It’s easier than you think to answer the call

There are simple things you can do to help you be your best and thrive in all ways.

If you aren’t participating in Call to Health* because you think it will require too much time and effort to reach 1,000 points, think again. It’s easier than you may realize to answer the call. For starters, you earn 700 points just for completing these two required challenges:

  • Take the Well-Being Assessment. The Well-Being Assessment takes about 15 minutes to complete and counts for 300 points. Completing it can help you understand the four dimensions of wholeness — spiritual, health, financial, and vocational — and track your progress toward your goals in each area. The information you provide is confidential and secure, and you’ll see your results, including your top three strengths and top three areas of opportunity, immediately. To take the assessment, log on to the Call to Health website and click on Take Your Assessment under My Plan on the homepage.
  • Record your preventive exam. You’ll get 400 points when you record the date of your preventive exam and your physician’s name at the Call to Health website. A preventive exam is required annually if you’re 50 or older; every 24 months if you’re under 50. If you are under 50 and had a physical last year, simply enter the date of the visit and the name of your physician where prompted to receive your points for meeting this requirement.

In addition to completing the required challenges, select and complete optional challenges that together total at least 300 points, and you’ll qualify for reduced medical deductibles in 2020. Point values for optional challenges range from 7 points per week for Daily Prayer to 300 points for completing an Ignite Your Life coaching program.

Bottom line? There are simple things you can do to help you be your best and thrive in all ways. And as you live the call, you may even find that what started out as a way to earn reduced deductibles will change your life.
