Rewards Overview - Your Plan for Health
During the program year (January through December), you have many opportunities to earn points every day, which can quickly accumulate to help you complete up to four incentive levels. As you advance through the incentive levels, you earn rewards.
If you’re enrolled in an Ohio State medical plan, you can earn premium credit, Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) credits and PulseCash. Employees who are eligible for Ohio State benefits but not enrolled in an Ohio State medical plan can earn PulseCash.
There are a few incentive programs available, depending on your medical benefit enrollment.
Enrolled faculty or staff can receive $20/month premium credit, or up to $30/month with an enrolled spouse/same-sex domestic partner, off of employee medical plan contributions by completing two steps: a Personal Health and Well-being Assessment (PHA) and completing a verified Biometric Screening.
In 2018, enrolled participants can each earn up to $250 in HRA credits. If you do not use all of your HRA credits in 2018, they will roll over to the following year and you can use them to pay for future health care costs while enrolled in Ohio State’s Faculty and Staff Health Plans.
New in 2018, participants can earn up to $100 in PulseCash. PulseCash is available for you to redeem for gift cards, health and wellness items in the Virgin Pulse online store, or to donate to designated charitable organizations.
