Employee Health Plan – Healthy Choice Guidelines

Personalized Information

In early January caregivers and spouses covered by the health plan receive personalized instructions outlining the information the plan has on record and if additional information is required. To access this information members can access their Healthy Choice Portal account.  The portal describes what the plan member needs to do during the first nine months of the year to earn the best premium for the following year.

NOTE:  2017 health status (chronic condition, healthy, or unknown) are displayed in your Healthy Choice portal account (click here to login to your account)
                                                                                                    
Please also keep in mind: If your spouse is enrolled in the health plan, he or she also will need to fully meet Healthy Choice requirements for you to qualify for the best premium in 2018. So please help them create an account on the Healthy Choice Portal and review the steps needed to participate.
