April 11, 2016
There will be a Well Wisconsin event for the School of Education employees on Wednesday, May 11, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. in room 159 of the Education Building.

If you carry your health insurance through UW-Madison, you are eligible to participate in the Well Wisconsin program and can qualify for a $150 incentive from your health insurer. Plus, it’s a great way to learn more about your current health status and potential risks in your future.

To qualify for the incentive, you must complete the two steps as outlined below. Subscribers, and if applicable their spouses/domestic partners, are both eligible to participate and receive the $150.

1. Complete a wellness assessment onsite or with your physician. To get the most accurate results, it is recommended to fast for 8 – 12 hours prior to your appointment.

  • Register for a free appointment at the School of Education, room 159 on May 11th between 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at https://register.wellness-inc.com/stateofwi. The appointment will take less than 30 minutes. Please bring your health insurance member ID with you to your appointment. You will receive your current cholesterol level (total, HDL, LDL, triglycerides), blood pressure, blood glucose, height, weight, Body Mass Index (BMI), and waist measurement.
  • If you want to complete the assessment with your physician, click on your insurer’s link at http://wellwisconsin.wi.gov to learn the correct process. Please note, there may be fees associated with having labs drawn with your physician.
  • You can also find additional dates/locations on the Well Wisconsin website.
2. Complete your health insurer’s health survey by clicking on your insurer’s link at http://wellwisconsin.wi.gov.

  • All health and wellness incentives paid to ETF members by the health plan are considered taxable income to the subscriber and are required to be reported by your employer. Health information, including individual results of your wellness assessment and health survey are protected by federal law and will never be shared with your employer.
