Health Quotient deadline draws near


All HealthFlex participants are urged to take the HealthQuotient (HQ). The online assessment is a vital first step in self-care. The General Board of Pension and Helath Benefits believes this is a critical component to wellness.

This year, for the first time, there will be a financial penalty for those who do not complete the HQ. If participants (AND spouses, if a spouse is covered) do not take the HealthQuotient by August 31, 2010, their deductibles will INCREASE an additional $250 for individuals and $500 for family in 2011 ABOVE the current $750 for individuals and $1,500 for families.
In order to take the HQ: 

  • go to the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits web site at
  • click on “HeathFlex/WebMD” on the right side
  • log in or register as a new user. Again, please note that both the participant and spouse (if a spouse is covered) must sign in separately and take the HQ. 
  • complete the HealthQuotient.

It takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Please note, participants on Medicare will not be effected.
