Health and Wellness

Health Survey:  The Health Survey is open on the beBetter Health website.  The survey must be completed by anyone who wishes to take advantage of the beBetter Health Program.  The assessment establishes a baseline for the employee to measure goals and accomplishments throughout the year.  Upon completion employees receive 100 points.  I have attached the Quick Start Guide to assist new participants in creating your accounts.

 

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:   Employees and spouses who completed the Wellness Screenings on campus in September 2016 or sent information via their PCP are required to complete the Health Survey on the beBetter Health site by February 3, 2017  in order to maintain the Wellness Discount of $25.00 per participant per month.  If you do not complete the Health Survey by this date, your premium discount will be reduced to $12.50 per month.  Go to www.bebetterhealth.net.  For login assistance:  Please call 866-900-5325, Monday – Friday, 9:30am-6:30pm or email:  support@bebetter.net. You can also call me for assistance at ext. 7224.
