2014 Wellness Program
2014 HRA Incentives
The State Health Benefit Plan (SHBP) is excited to announce the addition of the new wellness partner, Healthways, to provide members and covered spouses with comprehensive well-being resources and incentive programs. Healthways will also administer the 2014 action-based Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) incentives that will allow members and covered spouses to earn additional dollars for their HRA account. By completing the incentive actions, you are investing in your health and increasing the amount in your HRA account. SHBP members will have access to a variety of Healthways’ tools, activities and services.
2014 HRA dollars
Members and/or spouses (if covered) who met the 2013 Wellness Requirements (in any of the 2013 Wellness or Standard options) will each have $240 credited to the member’s HRA account on January 1, 2014. Any unused dollars in your 2013 HRA account under Cigna or UnitedHealthcare will rollover into your 2014 HRA account. HRA dollars remaining from 2013 will rollover by April 2014. This allows 2013 HRA dollars to be used to pay your out-of-pocket expenses for 2013 claims filed no later than January 1, 2014.
