    This year, we look forward to new ways in which Healthy Rewards can support you and we can all support each other on the journey to living well.

    Over the past year, we asked you to consider the unique reasons each of you has for living well. Finding that motivation that reason for continually making healthy choices is the foundation for building a healthy lifestyle.

    But sustaining healthy choices isnt always easy. Thats why we need support systems to help us maintain our forward progress. Maybe its a workout buddy who keeps you on track at the gym; or a coworker who urges you to try new, healthier foods. I personally find support and motivation from my family. My husband, daughters, sisters, and now my beautiful granddaughter, all inspire and support me on my wellness journey.

    The Healthy Rewards program offered by Childrens is another support system intended to help us focus on better health. Many of the activities are perfect for sharing with co-workers, family members and friends.

    We can accomplish so much more with the support of others. Its what our value of Collaboration is all about. This year, we look forward to new ways in which Healthy Rewards can support you and we can all support each other on the journey to living well. Because wellness, as you may have noticed, starts with we.

    How it worksThe 2016/2017 Healthy Rewards program runs Sept. 1, 2016 to Aug. 31, 2017. Achieve your health goals and earn credits by taking part in wellness activities. Log in to your Healthy Rewards wellness portal at CHWHealthyRewards.org and enter each activity to confirm that it was completed. As credits add up, you become eligible for health plan premium savings or a wellness incentive.

    To earn your 2017 Healthy Rewards credits, all activities must be completed by Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2017.

    If you are enrolled in a Childrens Hospital health plan:

    Credits earned by Aug. 31, 2017 apply toward the cost of your 2018 health plan premiums (starting Jan. 1, 2018).

    If a spouse is covered under your health plan, he or she is eligible to participate, earn credits and save money. Healthy Rewards eligibility begins the same day as health plan coverage.

    Employees (and enrolled spouses) must complete BOTH (1) annual online Wellness Assessment and (2) a biometric screening to earn a premium reduction or wellness incentive.

    Other activity credits add up and help you earn a Childrens health plan premium reduction or wellness incentive. See the Healthy Rewards wellness incentive offering chart in this brochure for details.
