Why is the incentive only available to Benelect medical participants?

The university offers wellness activities to encourage healthy behaviors. Over time, changes in behavior should improve health and lower use of health care resources. That can mean significant savings for a self-insured university because fewer health care expenses should be incurred over time. Any resulting decrease in health care expenses is a benefit for the university and to the individual in lowering expenses associated with the medical benefit plan. Other faculty and staff not covered by the Benelect program likely have similar programs available to them through their benefits plans.
