FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Healthy U? Please refer to the Healthy U FAQ

How do I enroll in Healthy U? During open enrollment, check the box to opt-in to Healthy U.

Can I still enroll in Healthy U if I've already completed open enrollment? Yes.  Please email healthyut@utoledo.edu to manually opt-in to Healthy U.

Is there a fee to participate in Healthy U? No.  Healthy U is a free and voluntary program.

How do I sign up for the onsite health screening? Every year during open enrollment, you will receive an email with a link to schedule your health screening.  Screenings are offered from October through November on Health Science Campus and Main Campus.

Can I have my screening completed by my personal physician? Yes! If you complete an annual physical in which your cholesterol, glucose, height, weight and blood pressure are measured, this can substitute the onsite health screening offered by Healthy U.  However, you must complete and submit the physician packet to make sure your screening is recorded for credit. 

I already completed my annual physical with my physician and didn't have the physician packet.  How do I receive credit for my physical? Download/print the physician packet.  Submit this packet to your physician office and request them to complete the necessary information.  If you have difficulty with completing this step, please email healthyut@utoledo.edu to discuss alternatives. 

Can I report my annual physical as an elective wellness action if I am using it as my health screening? No.  Your annual physical must either be an elective wellness action OR the health screening. 

What if I am unable to complete a screening due to a health condition, such as pregnancy? We can offer an exception for the screening for certain medical conditions.  Please email healthyut@utoledo.edu with your request for exception.

How do I record my wellness actions? Complete the web form. All wellness actions are self-reported, and the University will not collect any documentation as a part of the reporting process.  Some actions may require you to enter the date of completion.  All actions must be self-reported by November 29, 2019, for you to be eligible for the 2020 incentive. The form can only be submitted once per employee.  Please wait until you have completed all 5 wellness actions before completing and submitting the form.  

If my family members are covered under my medical benefit, do they have to self-report wellness actions? No; only the UToledo employee has to participate, and has the ability to earn the additional family incentive.

If I repeat a wellness action, will it count as more than 1 toward my additional 5 actions? No; you may only self-report a wellness action only on an annual basis.

Will my results from my health screening or any other wellness action be kept by the University? No.  This program is voluntary. No health records are maintained by the University.

If I don’t participate in the Blue Consumer Driven Health Plan (CDHP), can I receive the wellness incentive? No. The wellness incentive is only available for employees that elect the Blue Medical CDHP plan with the Health Savings Account (HSA).  The additional incentive contribution will only be added to a HSA, not a FSA.
