Earning Points – and Rewards – with WellMASS

Two key incentives of participating in WellMASS are an increased awareness of your health status and the tools and resources necessary to help improve it.  Both of these incentives can be taken advantage of by participating in onsite programming like the Weight Loss Challenge and Lunch ‘n Learn seminars and, for employees who work in the executive and legislative branches or constitutional offices and receive their health insurance through the GIC, by logging on to the WellMASS site and accessing all of the wellness-related tools and information it has to offer.  Employees who utilize the WellMASS site have an added bonus of being able to earn points that may add up to a nice financial incentive.  Here’s how it works:

Employees receive points for taking advantage of certain parts of the website.  Any employee who earns 100 points by May 31 will be entered into a drawing to win one of 50 $250 gift cards, or a grand prize.  The initial deadline for the drawing was February 15, but it was recently extended due to demand.  You can earn points in the following ways:

Completing your Health Assessment – 50 points

Participating in last fall’s Step It Up! walking campaign – 25 points

Visiting an online health center – 25 points

Participating in an online healthy living program – 25 points

Enrolling in phone-based health coaching – 50 points

Enrolling in mail-based health coaching – 25 points

Committing to being a Wellness Champion for 1 year – 25 points

While the deadline for certain ways to earn points, like participating in Step It Up!, has passed, there is still plenty of time to take advantage of the WellMASS website and the tools and resources it has to offer.  May 31 is more than three months away; use those three months to get an idea of your health status and work on improving it by taking your health assessment and utilizing the convenient tools WellMASS offers to help you improve your health and wellness.
