Don’t miss out on your $100 wellness incentive.  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 the 2013 Benefit Plan year. Healthy for Life will offer health screenings at the Health Science building on Tuesday, March 12, and at the Student Success Center on Wednesday, March 13 from 8 a.m.-12 p.m.

2. Complete a health screening, which includes cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, height and weight evaluations. You can schedule a free on campus screening or visit your health care provider.

3. Track 240 minutes of everyday activity in any calendar month.
