The New Wellness Incentive Program at Columbus State has started!
Columbus State is again partnering with The
Ohio State University Managed Health Care Systems, Inc. to offer the
Wellness Incentive program to all full-time employees.
In the program, employees who complete: 1)a Biometric Screening, 2) a
Personal Health Assessment and 3) a session of Health Coaching, are
qualified to receive a $150 incentive from Columbus State in August 2010.
By taking part in various wellness activities offered throughout the year,
employees can accumulate additional wellness points to earn up to an
additional $150. These wellness activities might include attending Lunch and
Learn workshops, getting a flu shot, participating in the Wellness
Challenge, and many additional opportunities. You will be able to log these
additional activities on your Columbus State WebMD page.
A calendar of all
Wellness Incentive activities and point values is currently under
construction! Watch the employee newsletter
Update for listings of these activities as they are scheduled.
(Some activities that have taken place already, such as October flu shots and
Lunch and Learn Workshops, will be counted toward points for the Wellness
Incentive 2010 Program.)
Through the Ohio State Managed Health Care Systems, Columbus State has a
portal to WebMD, a medical and healthy living Web site that offers a wealth
of information concerning your health. When you access the WebMD
site, you will be prompted to register with a login and password. Also included on Columbus
site will be a location for you to sign up for your Personal Health
Assessment, Biometric Screening, and Health Coaching sessions. After you
register, you will be able to sign up for your first step: the biometric
screening. Biometric screening is a finger-prick blood test and other
measurements which take about 20 minutes to complete and will be performed
on campus. The first screening is scheduled for November 19, 2009.
