Wellness

Employee health and wellness continues to be a priority for Jim Ellis.  The Jim Ellis Wellness Program is designed to help you improve your health with incentives when you complete simple tasks.  When you comply with the requirements by the due date, you avoid potential surcharges.

 

Important Documents

Surcharges are deducted post-tax on a quarterly basis.  Upon compliance, the surcharges are discontinued at the beginning of the following quarter of compliance. 

2019 Biometric Screenings


A 2019 Biometric Screening is required for employees enrolled in the medical plan.  If you do not carry medical insurance through Jim Ellis, you are not required to participate.  All employees who have medical insurance through Jim Ellis and did not have a biometric screening completed between November 1st and December 31st must complete a screening by March 31st, 2019 in order to avoid the non-compliance surcharge.  If you have your screening completed at your PCP or Quest lab, please return your results to Yvonne Teague, as failure to do so could lead to the non-compliance surcharge.  The surcharges are modified on a quarterly basis with no exceptions.

How to Complete Your Biometric Screening


Completing the screening process is easy.  You need to obtain a Provider Results Form from my.questforhealth.com and take it your screening appointment.  Follow the simple steps below.

Avoiding the Tobacco Surcharge


To avoid the separate $25 per month surcharge, you must complete the non-tobacco affidavit or be an active participant in tobacco cessation by the deadline.

  1. Obtain the non-tobacco affidavit from the Resources page or Human Resources.
  2. Complete and sign the affidavit within 60 days of your benefits effective date (or by the annual due date) to avoid the surcharge.

If you use tobacco products and participate in the UHC smoking cessation program, the tobacco surcharge is waived.  Logon to the Simply Engaged Wellness Program for more information and to enroll.
