For HealthFlex participants, wellness is as easy as 1, 2, 3

4/1/2010


Your Conference Benefits Office wants to make sure you are as healthy as you can be, and the 2010 HealthFlex Wellness Incentives are helping United Methodist HealthFlex participants do just that.  Read more about three easy steps that help us stay strong, fit, and happy.  

Step 1: Take the online healthquotient by August 31, 2010

The HealthQuotient is a simple, online assessment of health. It’s the first step to wellness.

  • Go to the General Board of Pensions and Health Benefits web site at http://www.gbophb.org
  • Click on “HealthFlex/WedMD” on the right side of the page
  • Log in or register as a new user. Note that if a participant is married and the spouse is covered, then BOTH people must register separately with their Social Security Numbers. 
  • Complete the HealthQuotient—it takes less than 30 minutes!
  • WARNING! If a participant and spouse (if married and both are covered) do not take the HQ by August 31, 2010, the next year’s deductibles will increase. In 2011, the health insurance deductibles will increase an additional $250 for an individual and $500 for a family ABOVE whatever plan the conference offers.

Step 2: Participate in the Virgin Healthmiles program

The second step to wellness is physical exercise. Virgin HealthMiles is a walking program designed to motivate people to become more active. Pedometers are provided free of charge, and participants can earn up to $300 annually in rewards!

  • Go to the General Board of Pensions and Health Benefits web site at http://www.gbophb.org
  • Click on “HealthFlex/WedMD” on the right side of the page
  • Log in or register as a new user.
  • Click the “Join Now” link at the top of the page.
  • Complete the registration process and start walking!


Step 3: An annual wellness exam and a ProCheck screening
The third step to wellness is to schedule an annual wellness exam with your primary physician. We wouldn’t think of driving a car without regular maintenance, but we sometimes neglect our physical health. During Annual Conference, we are offering the ProCheck health screening—a comprehensive profile of medical tests that screens for a variety of health conditions. It’s FREE to HealthFlex members! ProCheck provides vital information to share with your doctor during an annual wellness exam.
