HEM - The Health Engagement Model

 

HEM - The Health Engagement Model 

Participating in HEM helps you and all PEBB members. Dollar sign stethescope

The goal of HEM is to engage as many PEBB members as possible in improving their health.

Improved health can help to contain health care costs over time for you, your family, and all PEBB members.

 

Participating in HEM supports your partnership with your provider.

HEM doesn’t replace your health care provider's role in trying to prevent, diagnose, or treat illness.

Taking a health assessment can reveal health risks you didn't know and support discussions and decisions with your provider on ways to reduce your risks.

The outcome can be a healthier, more vital and active life.

 

You determine your participation in HEM.

  • You become a Participant when you complete your health assessment for 2013 by Oct. 31 and sign up for HEM during Open Enrollment Oct. 1-31.

  • You become a Non-Participant when:

You choose not to sign up for HEM during Open Enrollment

You sign up during Open Enrollment but don’t complete your health assessment by Oct. 31

You don’t actively enroll in benefits during Open Enrollment

Participants have a taxable wellness incentive in their monthly pay beginning January 2013.

For employees who don't cover a spouse or domestic partner, the taxable amount is $17.50.

For employees who cover a spouse or domestic partner, the taxable amount is $35.

For dual-eligible, dual-enrolled employees, the employee with the earlier birth date will have the taxable incentive.

 

Non-Participants have a higher deductible in their medical plan beginning January 2013.

A $100-per-person deductible will be added to the standard deductible in the employee's medical plan.
The Employee and Family Tier is configured at three people, so the maximum additional deductible for this coverage tier is $300 (three people times $100 per person). This glossary describes "deductible."

Non-Participants in 2013 will be eligible to sign up for 2014 HEM during Open Enrollment for the 2014 Plan Year.
