NEW PROGRAM – VITALS SMARTSHOPPER
Employees and their families who are enrolled in the OneBeacon medical plan now have access to Vitals SmartShopper. This program helps participants save money on their medical expenses and earn an incentive for doing so. When your physician recommends one of the included medical procedures, SmartShopper will help you find a cost effective location to have it done.
Here’s how SmartShopper works:
There are more than 50 procedures you can earn cash for with SmartShopper, including CT Scans and MRIs, screenings such as mammograms and even surgeries, including knee surgeries. And the cash rewards you can earn can vary from $50 to $500, depending on the procedure and where you have it. A complete list of services can be found here.
The first time you access the SmartShopper website you will need to register for an account. If you select one of the cost effective locations and have your service completed at that location, you will receive the associated incentive via check once the claim has been processed.
INCENTIVE FUNDING UPDATE
Employees and spouses who are enrolled in the OneBeacon medical plans for 2019 are each eligible to earn incentive funding of $300 into their HRA or HSA for completing the funding requirements between January 1 and November 30, 2019. The deadline for completing the preventative care exam and submitting the online health assessment is November 30th for 2019.
NEW ONLINE HEALTH ASSESSMENT
For 2019, BCBS has transitioned to a new online health assessment through Sharecare. You can access the assessment by logging onto bluecrossmnonline.com. Go to the wellness tab and then you will find the “Real Age” assessment under the Sharecare section. This is the new assessment that needs to be completed in order to receive incentive funding.
