Healthy Boiler Wellness Program launches
The new year is off to a cold start, but Human Resources is hoping to warm things up for employees with the new Healthy Boiler Wellness Program. Effective Jan. 1, the program is up and running, offering benefits-eligible faculty and staff -- as well as spouses covered on a Purdue medical plan -- the opportunity to earn up to $500 in incentives to participate. The overall health and wellness focus of the University, in partnership with the Center for Healthy Living on Purdue's West Lafayette campus, covers all Purdue campuses.
Through the Healthy Boiler Wellness Program portal, employees will log their activities and other information related to the 2018 wellness incentive as well as be able to access supporting health and wellness resources. In addition, a frequently asked questions document on the program is available via the portal. The FAQs will be updated as the program develops; be sure to check back periodically for new information.
The portal is accessible at www.healthyboiler.com. Employees and covered spouses will need to register to access the site. Please note: Employees must register and log in first in order to allow spousal access to the site.
To register from the link above:
Click the REGISTER button (in gold)
* When prompted, provide employee first name (as it appears on pay stub).
* Provide last name (as it appears on pay stub).
* Enter Employee ID number including two leading zeros, for a total of 10 digits.
* Continue with the steps as prompted to finish registration.
* Please disregard the referral code box, unless you have received an email invitation, with a referral code, from a spouse or a friend.
Once registered and logged into the portal, employees and spouses can find the requirements and the links to complete the tasks under the Earn tab.
As a reminder, eligibility to receive the incentive requires completing all three objectives listed below. Eligible employees and spouses will receive the respective funds into their health savings account or into a health reimbursement account.
* Select a primary care provider -- $50 employee only/$100 employee and spouse.
* Complete a physical and biometrics -- $100 employee only/$200 employee and spouse.
* Complete two pre-approved wellness activities -- $100 employee only/$200 employee and spouse.
The wellness community available to faculty and staff includes not only the Healthy Boiler Wellness Program portal but other resources as well. For example, the Center for Healthy Living will begin a blog this month focused on health and wellness. The blog will be accessible via the portal and is part of the ongoing communications for the program. Employees will receive health and wellness information weekly via multiple sources -- Purdue Today, designed emails from Human Resources, the blog previously mentioned and an end-of-the-month wrap-up email from One to One Health, the private, physician-led company that manages the Center for Healthy Living on Purdue’s West Lafayette campus.
“Excitement continues to build for the Healthy Boiler Wellness Program, incentives and the many opportunities offered to help our employees live healthier lives,” says Candace Shaffer, director of benefits in Human Resources. “We want to make sure everyone is aware of those opportunities as well as other information related to health and wellness. With that in mind, throughout 2018, our communications will be focused on information, resources and acquiring skills to help our Purdue community create healthier lifestyles best suited for themselves and their families.”
