SSHE Group Healthy U Program

Summary

  • The Healthy U program period is July 1st to May 31st of the following year.

  • All Highmark PPO members covered under the State System’s healthcare plan are eligible to participate.
  • The program requirements may change slightly from year to year.  Currently, however, both the employee and his/her covered spouse/domestic partner must complete the Wellness Profile (an on-line health risk assessment, worth 30 points) and must earn a total of 70 Healthy U points each by participating in various wellness programs and activities.
  • Successful completion of the Healthy U participation requirements by the program deadline of May 31st will allow the employee to save significant dollars on their healthcare premiums for the following plan year. 

Details

Highmark has partnered with WebMD to deliver a dynamic website experience accessible at www.highmarkblueshield.com.  

Required activity is completion of the Wellness Profile for which 30 points are earned. To complete the Wellness Profile go to www.highmarkblueshield.com and log in.  Click on “Wellness Profile” and complete the questionnaire.  Upon completion of the Wellness Profile participants will receive a score based on the answers given along with an on-line report which includes recommendations that address your specific needs.  Remember:  only 30 points are earned for completing the Wellness Profile.

To earn the remaining points, you can enter the date of certain preventive exams, indicate that you have participated in lifestyle improvement programs, took part in telephonic health coaching or confirm that you have participated in one of many other programs or activities.

Deadline to earn the 70 points is May 31st of each year with the lower contribution rate going into effect July 1st

Some of the programs and activities take up to 6 months to complete; therefore, it is advised that you review the program or activity in which you will participate to ensure completion prior to the deadline.

You and your spouse/domestic partner (if applicable) must complete a separate registration through which each of you must earn 70 points. 

Participants who have successfully completed the program will immediately receive a “Hooray” message and an e-mail confirmation to the e-mail address entered on the Highmark site.
