February eNewsletter: New (and easy) way to earn Wellness Credits

New (and easy) way to earn Wellness Credits

We’ve changed up the Wellness Credit Screening for 2020 and how you can earn your 2021 Wellness Credits. Check out the changes (and did we mention really easy?) way to earn Wellness Credits below.


How to earn Wellness Credits

You can earn up to $520 ($20 per paycheck) in wellness credits in 2021:

Action in 2020
What you get in 2021
Get your Wellness Credit Screening by September 30, 2020

Earn $130 ($5 per paycheck in 2021)

Meet 2 of the 4 numbers

Earn an additional $130 (for a total of $10 per paycheck in 2021)

Meet 3 or 4 of the 4 numbers

Earn another $260 (for a total of $20 per paycheck in 2021)

This means if you’ll just go get your screening by September 30, 2020, you’ll earn an extra $5 per paycheck next year! That’s a pretty sweet deal just for going to get your screening and finding out some basic information about your health.

Check out the two ways to get your Wellness Credit Screening before September 30 here.


Numbers to meet at your Wellness Credit Screening

Didn’t meet the numbers?

Even if you don’t meet the numbers, you can still earn the full $520 by participating in a reasonable alternative. You have two options to do a reasonable alternative after you get your Wellness Credit Screening:

  1. Virgin Pulse Journeys: Go to your Virgin Pulse account and complete the Journey for each of the numbers that you missed. Plan ahead, though! Journeys could take a few weeks to complete. We recommend that you get screened early so you have plenty of time to complete your Journeys, if needed. Journeys must be completed by Sept. 30, 2020.
  2. Physician Recommendation: if your physician wants you to participate in an alternative activity different from the Journeys, a Reasonable Alternative Action Form must be signed by the physician and submitted with your agreement to complete the alternative activity. Ask your physician to fax the completed form to the number provided on the form. The form must be completed by your physician and submitted by Sept. 30, 2020.
