Whether you are living a healthy, active lifestyle, or looking to improve your health and well-being, there are ways to earn cash for your good habits as part of your SchoolCare Health Benefits plan. The Good For You! Well-Being Program rewards you for achieving your goals and maintaining your health with incentives up to $800 for subscribers or $400 for covered spouses each year. There is still time to earn your max incentive before the end of the plan year, even if you haven’t gotten started yet.

Here’s how.

Start with your health assessment.

All SchoolCare subscribers and covered spouses who wish to earn their incentive must complete the annual Cigna Health Assessment. This is an online assessment that takes just 10-15 minutes to complete. It asks basic questions about your current health and your health history. There is a section that asks for your recent biometric numbers, but if you do not know the answer, you can skip them.

Once your health assessment is complete your incentives will be unlocked.

Take your health assessment by logging into your myCigna account and clicking on “Health Assessment” under the “Wellness” tab.

If you haven’t set up your myCigna account, register today. Logging in to myCigna allows you to see all your claims, find well-being program incentives, download a copy of your ID card, search for doctors, price medications and more!

Let your preventive care earn for you (up to $300)

To earn for your preventive care, all you need to do is attend your annual preventive care appointments. When your claims process, your incentives will automatically be reflected in your myCigna account within 10 business days. Earn $75 for each incentive, up to four per year.

  • Physical exam
  • OB/GYN exam
  • Prostate screening
  • Cervical cancer screening
  • Colon cancer screening
  • Mammogram
  • Flu shot

Obtain your biometrics ($150)

Biometric screenings are short health exams that include bloodwork, blood pressure and body measurements, which is key data to reduce health risks and improve overall well-being. Completing your biometrics earns you a $150 incentive annually. There are three ways to obtain/document your biometrics.

  • Physician-ordered at Quest or Labcorp
  • Physician-ordered at a different facility, reported on a physician lab form that you must submit to Cigna
  • Self-ordered through a Quest Patient Service Center

Learn more about these options here. Your biometrics incentive will be reflected within 10 days of your visit/receipt of lab form.

Self-report a variety of healthy activities (Up to $425)

Self-reporting healthy events may sound like a cumbersome task, but it’s quite easy.

  1. Log in to your myCigna account
  2. Click on the “Wellness” tab
  3. Click on “View all incentives” under the Incentives Spotlight
  4. Expand the list of incentives and scroll down to find the current quarter’s healthy event box
  5. Choose the date and check the box to certify you’ve completed the activity
  6. Click the “Complete Goal” button

You earn $25 per healthy event, up to three per quarter. And you can save time by logging in just once per quarter to report your events. Healthy events can be a broad range of things from playing a sport, running a road race, meditating, journaling, volunteering, speaking with a nutrition counselor, taking a CPR class and more!

Other self-reported options include reporting use of your Employee Assistance Program for a $25 incentive up to three times per year, and reporting an annual dental or eye exam for $25 each.

Use Apps and Activities to track healthy habits (up to $400)

Log activities you are already doing  i.e. eating healthy meals, getting exercise, meeting your sleep goal, meditating and more, or set health goals for improving in these areas using Apps & Activities. You can download the Apps & Activities app to your smart phone and login using your myCigna credentials, or navigate to it under the Wellness menu on your computer.

Using Apps & Activities you can manually track your goals or, connect your fitness tracker to automatically track exercise, step or sleep goals. Earn stars for completing your activities and earn $50 for every 20 stars you earn, up to 8 times per year.

If you are manually tracking, log-in after completing a goal each day, or, sign in once a week and log all your completions for the week at once. Please note, the week resets on Monday, so you will need to sign in before 11:59 p.m. on Sundays to complete your weekly goals. You cannot go in and track previous weeks.

Watch this 90-second video to see how to use Apps and Activities on your computer or phone.
