Health & Wellness Initiative Program

 

Beginning January 1, 2018, the Alabama-West Florida Annual Conference Board of Pension & Health Benefits will continue the Health and Wellness Initiative Program. The goal of the program is to encourage our pastors and their dependents to live healthier lifestyles by providing them with personal health information, screening and coaching thus helping the Conference to reduce and control the cost of health insurance claims.

 

The Health and Wellness Initiative will continue beginning January 1, 2018.  Clergy members on the Conference's active health insurance plan are required to complete the HealthQuotient and the Biometric Screening by August 31, 2018. Dependents, retired clergy over age 65 and employees who are on the annual conference health plan are not required to complete the HQ and Biometric Screening but are encouraged to participate.

Participants should not begin the process until after January 1, 2018.
 
The following two steps are required: 

  1. To complete your HealthQuotient online assessment, login or register (if you do not have an account setup) at www.mybluewellness.  The online HQ can also be completed at  Annual Conference during the health screening process (June 2018).

      2.  A Biometric  Health Screening is required. You may choose from one of the following options to complete the screening.

  • Option 1: An on-site Biometric Health Screening will be available at Annual Conference.  Biometric Screening will be held from 7:30 am  until 12:30 pm on Monday and Tuesday.  It is a fasting screening.
  • Option 2:  You may choose to go to your personal physician for the biometric health screening.  Co-pays are applicable to this doctor's visit. Please download and print the physician's form and take with you. (form available January 2018).

 
Participants can find additional information on the Conference's website.  Questions about this new initiative can be sent to BeLinda Carnegie, you may call the conference office at 334.356.8014 and ask for BeLinda.
