Exchange associates and retirees who participate in the health plan and their covered family members can earn health incentive credits by taking healthy actions. If you have single coverage, that means up to $250 a year; with family coverage, earn up to $600 a year.
This is great news if you have planned medical expenses or unexpected out-of-pocket costs.
In the DoD Health Plan through Aetna, health incentive credits are easy to earn. If you don’t expect to have any medical bills, earn them anyway, because unused credits roll over for up to three times into each new year.
And yes – Aetna will use the credits on claims for anyone you cover on your Aetna plan.
First, you and your covered spouse must complete the health assessment to earn credits. The questionnaire covers a wide range of health topics, and it takes just 15 minutes to complete.
Get started now by logging onto Aetna Navigator and clicking on “Complete your Assessment” under “Stay Healthy.”
