Healthy Boiler Wellness Incentive Program launches January 1, 2018

The Healthy Boiler Wellness Incentive Program, introduced during benefits open enrollment for 2018, begins January 1, 2018, and is designed to help encourage healthy lifestyles and overall wellness for employees and spouses covered on Purdue medical plans.

“We are excited to introduce the wellness incentive program to the Purdue community,” said Candace Shaffer, director of benefits in Human Resources. “We hope the employees engage in the program so they can reap the wellness benefits as well as the financial benefits available to them through the program.”

The three-step program provides faculty and staff the opportunity to earn incentive dollars for their Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) or Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRAs). By completing all three steps, the appropriate funds will be deposited into either an employee’s HSA or, for those employees who are not receiving contributions to an HSA, an HRA that will automatically be opened for the employee.

The steps of the program are outlined in the chart below:

Must complete step 1 to be paid for step 2. Must complete steps 1 and 2 to be eligible to receive payment for step 3.
