All employees are encouraged to participate in the Western Wellness program. In order to be eligible for the wellness incentive, employees complete an annual health risk assessment, biometric screening, and a health coaching session. If you complete the wellness program requirements by the end of 2020, you will receive the wellness incentive during the calendar year 2021. To maintain wellness program participation, you must complete the program requirements every calendar year.
It is time for your 2020 biometric assessment and coaching session with Holtyn Wellness or your Primary Medical Provider. This year, Holtyn is providing both in person and telephonic assessments due to COVID. Schedule by logging to your account at www.holtynwellness.com and selecting “Schedule an Appointment” from the right side of the page. Choose the assessment date, time and location best for your schedule. You may also call Becky Thomsen to schedule at (269) 251-6858. If you select a telephonic session, please have recent blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose results with you to discuss with your coach.
You may also complete the assessment with your medical provider. Print the attached Medical Provider form (also available at www.wmich.edu/wellness) and have it filled out and signed by your provider. Completed forms should be mailed or emailed to the addresses listed on the form and must be received by Thursday, December 17, 2020.
The wellness incentive is a reduction in your health plan contributions each pay period throughout the calendar year. The current wellness incentive is $240 per calendar year. This amount may be pro-rated quarterly depending on when you complete the program requirements.
