Health and wellness activities

Improve your lifestyle and earn health and wellness dollars

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 2014 if you elect coverage in an account-based medical plan and complete all the health and wellness activities. 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.

The health and wellness activities for 2014 are:
  • Completing an online health assessment.
  • Receiving a biometric screening at an Optum on-site event or as part of your annual preventive care examination.
  • Completing an online wellness education program or actively participating in a wellness coaching program by phone.

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 45 days. If your health and wellness dollars have not been deposited in your account after 45 days, you may submit a formal inquiry to Optum. Activities must be completed between January 1 and November 15, 2014, for you to earn 2014 health and wellness dollars.

Step 1: Eligibility

  • Team members who have elected COBRA coverage or are on approved short- or long-term leave and are enrolled in either the HRA-Based Medical Plan or the HSA-Based Medical Plan.

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).
