Wellness Points Program

Participate in the University Wellness Program. On Oct. 1, 2016, start earning wellness points to reduce the cost of your 2018 medical plan premium. Take the wellness assessment by Mar. 31, 2017 to earn 150 points. It takes 10-15 minutes, and you can take it during your work day. Add another 150 points if your covered spouse takes the assessment.

Why Choose an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Plan?

New in 2017 - you have more ACO networks to choose from. In an ACO, Medica and the provider network work together to deliver a new level of service: seamless health care, coverage, information and support. If you find the "extras" in care and service support valuable or want to save money, an ACO might be right for you.
