Participating employees have the opportunity to receive one of two wellness incentives by completing the requirements by October 31, 2020

 

  • Health Assessment: Available through the online wellness portal (50 points)
  • Biometric Screening**: Complete at the Faculty and Staff Clinic or your primary physician. The UAH screening form must be turned in to the Faculty and Staff clinic to receive points.

 

Important - Wellness Incentive Requirement Changes

Since we are faced with continued uncertainty, Charger Fit has decided to eliminate the biometric screenings as a requirement to get your Charger Fit wellness incentive for 2020; however, we will keep it as a point awarding opportunity. Employees can still visit their PCP or the Faculty and Staff Clinic to get the biometric screening if they choose.

Tier 1: Complete Health Assessment (50 points), Biometric Screening** (50 points), AND earn 300 additional points* (400 total points) to receive a $50 wellness incentive.

Tier 2: Complete Health Assessment (50 points), Biometric Screening** (50 points), AND earn 400 additional points* (500 total points) to receive a $100 wellness incentive.

*Point earning activities can be found at www.myGilsbar.com.  Log in to the wellness center and click "Incentives & Rewards" tile for more details on each point earning opportunity. Activities will also be listed monthly in the Charger Fit Wellness Newsletter.
