2023 Wellness Requirements

Jan 12, 2023

Health News
With the start of 2023, we wanted to remind everyone that the wellness requirements for the upcoming open enrollment have restarted again. You and your spouse, if on our insurance, will have until the end of August to complete the biometrics and health survey on Virgin Pulse, if you would like the cheaper premium. All employees on our insurance and that were hired before 12/31/2022 will have to complete these requirements to receive the cheaper premium. Although the wellness plan is not required, there are some great benefits to participating. If you complete the biometrics and health survey, you will qualify for the cheaper insurance premium in August. There are also chances to earn HSA dollars by actively participating in our wellness app, Virgin Pulse. Employees can earn $100 per quarter up to $500 for the year, and spouses can earn $50 per quarter up to $250 for the year. If you earned H.S.A money from the app in 2022, you should see those dollars in your account in the next couple of weeks.

Our biometric screenings are the first requirement for the wellness plan. These screenings test your cholesterol, HSL, LDL, Triglycerides, Glucose, Blood Pressure, Height, Weight, Waist Circumference, and BMI. To get an accurate reading, please fast for 9 hours before your screening. If you haven’t signed up already, screening times and locations are as follows:
