Wellness Incentive Program
The wellness incentive program is designed to help you improve your health and wellness, increase workplace wellness, and cultivate a culture of health.
Please note that you must complete the Personal Health Profile (PHP) in order to receive payouts for your participation in the wellness incentive program. The PHP is a required step in this program.
Full-time and part-time benefits-eligible faculty and professional staff enrolled in a Drexel medical plan, or full-time employees who waive medical coverage, will be eligible to earn up to $400 during this annual program, which runs from Jan. 1 to Nov. 30.
Drexel employees who are covered under a Drexel partner or spouse's health insurance plan will be considered "spouses" in this program and will be eligible for the $250 spouse incentive, not the $400 employee incentive. Drexel employees who are married to another Drexel employee must maintain separate health insurance plans provided by Drexel for both spouses to be eligible for the full $400 employee wellness benefit.
Spouses and domestic partners who receive medical insurance through Drexel, or spouses and domestic partners of employees who waive medical coverage, are also invited to participate in the Wellness Incentive Program. Eligible partners will be able to earn up to $250, paid via the employee’s paycheck from Jan. 1 to Nov. 30.
Eligible partners will need to be listed as dependents in the benefit enrollment system, even if they are not participating in any health benefits, in order participate in the Wellness Incentive Program. This will allow them to have access to their own secure portal to complete activities, and, like employees, will also have to complete a Personal Health Profile before any incentive payouts are processed.
The incentive program starts Jan. 1 and ends Nov. 30, annually.
For every point you earn, you will receive $1 in your paycheck, up to $400 total. Please note that you will not receive any payouts in your paycheck until the month after you complete the Personal Health Profile (PHP). The PHP is a required step for payout of any points earned. If you do not complete your PHP, you will not be paid.
For every point they earn, spouses and domestic partners will receive $1 in the employee's paycheck, up to $250 total. Any earnings made by spouses and domestic partners will appear as a separate line item from the employee's wellness pay, in order to avoid confusion. Please note that you will not receive any payouts in your paycheck for your spouse or domestic partner until the month after they complete their PHP. The PHP is a required step for payout of any points earned. If your spouse or domestic partner does not complete their PHP, they will not be paid.
The first disbursement of funds will occur in the February pay period. Non-exempt employees will be credited once per month in the last paycheck for that calendar month. In general, money earned during one month will appear in the next month's paycheck. There may be a 6-week delay in the payment of points for onsite Drexel wellness activities. After an employee is terminated from Drexel University, we are unable to process payment for earned wellness points.
To start earning your credit, you will need to log in to healthadvocate.com/drexel and complete your required Personal Health Profile. Once this has been completed, you can earn credit for activities offered in the portal or for on-campus/webinar events.
Eligible spouses and partners can log in to healthadvocate.com/drexel and complete their required Personal Health Profile. Once this has been completed, they can earn a credit for any of the activities offered in the portal.
There are many possible ways to earn 400 points. The PDFs below will show you the available possibilities.
