  • New employees hired after October 1, will not be eligible to participate in HEM until the following Open Enrollment (2021).
    • New employees that are not eligible for HEM will not be placed in the higher deductible plan, but will not receive the $17.50 HEM Incentive.

Questions?

Answer:

​Health actions are two actions you, as a HEM participant, choose and do for better health. You agree to doing two health actions when you signed up for the HEM Incentive Program and that you will complete them by the next Open Enrollment. (October 1-31)

Answer:

You choose your own health actions. Pick two that meet your personal health goals.

Answer:

No. You don't have to track your health actions.

Answer:

No. You don't have to report your health actions - to PEBB or anyone else. When you enroll during the next Open Enrollment, you will be asked if you completed two health actions as part of HEM participation; you answer yes or no.

Answer:

As a life style choice? Absolutely! As a requirement of the PEBB Health Engagement Model? No. HEM is only for employees.​

Answer:

No, PEBB may need a copy of your Certificate of Completion, but PEBB does not see, ask for, or store any information you enter into your Health Assessment.​

Answer:

Remember, HEM program has no required health actions. The following are only examples of health actions. Members may choose based on their own health needs!

By participating in HEM, you are agreeing:
  • That you will complete the Health Assessment through your current health carrier's website, and then enroll in HEM during Open Enrollment (October 1-October 31)
That you understand: 
  • By enrolling in HEM and completing the Health Assessment by the close of Open Enrollment, you will receive a taxable health incentive of $17.50 added to your monthly paycheck (Beginning January 1).
    • If you do not complete the Health Assessment, two healthy actions or enrollment in HEM participation by the end of Open Enrollment (October 31), you will not receive the health incentive, and $100 will be added to your medical coverage deductible, per covered individual (up to a family maximum of $300). 
  • That you must complete two healthy actions, of your choice, by the time you enroll in the following plan year's Open Enrollment. 
  • That the above are standards, and that a reasonable alternative to a standard will be provided if a disability makes it unreasonably difficult for me to achieve a standard, or a medical condition makes it inadvisable for me to attempt to achieve a standard. If this is the case, please contact PEBB or your carrier.
