HealthQuest Deadlines

Discount and Incentive Deadlines

Employees and spouses enrolled in the State Employee Health Plan who complete the ...

HealthQuest 2018 Deadlines

Employees and spouses enrolled in the State Employee Health Plan who complete the REQUIRED Health Assessment and earn credits by participating in wellness activities throughout the year can earn a premium reduction in 2019. Members enrolled in Plans C, J, Q and N can also earn HRA/HSA dollars to be awarded throughout 2018.

 

Deadline for 2018 HealthQuest Employer HSA/HRA Contributions

If you elected Plans C, J, N or Q, you are eligible to receive employer contributions to your Health Savings Account or Health Reimbursement Account.  Each HealthQuest point you earn is worth a $10 employer contribution into your HSA or HRA, up to $500 each year. Spouses are also eligible to earn up to $500. However, these HSA/HRA employer funds have to be processed on a 2018 paycheck, so the points have to be received by the State Employee Health Plan no later than November 19, 2018 in order to receive the HSA/HRA employer HealthQuest contributions. Several options exist for earning points quickly, like the EAP On-Demand Webinars and Health Coaching phone calls. However, please note the processing time for wellness exams, below.

 

Wellness Exams (Medical, Dental (2) and Vision)

You can earn points for various activities, including getting your annual wellness exam, two dental cleanings, and a vision exam each year. However, it takes two to six weeks from the time the provider files the claim for it to be processed and then sent to the State Employee Health Plan.

 

HSA/HRA Employer HealthQuest Contributions

o If you elected Plan C, J, N or Q, it would be wise make sure your wellness exams were completed at least six weeks prior to November 19, 2018 (which would be  October 8, 2018) and the claim is filed by the provider’s office immediately. Please note that there is no date of service by which the State Employee Health Plan has stated they can guarantee your wellness visit would be eligible for 2018 HSA/HRA dollars. It has only been stated that wellness visits can take up to six weeks for processing.

Premium Incentive Discount  (up to $20 off per check)

o Employees in all plans are eligible to receive a premium discount of up to $20 off per check. If you are covering your spouse, your spouse must also earn 40 HealthQuest points to receive the full discount for 2019; ($10 off for employee + $10 off for spouse = $20 off total per check). If you are not covering a spouse, you must earn 40 points to get the $20 discount. The deadline for the premium discount is different than the HSA/HRA deadline, so you still have until December 31, 2018 for the credits to be received for the premium incentive discount. Therefore, it would be wise to have your visits completed and the claims filed at least six weeks prior to the December 31, 2018 discount deadline.

 

Biometric Screening Deadlines

On-site Biometric Screening (You are eligible to get the 5 credits for attending an onsite screening plus the 6 credit for blood pressure)

You are eligible to earn the most points by obtaining your biometric values this way. Our final 2018 Onsite Biometric Screening will be held in the Memorial Union Ballroom on October 15, 2018. You can check http://www.kdheks.gov/hcf/healthquest/download/Biometric_Screening_Events_Schedule.pdf for other onsite screenings at various locations throughout the state. If you have not done so already, register now in your HealthQuest Portal, or by calling 888-275-1205.

 

There are two more options for obtaining biometric values:

· Physician Form (you will not get the 5 credits for attending an onsite screening)

o HRA/HSA deadline - 11/14/2018

o 2019 premium reduction - 12/27/2018

 

· Home Test Kit (You will get the 5 biometric screening attendance credits, but will not be able to get the 6 credits for blood pressure)

o HRA/HSA deadline - 11/5/2018

o 2019 premium reduction – 12/10/2018
