PEIA is completing Phase 2 of the Healthy Tomorrows initiative for active employees and non-Medicare retirees in the PEIA PPB Plans.
- Phase 2 – Policyholders must have a primary care provider named (if you named one last year you have met this requirement), and report your blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol and waist circumference to PEIA on the Healthy Tomorrows Reporting Form before the end of Open Enrollment (May 15, 2016). A personalized Healthy Tomorrows Reporting Form was recently mailed to those who had not reported their Healthy Tomorrows values. Complete that form or find a blank copy on PEIA’s webpage at www.wvpeia.com click on “I want to … Find a Form or Document. The form requires a signature of your healthcare provider or his/her representative.
- Phase 3 Policyholders must have your blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol within an acceptable range or have a physician’s certification that those numbers cannot be met. The Phase 3 reporting form is at the back of the Shopper’s Guide. It can be used to report blood pressure, glucose, cholestrol, and waist circumference results from April 2, 2016 to May 15, 2017.
- In any year that you do not comply with the Healthy Tomorrows initiative, you will face an additional $500 medical deductible.
NOTE: PEIA covers an annual physical for members at no cost. Take the Adult Annual Physical and Screening Examination Form on page 48 to your doctor.
