means you will pay more out-of-pocket for your healthcare.
Healthy Living Requirements Vary by 2013 Health Plan
The tasks you and your covered spouse/SSDP must complete vary depending on which health plan you select for the 2013 plan year. Below is a summary chart which outlines the tasks by health plan. Be sure you and your covered spouse/SSDP are completing the correct tasks through the correct Healthy Living Administrator for the health plan you select.
