On-Campus, Canceled Programming:

Biometric Health Screenings – canceled through April 30, 2020

For employees and spouses enrolled in an Ohio State medical plan and not currently receiving the medical plan premium credit, an alternative solution has been created. Employees and spouses should reach out to the Your Plan for Health (YP4H) team at yp4h@osu.edu to learn about an alternative. YP4H will work with the employee or spouse to make sure they do not miss premium credits they would have otherwise earned due to the cancellation of screenings.

  • In-person events have been converted to web-based programming. Participants will be notified directly of changes.
