[The following was provided UM System Healthy for Life: T.E. Atkins UM Wellness Program.]

As part of your 2013 benefits, you are eligible for a wellness incentive. Healthy for Life is an incentive-based wellness program designed to help you earn your incentive and actively manage your health.

By completing a personal health assessment, health screening and 240 minutes of physical activity, primary subscribers to the UM health plans will receive $100 in a tax-favored account to use for medical expenses in 2013 Benefit Plan year. Healthy for Life has partnered with Cerner Health to offer your own confidential health record, and no individually-identifiable health information will be available to the University of Missouri.

  2. Complete your health screening, which includes cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, height and weight. You can schedule a FREE on campus screening or visit your health care provider (valid screenings are between June 1, 2012 and Apr. 30, 2013).
  3. Track 240 minutes of physical activity in any calendar month (between Oct. 15, 2012 and Apr. 30, 2013).
