Earn a wellness incentive when you visit your primary care provider (PCP) for a wellness exam. It’s as simple as that.
Not many of us have perfect health habits, but you can get rewarded for what you’re doing right (and save money!) with the Albertsons Companies wellness incentive program. By getting an annual wellness check, you and your covered family members can pay less each week for your benefits coverage and save that extra money to put towards your other goals – like purchasing that new juicer!
NOTE: For 2023, Jewel Local 881 associates will only be eligible for the wellness incentive if enrolled in the bargained Jewel 881 PPO Plan. You will not be eligible for the incentive if you enroll in a different medical plan option, so consider carefully which plan to enroll in during Open Enrollment November 1-11 or during your eligibility period.
What You Need to Do
Simply visit your primary care provider (PCP) for a wellness exam. There is no form to complete. You will become eligible for the incentive when the claim for your visit is processed by Blue Cross of Idaho (this may take up to six weeks).
If you don’t have a doctor, this is a great time to find an in-network doctor and establish a relationship. Your preventive care visit is covered at no cost to you if it is billed as a wellness visit by your in- network PCP.
You may also schedule your health screening at one of our company-owned pharmacies, if available in your area.
Scheduling Your Screening
To schedule a screening with a local Jewel-Osco pharmacist, visit jewelosco.com/wellconnected, or use your smart phone to scan the QR Code (found at the bottom of this letter).
Complete your wellness requirements by December 17, 2022, to get your incentive for the entire 2023 plan year. Because there may be a delay in your savings showing in your paycheck, you will be credited for any weeks missed once your wellness requirements are applied to your account.
If you complete the requirements after December 17, 2022, we will apply the weekly discount as soon as possible.
If you have questions, contact Blue Cross of Idaho at 855-230-6859 or email email@example.com.
