What is the deadline to qualify for the 2021 Premium Discount?
September 30, 2020 is the deadline to complete activities for the premium discount.

How do I get started on the premium discount?

Start Tracking your Physical Activity
  • Log in to the ActiveHealth portal and connect your device in the Tracker section on the homepage. Only data from a device connected to your ActiveHealth portal will count towards the completion of this activity. It is important to connect your device right away because ActiveHealth only gets data starting with the date you connect your device.

Can I do a combination of the 3 activities to qualify for the premium discount?
No. To earn the premium discount you must fully complete one of the activities. You can do additional activities for your personal benefit.

Can smokers qualify for the premium discount?
For 2021, employees using tobacco can qualify for the premium discount as long as they meet all eligibility and qualification requirements.

How do I know if I have completed a premium discount activity?
The Rewards Center in the ActiveHealth portal shows your progress on all ActiveHealth incentives, including the premium discount.

If I complete a designated activity for the premium discount but my spouse does not, will I still receive a premium discount?
No, both employees and covered spouses enrolled in medical coverage must each fully complete one premium discount activity by the deadline to earn the premium discount.

Does my spouse have to complete the same activity as me to be eligible for the premium discount?
No, employees and covered spouses can each individually complete any of the three designated premium discount activities.

How does removing a spouse from my plan in 2020 change what I need to do to ensure I qualify for the premium discount for 2021?
The premium discount requirements are based on your coverage level on September 30, 2020. If your spouse is shown as covered in ActiveHealth on that date, both you and your covered spouse must complete one of the activities. If your spouse no longer shows as covered in ActiveHealth on that date, only the employee must complete one of the activities. When deciding whether your spouse needs to complete a premium discount activity, be sure to account for up to three weeks of processing time from the date when State Personnel is able to enter your family status change to the date your spouse is removed in ActiveHealth’s system.

How does adding a spouse to my plan in 2020 change what I need to do to ensure I qualify for the premium discount for 2021?
Adding a spouse with a qualifying event date between 1/1/20 and 6/30/20:
  • The premium discount requirements are based on your coverage level on September 30, 2020.  Your spouse must complete one of the premium discount activities by September 30, 2020 to earn the premium discount in 2021.
Adding a spouse with a qualifying event date between 7/1/20 and 9/30/20:
  • Based on the timing of this change in coverage, your spouse will not to be able to complete one of the premium discount activities. Your spouse is exempt from completing a premium discount activity; however, the employee must still complete a premium discount activity by September 30, 2020 to qualify for the 2021 Premium Discount.

If I change my coverage from family to single for 2021, do I still get the premium discount earned by my spouse?
Earning the premium discount is based on your coverage level as of September 30, 2020. All employees that earn the 2021 Premium Discount are able to select the discounted rate for the plan they choose to enroll in for 2021, single or family coverage, regardless how the discount was earned.

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 30 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 the following during the incentive period, which is 1/1/2020-09/30/2020 for the 2021 plan year:
  • Meet physical activity goal of 10,000 daily steps or 30 minutes of physical activity through a synced device on at least 200 separate days.
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 for the remainder of the 200 days. 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 period must be submitted on the same schedule as required by active employees to be eligible for a premium incentive in the next plan year.
Why participate in health coaching?
Health coaching gives you access to qualified professionals that help you create a custom plan to meet your health goals.

You meet one on one with a coach, in person or over the phone. Your health coach will work with you to create a personalized plan. Health coaching sessions take an average of 20 to 30 minutes, and are scheduled every two to four weeks depending on the individual’s needs. Competing four health coaching sessions by September 30th is one way to earn the premium discount.

Will I be provided with a fitness tracker?
The State of Indiana will not be providing pedometers; however, there are free apps, like RunKeeper, that will sync with ActiveHealth.

When I connect my fitness tracker, will all of my steps for the year sync?
No. Only data from the day you connect your device and going forward will sync to your account.

What fitness trackers can I use?

If your specific device is not listed, but the device manufacturer is listed (e.g. Fitbit is listed, but not specifically the Fitbit Versa product), and you are able to connect that device to the manufacturer’s site/app, then it should connect to the ActiveHealth site.

I don’t see Apple Health listed in the ActiveHealth portal, can I use Apple Health?
Yes, the Apple Health app is compatible with ActiveHealth. The Apple Health app must be synced using the ActiveHealth mobile app.

Who should I contact if I have problems connecting or syncing my fitness device?

What is a health assessment?
A health assessment is a private and confidential questionnaire to check in on your general health and well-being. The questions are about topics like your weight, eating habits, physical activity, managing health conditions and stress.

Why is a health assessment important?
Taking the health assessment is a great way to see where you are and find areas that need some work. The Health Assessment provides an easy to understand report so you can take action. It is a great tool to help you set personal goals and if you participate in health coaching, gives the health coach a good picture of where you are today on your journey to better health.

Yes. Employees and spouses eligible for the ActiveHealth program earn a $50 e-gift card for completing a health assessment.

Do I need lab results to complete the health assessment?
No. You only need to know your height and weight.  If you know your blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol results, you can enter them to get a clearer picture of your overall health, but you do not need these measurements to complete your health assessment.

Can my spouse earn the $50 e-gift card for completing their health assessment?
Yes, both employees and spouses eligible for the ActiveHealth program can earn a $50 e-gift card for completing the Health Assessment.
What is a biometric screening?
A biometric screening collects key measurements like blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose levels, and body mass index (BMI) to give you a quick check on some key indicators of your current health. You will be asked some questions, weighed, measured, and a blood sample will be taken by finger stick or venipuncture depending on the biometric screening location you choose.

Why is a biometric screening important?
Completing a biometric screening is a quick way to check in on your current health. You get instant results and help understanding key measurements. A biometric screening is not a substitute for a regular check-up with a doctor, but is a great way to see if you are on track or need to follow up with your doctor between regular doctor visits.

Is there a reward for completing a biometric screening?
Yes. Employees and spouses eligible for the ActiveHealth program earn a $100 e-gift card for completing a biometric screening.

What is the deadline for earning the biometric screening reward?

Keep in mind the biometric screening reward is considered earned when the biometric screening results are visible in the ActiveHealth portal. Biometric screening data takes two to four weeks from the date of the screening to be loaded and visible in the ActiveHealth portal.

Can my employer see this information?
No. The biometric screening is private and confidential. Your privacy is important to State Personnel Department and to ActiveHealth Management.

How much does the biometric screening cost?
There is no charge for onsite screenings or partner clinic screenings for employees and spouses eligible for the ActiveHealth program. If you choose to see your doctor for a physical with lab work, normal health plan charges would apply to that visit

What biometric screening options are available to me?
  1. Go to an onsite screening at your work location or other nearby work location. Reserve your spot and see the list of screening dates and locations at investinyourhealthindiana.com/biometric-screening.
  2. Go to a partner screening site like CVS Minute Clinic or Quest Diagnostics. Print the voucher and locate providers in your ActiveHealth portal.
  3. See your doctor for a physical with lab work. Have your doctor complete the Provider Form. Submit the completed form by secure upload or fax.
How do the different onsite screening options work?
Onsite Screening: Schedule a screening appointment at investinyourhealthindiana.com/biometric-screening.  Make sure to fast for at least eight hours and bring a photo ID to your appointment. The screener will give you your results and submit them directly to ActiveHealth. Once the results are loaded in the ActiveHealth portal (may take up to two weeks), your e-gift reward will be available in the Rewards Center.

Partner Clinic Screening: Log in to your ActiveHealth portal to print a voucher with instructions on how to schedule your screening. Make sure to fast for at least eight hours and bring your voucher plus a photo ID to your appointment. The partner clinic will give you your results and submit them directly to ActiveHealth. Once the results are loaded in the ActiveHealth portal (may take up to two weeks), your e-gift reward will be available in the Rewards Center.

Physical with Lab Work: Call your doctor to schedule a physical with lab work. Make sure to mention the lab values that you will need which are listed on the Provider Form. Print the Provider Form, fill out Section 1 and bring the form with you to your appointment. Your doctor will complete Section 2. Submit the form to ActiveHealth by faxing or uploading it securely in the ActiveHealth portal. Once the results are loaded in the ActiveHealth portal (may take up to four weeks), your e-gift reward will be available in the Rewards Center. If you fax the form, keep your fax confirmation until the results are visible in the ActiveHealth portal.

Where can I find the onsite screening schedule?
You can find onsite screening locations and register for an event at: investinyourhealthindiana.com/biometric-screening. Biometric Screening events are scheduled at over 80 locations around the state from February through October.

Can my spouse attend an onsite screening?
Maybe. Most onsite screening events are open to spouses and shown as “Open” locations on the schedule. Some events are open only to employees due to security concerns. These sites are shown as “Closed” locations on the schedule. Your spouse can attend any open location screening event or try one of the other options – a partner clinic or see their doctor for a physical with lab work.

Why doesn’t my work location have an onsite screening event?
Due to limited screening staff, we can’t make it to every worksite. Screening locations are selected based on number of employees at the worksite while also representing most geographical areas. Employees and spouses can attend any open screening even if it is at a different work location or try one of the other options – a partner clinic or see a doctor for a physical with lab work.

What if I can’t attend an onsite screening event?
If you are unable to attend a screening event, you may schedule a screening at partner screening site like CVS Minute Clinic or Quest Diagnostics or visit your doctor for a physical with lab work.

How do I find a partner clinic?
Log in to the ActiveHealth portal to find a list of participating partner clinics.

Where is the Provider Form for the physical with lab work option?
