Health and Wellness - Take Charge

This year, the University is enhancing its Wellness Program to include new opportunities that will allow you to achieve a healthier you. Please be sure to check back frequently, as we will continue to update this site with planned activities and wellness education tools.

Save money on your medical premiums for the upcoming 2015 - 2016 plan year by completing a few Wellness steps. Employees and their spouses insured under any Loyola University Maryland Medical Plan must complete the following steps to qualify for the Wellness Compliant Rates:

1. Complete the online Health Assessment on the CareFirst website (learn how to access your CareFirst benefits portal and see where to complete the assessment*).
2. Have an annual physical exam between June 1, 2014 and August 31, 2015. 
3. Have the Health/Biometric Screening Form completed by a physician and sent to CareFirst no later than August 31, 2015 (PPO and HMO participants only). HealthyBlue participants must have their physician complete the Health and Wellness Evaluation Form and sent to CareFirst no later than August 31, 2015.

Your personal health information is never disclosed to Loyola nor is it used to determine medical premiums. Your Health Risk Assessment results are submitted directly to CareFirst with only aggregate data reported to human resources. Please note that the wellness requirements are not outcomes based. Participants just have to complete the steps in order to receive the wellness compliant premium rates. Wellness compliant rates will increase to the non-compliant rates if all the steps are not completed and the form is not received by August 31, 2015.

If you have questions or need assistance, contact the PSA Benefits Hotline at 1-877-716-6618 or email Loyola@psafinancial.com
