Wellness

The Texas A&M University System recognizes the importance of fostering employee wellness. The Wellness Initiative includes a two-pronged approach: incentivizing employees to complete healthy tasks, and engaging employees in healthy behaviors through campus- and agency-based programs encouraging wellness.

Two-Step Wellness Program – Receive the lowest rate on your health insurance premium

 

Completing any two steps on your MyEvive Personalized checklist* will ensure that you have the lowest rate for your health insurance premiums.

Highlights of the Wellness Incentive:

  • Complete two wellness activities between September 1 and June 30. 
  • Applies to employees AND covered spouses enrolled in the A&M Care Plan.
  • A premium reduction of $30 per month will be applied for each individual (you and your spouse) who completes any two wellness tasks on your MyEvive Personalized Checklist by June 30.
  • Retirees and graduate students enrolled in the Grad Plan will automatically receive the lower premium.
  • You can verify your completion status for the wellness premium incentive by logging into or registering for your MyEvive account at tamus.myevive.com.
  • New employees have a grace period of the current plan year, plus the next plan year.

If you choose not to participate in the wellness premium incentive program, you will not receive the $30 premium reduction. Contact MyEvive member services if you believe you have completed a task, but the information is not reflected in your MyEvive account. (note: remember that it can take 6 to 8 weeks from the time of your wellness exam for the claim to process and the incentive to show on your MyEvive account)

*The alternate health assessment available on Well onTarget through Blue Access for Members (BAM) can also count toward your wellness credit, but must be paired with your annual exam. The Well onTarget HA cannot be paired with any other activity for credit.
