Starting this year, any biometric screenings completed between November 16 and December 31, 2015, will not be eligible for 2016 health and wellness dollars. However, you and your covered spouse or domestic partner still have until December 31, 2015, to submit a completed Health Care Provider Screening Form for a biometric screening completed between January 1 and November 15, 2015, to earn health and wellness dollars.
The Optum website will not be available during this six-week period (that is, November 16 to December 31, 2015).
To support you in making healthy lifestyle changes, you and your covered spouse or domestic partner will each be able to earn up to $800 in health and wellness dollars in 2015 if you elect coverage in a Wells Fargo account-based medical plan or a High-Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) Kaiser medical plan and complete all the health and wellness activities by the deadline. Wells Fargo has contracted with Optum as the administrator for the health and wellness activities.
Knowing your health risks is important, but putting that knowledge to use could change your life. Use what you learn from your health and wellness activities to make better lifestyle choices and help reach your personal goals for good health and well-being.
After you have completed each activity, the health and wellness dollars will be deposited in your health reimbursement account (HRA) or health savings account (HSA) in about 30 days. If your health and wellness dollars have not been deposited in your account after 30 days, you may submit a formal inquiry to Optum. Activities must be completed between January 1 and November 15, 2015, for you to earn 2015 health and wellness dollars.
||Team members who are not enrolled in a Wells Fargo medical option or who are enrolled in the Indemnity Medical Plan — Anthem BCBS, UnitedHealthcare Global — Expatriate Insurance, or a Kaiser HMO or POS plan.|
||Covered dependent children are not eligible to participate in health and wellness activities or to earn health and wellness dollars regardless of age.|
Note: The amount of health and wellness dollars that you and your covered spouse or domestic partner can earn will be prorated if you become covered under the medical plan midyear (that is, if you are a new hire or add coverage because of a Qualified Event).
