Employees who opted out of Purdue medical coverage still eligible to use Center for Healthy Living
All benefits-eligible employees may use the Center for Healthy Living, even if they have chosen not to participate in a Purdue medical plan. They are eligible for the following services at no charge:
* Wellness coaching.
* Registered dietitian services.
* Medication therapy management.
* Employee assistance counseling.
For preventive and primary care and the treatment of common illnesses, these employees will pay "fair market value" fees. The center will provide a receipt that the employee may submit to his or her outside medical plan. For sample fair market value pricing, visit the Center for Healthy Living website at www.purdue.edu/healthyliving.
Graduate staff will continue to use the Purdue University Student Health Center (PUSH) for on-site health care services.
Purdue retirees under age 65 who are covered on the Purdue Choice Fund, the Purdue Incentive or the Purdue Copay medical plans may use the center; however, retirees who are on a Medicare supplement plan are not eligible.
For more information about who is eligible and the cost of services, visit www.purdue.edu/healthyliving or contact the Center for Healthy Living at 49-40111.
