Why Healthy Boiler?

The Healthy Boiler Wellness Program was introduced in January 2018 and continues into 2024 in response to significantly increasing healthcare costs and trends as a way to provide benefits-eligible employees and spouses covered on a Purdue health plan an opportunity to improve their health and wellness and earn financial incentives at the same time. Healthy Boiler encourages employees and their dependents to be aware of their health risks and become more active in maintaining/improving their overall health. This initiative directly aligns employees to focus on prevention, awareness and healthier choices; hopefully resulting in lower healthcare costs (or at least lower increases) in the future. It’s time to put health and wellness in the forefront for employees and dependents.

As the program continues to flourish, it has become evident that the Healthy Boiler Wellness Program could be and is, even more than simply an incentive program. While the university remains committed to the physical wellness of employees, overall health and well-being covers more than that alone.

Today, the Healthy Boiler Program is a multi-faceted approach to overall well-being composed of five pillars:  behavioral health, financial wellness, physical health, social wellness and work-life integration. The Healthy Boiler Program provides care in each area by offering cost-controlled benefits and easily accessible resources that help Purdue employees (and their families) across all campuses transform their lives into the healthiest, happiest versions possible. Through each of the pillars, the Healthy Boiler Program:
