Health & Wellness Initiative Program

 

Beginning January 1, 2019, 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, lay employees, 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, 2019.  Clergy members on the Conference's active health insurance plan are required to complete the HealthQuotient and the Biometric Screening by August 31, 2019. Dependents, retired clergy over age 65, and lay employees on the annual conference health plan are not required to complete the HQ and Biometric Screening but are strongly encouraged to participate in the wellness program.

Participants should begin the process after January 1, 2019.
 
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 2019).
     
  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 7:00 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 contact the Benefits' Office to receive the letter and forms you will need to take with you to your physician. Please provide your mailing address in the email.

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