There are many ways to earn points toward your Premium Discount or HSA/HRA Contributions! Some require a visit with a medical provider, some require an hour of your attention for a pre-planned webinar, and yet others require your attention when it is convenient to you. Please see the schedules below to find your next opportunity to start earning HealthQuest points and building healthy habits!
The Health Assessment Questionnaire should be your first stop after gaining access to the HealthQuest portal. This assessment takes less than 15 minutes, and provides a baseline estimate of your wellness risk factors in a variety of areas. The results of this assessment can be useful in identifying your personal wellness goals and determining which wellness activities will have the greatest benefit in helping you to reach those goals. In addition, you will earn 5 points upon completion of the overview and quiz.
HealthQuest and the State Employee Health Plan (SEHP) reward those who make their personal wellness a priority. There are many healthy behaviors encouraged by medical professionals to promote overall wellness. Attending regularly scheduled check-ups is one of the most common ways to maintain overall wellness over a lifetime, and can help catch potential health problems so that they can be corrected and maintained early on. You can earn points by attending the appointments you would anyway, and make your health and wellness a priority!
