Health and Wellness - Take Charge

The University is committed to enhancing its Wellness Program by including new opportunities and tools to 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. Please visit the HR Professional Development site to register for wellness seminars and classes.

Save money on your medical plan premiums by completing a few easy steps. You and your covered spouse/LDA must complete the following steps in order to qualify:

  • Complete the online Health Assessment at www.carefirst.com/myaccount between July 1, 2016 and October 28, 2016.  
  • Have an annual preventative care physical exam (your annual physical must have been completed within the past year).
  • Have the CareFirst Health and Wellness Evaluation Form completed by your physician between July 1, 2016 and October 28, 2016.
  • Enter the results from your Health and Wellness Evaluation Form to your online account by logging in to your My Account portal at www.carefirst.com/myaccount. All fields must be completed to receive credit. If you already faxed or mailed your form to CareFirst please enter the results directly to your My Account portal between July 1, 2016 and October 28, 2016

After you have successfully completed all the required steps you will see two green check marks in your My Account portal. It is your responsibility to confirm successful completion of the wellness steps.

If you have questions or need assistance with the My Account portal please refer to the Wellness Program Support Guide located below under Wellness Resources. The Guide provides detailed wellness program information such as how to log in to your CareFirst My Account portal, how to complete the steps within My Account, My Account troubleshooting and CareFirst technical support information.

Current employees: Your annual physical must have been completed within the past year. The Health and Evaluation Form must be completed by a physician and sent to CareFirst between July 1, 2016 and October 28, 2016. If you do not complete the requirements by October 28, 2016, the “non-wellness” rates will go into effect with your first paycheck in December.

New hires: Your annual physical must have been completed within the last eight months or within 120 days of eligibility. The online Health Assessment and Health and Evaluation Form must be completed within 120 days of eligibility. If you do not complete the requirements by the deadline, the “non-wellness” rates will go into effect on the first of the fifth month following date of hire.

* Your personal health information is never disclosed to Loyola nor is it used to determine medical premiums. Your Health 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 premium rates. If you have questions or need assistance, contact the PSA Benefits Hotline at 1-877-716-6618 or email Loyola@psafinancial.com

HealthyRewards for HealthyBlue HSA Participants:

Once you complete the three steps above, CareFirst will reduce your deductible by $200. In a Family, each adult can earn a $200 reward for completing the three steps, while children ages 2-17 can earn $25. However, the maximum reward for your family is limited to $400. If you have already met your deductible, CareFirst will reimburse you with a check.

If you use your HSA to pay a portion of the deductible you are being reimbursed, you should notify your employer of the reimbursement and contact your tax advisor regarding any potential tax consequences.
