About the Primary Care Provider Attestation

New in the fall of 2020, the Primary Care Provider Attestation is one of the three options (along with Tobacco Attestation and Biometric Screening) that are offered for faculty and staff who want to earn the Monthly Wellness Incentive in 2021.

The Primary Care Provider Attestation form can be found on the Wellness Tile within HCM between September 1 and November 30th annually.

New hires to the university should complete the paper form included in their orientation packet. Completion of the Primary Care Provider Attestation Form (along with the Quest Biometric Screening and Primary Care Provider Attestation) is one of two activities necessary to obtain the Wellness Premium Incentive in 2021 as a Benelect plan participant. NOTE: The Health Risk Assessment is required for all Wellness Participants.

Primary Care Provider (PCP) Attestation
Numerous benefits are associated with having a primary care provider (PCP). Not only do regular visits with a PCP encourage preventive exam compliance (e.g., colonoscopy, mammograms, etc.), but they also lead to increased rates of necessary immunizations. Recent data analysis from our annual Health Risk Assessment (HRA) process indicates that our faculty and staff compliance with screening exams and immunizations is not as strong as other higher education benchmark groups. 

The PCP Attestation Form requires you to honestly attest that you have a primary care provider and you have had or will have a primary care visit between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021.
