Wellness

ShareCare, your wellness program vendor, provides comprehensive well-being and incentive programs for SHBP members.  As you complete your wellness activities, you will earn credits in your Health Incentive Account to help offset your medical expenses.  HDHP members must meet a portion of the deductible before well-being credits may be used.

All employees and covered spouses are eligible to receive a Well-Being Reward of up to 480 Well-Being Incentive Credits (960 family total) for completion of activities between January 1, 2021 and November 30, 2021. 

Enrolled members can choose to redeem Well-Being Incentive Credits for either a $150 Visa gift card or 480 Well-Being Incentive Credits can be applied towards eligible medical or pharmacy expenses. Credits remain in your account until you decide how to use them.

Get Vaccinated.  Get Rewarded.  The State Health Benefit Plan (SHBP) has added a vaccine incentive as part of the Be Well SHBP well-being program for eligible members and covered spouses.  If you have received your vaccines, or if you become fully vaccinated by November 30, 2021, you can earn up to 480 well-being incentive points by completing a few steps. 

  1. Register or log in to the Be Well SHBP program.
  2. Complete the RealAge Test if you have not done so in 2021.
  3. Select You Immunizations.
  4. Click Add New and enter COVID in the search bar.
  5. Select the vaccine you received and enter date (eligible vaccines include one dose of Johnson & Johnson, or two doses of Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna).
  6. Repeat steps 4 – 5, if you have received a 2nd dose.

Once you have completed the above steps, you have earned your well-being incentive points for the year which you’ll see in the Rewards section. You can redeem your points for a $150 Visa Reward Card or 480 well-being incentive credits that can be used towards medical and pharmacy expenses.  

Important Note: You can earn a maximum of 480 well-being incentive points in 2021.  If you have already received all or part of your well-being incentive points, you will only receive well-being incentive points up to the yearly maximum of 480.  The same is true for a covered spouse.

 

Important Documents

You and your spouse may earn 240 in Well-Being Incentive points for completion of the RealAge Test and a biometric screening.  Once you have completed your RealAge Test, you may participate in telephonic coaching or online tracking to earn additional points.  For telephonic coaching, you can earn 60 Incentive points for 1 call in a calendar month (up to 4 calls a year).  You may also record items such as exercise and food servings on the Well-Being Connect portal and earn additional points. 

You and your spouse may earn a combined total of up to 960 in Wellbeing Incentive points. 

High Deductible Health plan members must meet a portion of the deductible before being able to use Well-Being Incentive points. You must meet $1,350 for individual coverage and $2,700 for dependent coverage before wellness credits are available. UnitedHealthcare is matching the first 240 in well-being incentive credits for employees.

Steps to Wellness


Well-Being Incentive Credits are earned for completing activities during the plan year.  Below are the steps to take to start earning!

  1. Well-Being Assessment (Real Age Test): A confidential, online questionnaire about your health 

  2. Biometric Screening: Assesses your health

  3. Take Action with Coaching or Online Pathway: Phone coaching can earn you 60 credits for one call in a calendar month up to 4 times / year.  Online Pathways can earn you up to 120 credits within a 90 day period.  You can complete two events, for a maximum of 240 credits.

Local Biometric Screenings Available


HCBE employees enrolled in the State Health Medical Plan may take advantage of SHBP Biometric Screenings available in Houston County.

 

What is a Biometric Screening?

A biometric screening will help you to understand the state of your health so that you can take the necessary steps to improve it.  During the screening, a medical professional will collect several measurements — such as height and weight — and take a sample of your blood that will be used to determine your glucose levels and triglycerides.  The biometric screening does not test for illicit drugs, HIV/AIDS, or hepatitis, and individual screening results are not shared with your employer. 

 

Preparing for Your Screening

Here is how you can make sure to have a successful screening experience:

  • Although not required, we recommend fasting for at least nine (9) hours prior to your screening; this includes all food and drinks except for water.
  • Failure to properly fast may result in inaccurate blood test results. (If you have a health condition, such as diabetes or pregnancy, or any other medical concerns, consult a doctor before fasting).
  • Drink plenty of water to make it easier to give a sample of your blood.
  • Continue taking medications as prescribed the day of the screening.*
  • Arrive 5 minutes before your scheduled time.
  • Allow about 15 minutes for your screening.

 

*Follow your doctor’s instructions for taking your medications, including taking them with food if necessary.

Redemption Options


Employee and covered spouses can redeem 480 well-being incentive points in one of two ways:

  • A $150 Visa Reward Card that can be used anywhere Visa is accepted (expires one year after redemption)    OR
  • 480 well-being incentive credits towards eligible medical and pharmacy expenses (can be redeemed in increments of 120 points to HIA, HRA or MIA)

 

Members need to go to the ShareCare website to choose the redemption option preferred.  If members select to use the credits towards eligible expenses, the HMO reimbursement is done by check, and HRA credits are used at the point of service.
