The goal of the HEM program is to engage as many people as possible in improving their health, which can help to contain health care costs over time.
To participate in the 2013 HEM:
- Complete your health plan's confidential online health assessment between now and Oct. 31 (even if you completed a health assessment for the 2012 HEM)
- Sign up for HEM during Open Enrollment Oct. 1-31.
- Take and track two health actions before the next Open Enrollment.
If you cover a spouse or domestic partner in your benefits, both members of you must participate -- not one or the other.
HEM Participants enrolled for employee-only or employee and children coverage receive a $17.50 taxable health incentive in their monthly pay.
HEM Participants enrolled for spouse or domestic partner coverage or family coverage receive a $35 taxable health incentive in their monthly pay.
HEM Non-Participants have a $100-per-person additional deductible added to the standard deductible in their choice of medical plan. The additional per-person deductible applies to a maximum of three members in a family, no matter the number of covered dependents. The additional deductible applies to the plan's in-network and out-of-network deductible amount.
