Lowering Premiums

Your Health Benefits: Planning for 2021 Benefits

Participation in the Well-being Program is voluntary.  The intent of the program is for you to know your biometric numbers and have an understanding of your health.  Incentives are offered to those who participate in accordance with requirements of the Well-being Program and are in the form of:

  • a reduced health insurance premium for those who enroll in WoodmenLife’s health plan in 2021 or
  • a well-being reimbursement for those who do not enroll.

You have the opportunity to earn an incentive by visiting your healthcare professional and completing the biometric screening form between October 1, 2019 and September 30, 2020.  The biometric screening form must be uploaded to your Incentive Tracker on guidanceresources.com by September 30, 2020.  Select here for a link to the biometric screening form. The incentive will be based solely on your submittal of your biometric screening data by September 30, 2020. 

You can continue to accumulate points by passing biometric screenings or by completing the health assessment, activities, coaching and/or online workshops. For instance, the biometric screening, in addition to making you eligible for the incentive, is also worth 100 points.  WoodmenLife encourages you to earn as many points as possible. Those participants who earn more than 500 points will receive special recognition at the end of the program year.

No activity is necessary.  Health insurance premiums are based on the Preferred tier through the end of 2021.
