How will deployment for active military service impact my eligibility for a premium discount on health care in the plan year following deployment?
If you continue on the state employee health plans during your or your spouse’s military deployment, you and your spouse, if applicable, will need to complete one of the requirements the same as active employees.  However, an individual deployed on active duty for 6 consecutive weeks or longer will be given credit for either 10,000 steps or 45 minutes of physical activity for each day that individual is deployed on active duty.

If you waive the State’s health coverage to go on Tricare during a plan year in which you or your spouse are deployed on active duty, you can still earn the incentive by providing documentation using a tracking device that you completed one of the following during the incentive period, which is 1/1/2019-09/30/2019 for the 2020 plan year:

An individual deployed on active duty for 6 consecutive weeks or longer will be given credit for either 10,000 steps or 45 minutes of physical activity for each day the individual is deployed on active duty.

Military orders showing the dates of your/your spouse’s deployment must be submitted before activity credit can be awarded for those dates. If credit for deployment dates does not cover the full activity requirement for eligibility, then deployed spouse must also provide evidence of required activity during other quarters. Submission of all documentation is required on the same schedule as required by active employees to be eligible for a premium incentive in the next plan year.

Evidence of required activity performed by the non-deployed spouse during the designated calendar quarters must be submitted on the same schedule as required by active employees to be eligible for a premium incentive in the next plan year.

Do I have to use a fitness tracker for the ActiveHealth activities?
If you are intending to complete the 10,000 steps at least 75 days, 2 of 3 quarters or the 45 minutes of physical activity 3 days a week for 11 weeks at least 2 of 3 quarters, you will need to have a fitness device connected to the ActiveHealth platform.

Will I be provided with a fitness tracker?
