The Partnership Promise
If you choose the Partnership PPO, you must commit to complete the Partnership Promise. The 2013 Partnership Promise builds on previous years.
The 2013 Partnership Promise aims to help healthy members stay healthy and to slow or stop the progression of disease among those currently living with chronic illnesses.
All members and covered spouses must:
- Complete the online Healthways Well-Being Assessment™ (health questionnaire) by March 15
- Engage in ONE ParTNers for Health wellness activity by July 15
- Keep your contact information current with your employer
Members and covered spouses who use tobacco must also:
- Engage in the tobacco cessation program if you are a tobacco user
Members and covered spouses identified as at risk by Healthways must also:
- Complete a biometric screening at your health care provider's office between July 15, 2012, and July 15, 2013
- Participate in health coaching
Members and covered spouses identified for case management by BlueCross, Cigna or Magellan must also:
- Participate in case management
Note: If it is unreasonably difficult because of a medical or mental health condition for you to achieve the standards to fulfill the Partnership Promise, or if it is medically inadvisable for you to attempt to fulfill the Partnership Promise, call our ParTNers for Health Wellness Program at 1.888.741.3390, and they will work with you to develop an alternate way to fulfill the Promise.
A health screening for all members is not required in 2013.
New employees (hired on or after 1/1/13)and their covered spouses, as well as newly covered members, will be required to complete the online Well-Being Assessment and screening within 120 days of their insurance coverage effective date. Read more about new member requirements »
Both you and your covered spouse must meet the 2013 Partnership Promise requirements to remain eligible for the Partnership PPO in 2014. All members enrolled in the Partnership PPO must fulfill the Partnership Promise even if the Partnership PPO is not the primary insurance plan. Children do not have to meet the requirements of the Partnership Promise.
New Wellness Partner
