Frequently Asked Questions about StayWell

Program Update

During the It’s Your Choice 2018 open enrollment period, Employee Trust Funds (ETF) had communicated plans to move the program incentive from a gift card to a State Group Health premium reduction in 2019 for active state employees. It has been determined this transition will not occur for 2019, and Well Wisconsin program participation in 2018 will NOT affect premium rates in 2019. Participants will still receive the $150 gift card upon completion of the program steps in 2018 (program requirements must again be completed in 2019 to receive the 2019 incentive reward).

Incentive Program Requirements

Your Three Steps:

  1. STEP 1: Submit your 2018 health screening results to StayWell.**

    You may complete your health screening by attending an on-site event at UWM, or at another facility, or by submitting the Health Care Provider Form. (see below)

    On-site health screenings at UWM:

    • July 25, 2018, Union Ballroom, 8:00 A.M.–12:00 P.M.
    • August 7, 2018, Union Ballroom, 8:00 A.M.–3:00 P.M.
    • Watch for additional dates to come.

    A health screening takes approximately 20 minutes to complete, and includes measurements for Blood Pressure, Body Mass Index (BMI), Cholesterol HDL, LDL and Total, Triglycerides, and Glucose. Fasting is not required, but recommended for more accurate results. Screening completion will be securely uploaded to the StayWell wellness portal within two business days. Your results will be automatically uploaded to your personal account profile within 10 business days.

    Please Note: Registration is required to secure your on-site screening appointment time. Log in to your StayWell Health Portal to register for your appointment.

    For assistance with the StayWell portal, or registration, please contact StayWell at 1-800-821-6591, wellwisconsin@staywell.com, or StayWell online help.

    Alternative to the On-site Screening

    As part of your routine annual preventive exam, you may have your physician complete StayWell’s health screening form, and submit this directly to StayWell before the deadline to complete your Health Screening requirement. See your StayWell Health Portal for the form and more information.

  2. STEP 2: Take the 10-minute StayWell on-line health assessment.
  3. STEP 3: (New for 2018) Complete one well-being activity through StayWell.

    Activities Include:

    • Million Steps Challenge
    • 21 Day Meditation Experience
    • Self-Directed Coaching
    • Daily Dash
    • Health Coaching
    • Disease Management Coaching
