University of Alaska's new wellness program is here!
You'll find a lot of things that look the same, and some things are a little different. You can now connect your Apple or Google (Android) device for activity tracking through the health kit on those devices. You still need to take a health risk assessment and have a biometric screening but now we call those "point" activities instead of credits. This means you need 7 points instead of 5 on the old plan, but it's all the same activities. And for those who like to collect points, we're offering a special raffle later on for those who earn up to 12 points!
Log on to PreventionCloud.com using your username of your FIRSTNAMELASTNAMEBIRTHYEAR (all caps, no spaces) and your default password is your birthday in MMDDYYYY format.
So for example, Walter Smith Jr. born in 1962 would be WALTERSMITHJR1962 for his username, and 01131962 for his password, which he'll be prompted to change to something else.
The full program manual is available on the dashboard, or you can find it here to guide you through the program.
Things you can do now:
- Take your health risk assessment
- Connect your Fitbit directly from the site, or other devices through the PreventionCloud app
- Download a physician packet from the dashboard (You'll get a personalized packet just for you with a numerical code matching it to your account. Your name won't show anywhere on it for privacy and you or your physician can upload directly to the site.)
- Download a LabCorp voucher to get your screening at a local LabCorp facility in Anchorage or Fairbanks
- Complete your tobacco free attestation or enroll in tobacco cessation
- Sign up for coaching
- Take online classes and webinars
- Record a local wellness or sporting event
Things we're working on and coming soon:
- Single Sign on with your UA credentials
- File transfer of up to five years of prior biometric data from prior program
- File feeds from Premera and VSP going back to May 1 for wellness, dental and vision exam records
New hires who have come onto the plan since the old program ended will have 90 days from program launch (Sept. 16, 2019) to complete a health risk assessment and a biometric screening to earn a pro-rated FY20 rebate. Then just complete the five remaining points to earn the FY21 rebate, to be paid in November 2020.
For those who qualified for the rebate under the old program (completed all requirements by April 30), you'll have your rebate paid on the November 22 paycheck.
