Go on a wellness journey
The employee wellness program includes “Journeys,” interactive topics designed to help you build healthy habits using easy, achievable steps. You’ll get 50 points for each Journey you complete in the employee wellness program at mymedica.com, up to a maximum of 300 reward points per year.
When you earn 300 points in the employee wellness program by Aug. 31, 2017, you’ll qualify for a discounted wellness rate on your 2018 health insurance premiums. (In 2016, savings on the insurance premiums are about $400 a year for a single person and $1,200 a year for a family.) You’ll also receive a $20 gift card for each 100 points you earn in the program (up to $100).
Expect a Journey to take four to six weeks, depending on your unique path. Start soon to earn points by the Aug. 31 deadline. Journeys will be recommended for you based on your answers in Compass, the online health assessment, but you can choose any of the Journeys available.
When you start a Journey you will start with stage one and complete several little steps until you unlock the challenge step for that stage. When you complete the challenge step, you will move to the next stage. The process repeats for each stage until you complete the Journey.
Journeys integrate with social media sites so you can share your progress with others if you want.
