Medical Wellbeing Rate Qualification

The Benefits Committee continues to encourage the Xavier community to engage in healthy behavior and proactive health management. As part of the Know Your Numbers campaign, an annual preventative physical with a Primary Care Physician is now required to qualify for the medical wellbeing rate. This change is effective for calendar year 2020. Employees hired prior to July 1, 2019 must complete all requirements for the medical wellbeing rate by September 14, 2019. 

If you do not have a Primary Care Physician and you are currently enrolled in Xavier's medical insurance, Anthem's Find a Provider tool can assist in finding an in-network provider.

What is the medical wellbeing rate?

The medical wellbeing rate is a $50 per month ($600 per year) decrease from the standard rate.

Three requirements for the medical wellbeing rate:

  1. Visit Primary Care Physician for annual preventative physical. Documentation from the Primary Care Physician must be submitted to confirm the physical.
  2. Complete an online health risk assessment (this will be available for completion beginning in the summer).
  3. Complete a biometric screening. Free on-campus screenings will be offered in spring and late summer 2019. As well, in response to employee feedback, biometric screenings may now be conducted by Primary Care PhysiciansDocumentation from the Primary Care Physician must be submitted to confirm the screening. Only one biometric screening is required; on-campus OR with your Primary Care Physician.

All three medical wellbeing rate requirements must be completed by employees hired prior to July 1, 2019 between September 15, 2018 and September 14, 2019 for calendar year 2020. If you have already completed an annual preventative physical and/or biometric screening with your Primary Care Physician, please send the required documentation to your physician for completion.
