ACTION REQUIRED TO RETAIN LOWER HEALTH INSURANCE PREMIUMS (Posted 1/15/13)
In an effort to reduce health care expenses for all employees enrolled in the State of Tennessee’s Group Insurance Program, including University of Tennessee employees, the State restructured their fees and offerings in 2011. To receive lower premiums, copays, deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums, employees had to promise to complete various requirements in an effort to stay healthy and to slow or stop the progression of disease among those currently living with chronic illnesses.
For 2013, employees wishing to retain the lower costs associated with the Partnership Promise, you need to complete a Well-Being Assessment, engage in one wellness activity and keep your contact information current. The Assessment needs to be completed by March 15. All employees should have already received information from the State Group Insurance program regarding these requirements. If you still have questions, please contact your campus/institute payroll office.
