Shot earns points in Wellness Incentive program

Employees enrolled in the myOptions Health Plan (renamed Healthy Savings Plan for 2015) or the myChoice Health Plan (renamed PPO Plan for 2015) are eligible for a free flu vaccine. If an employee is not enrolled in a University of Missouri System health plan, the vaccine costs $20.

Clinics are operating at various campus sites from Oct. 1 to Nov. 6. See a complete list of MU vaccine sites here

Be sure to bring: 

• Your completed online flu shot consent form 

• Your Coventry ID card or, if not enrolled in a system medical plan, payment of $20 in cash or by check

As an incentive for employees to get healthy and participate in preventive care, such as by getting a flu shot, the system is offering up to $450 in a two-tiered program

Tier 1 “Educate Yourself”: Earn $150 for completing a wellness pledge, a personal health assessment and health screening.

Tier 2 “Invest in Yourself”: Earn an additional $300 by participating in healthful activities and behaviors and documenting your completion. Activities include getting a flu shot, walking, biking, remaining tobacco-free or completing tobacco cessation program, and taking an online wellness workshop. For more, click here.

The 2015 Wellness Incentive program kicks off Oct. 1, and a flu shot counts 50 points toward Tier 2.
