2015-2016 ‘Pick Your Path’ Wellness Program

Human Resources

Over the past few years, you’ve learned your numbers, collected points, earned your discount, and improved your health. This year, we’re taking you down a new path to wellness. You’ll still need to visit your doctor for biometric measures, and take the same familiar health assessment, but the PICK YOUR PATH program is customized to your lifestyle and health needs.

This year, you have an opportunity to earn up to $900 savings on your annual medical rate contributions.

Active employees can earn a $600 annual medical rate discount for completing the health assessment and one wellness option and covered spouses of active employees can earn a $300 annual discount (off the employee’s medical plan rate) for completing the health assessment.

Below are the steps to earning your discount:

Step 1 (Active Employees and covered Spouses):

Log on to MyCigna.com and complete your annual health assessment by October 31, 2015. Note that both employees and spouses must create their own MyCigna.com login in order to complete the health assessment.

To complete your health assessment, you need up-to-date measures for your:

  • Blood Pressure
  • Total and HDL cholesterol
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Waist circumference

Obtain your biometric measures from your annual exam or employees may participate in one of the limited biometric screening events across the city. Your biometric measures must be from January 1, 2015 or later.

Step 2 (Active Employees only):

Instead of collecting points, complete one of four wellness options between November 2, 2015 and March 12, 2016.*

  • Option A: Preventive Care Activities
  • Option B: Telephonic Coaching
  • Option C: Onsite Health Program
  • Option D: My Health Assistant Online Programs

*Option A: Preventive Care Activities must be completed between January 1, 2015 and January 31, 2016.
