Participation + Eligibility

Participation + Eligibility

During each orientation session for new hires, the wellness program is explained and handouts are provided that describe each of the wellness activities and how those adding medical coverage can participate. Between January and June of each year, new hires to the university have the first 30 days of their employment to complete each of the three activities to qualify for the monthly Wellness Premium Incentive. They will then have the opportunity to meet participation guidelines in the four Wellness Program Incentive areas to obtain additional incentive(s) if they wish. New hires to the university between July and December each year can participate in the fall wellness activities to receive the Wellness Premium Incentives in the next calendar year.

 

You have the first 30 days of your coverage period to complete the annual wellness activities and become eligible for the monthly Wellness Premium Incentive. Faculty or staff members adding Benelect medical coverage between July and December can participate in the fall wellness activities to receive the Wellness Premium Incentives in the next calendar year.

 

All benefits-eligible faculty and staff may participate in our wellness programming. Those who do not select CWRU health coverage will not be eligible for the monetary incentives but are welcome to participate in programming like Meditation class, Weight Watchers or Selfhelpworks on-line programming.

 

A reasonable alternative standard is available for those unable to meet participation requirements for the wellness program. If you are on leave during the annual fall participation period, you can request an extension for participation or other accommodation by contacting Elizabeth Click, the university’s medical director, at erc10@case.edu.

 

You are unable to receive incentives, but you are welcome to complete the Biometric Screening process. In addition, you are able to register for the on-site or on-line classes like S.M.A.R.T., Meditation, Selfhelpworks classes and Books@Work.

 

Your unique ID is your CWRU Network ID—the series of letters and numbers you use for email purposes (e.g., abc123).

 

Currently, spouses are not eligible for the incentive.  Only the primary covered employee is able to obtain the monthly Wellness Premium Incentive.  However, employee spouses can participate in the Biometric Screening and may participate in wellness programs.

 

Yes. Each university employee with primary medical insurance coverage can complete the annual wellness activities and then receive the monthly Wellness Premium Incentive.
