The PEBC Wellness Program began January 1, 2015 as a way to promote a culture of better health.  Here is a quick overview of the Program: 

  • Active employees enrolled in either the PEBC PPO Medical Plan or the PEBC HDP Medical Plan can earn a $300 reward by earning wellness points.  This is an annual reward, and an employee cannot receive more than one $300 reward per calendar year.
  • To earn a reward, employees must first register online at myuhc.com.
  • To earn the $300 reward, an employee must earn 300 points through the options described in this booklet.  Points are not prorated, and partial points do not count.  
  • Points must be earned during the reward earning period of January 1 through October 31 of any calendar year.
  • An online Health Assessment at myuhc.com must be completed each year before getting credit for additional wellness points earned.
  • Rewards are paid out three (3) times per year based on the earnings period in which the employee reaches the 300-point requirement.  You must be an active employee at the time of payout in order to receive a wellness reward.
  • The default payment method for the $300 reward is a cash payment included in a payroll check.  For PEBC County member groups only, employees may choose to have the reward deposited in a health care flexible spending account (FSA) or in a health savings account (HSA), subject to the rules and limits of the FSA or HSA. 
  • Employees who opt-out of PEBC medical plan coverage may access the wellness portal, take the health assessment and participate in activities, but are not eligible to earn points or dollar rewards.
