Remind employees to practice self-care through Call to Health

October 08, 2020

Employers can encourage and support employees in answering the Call to Health by November 13.

COVID-19 continues to affect our lives every day, from variations in daily routines to life-altering changes. As a result, certain Call to Health* challenges, such as getting a preventive exam, may seem difficult to complete. At the same time, practicing self-care has never been more important to help us build resilience during these challenging times.

That’s why it’s important to encourage employees to answer the call. And, when they complete Level 1 by November 13, they can save on their 2021 medical deductibles as they work toward spiritual, health, financial, and vocational wholeness.

What you can do

Here are some things you can do to encourage employees to answer the call before time runs out:

  • Use the emails, flyers, and other materials in the Call to Health employer toolkit to engage employees with Call to Health.
  • Let them know that they don’t need to enter lab results from a physical exam to take the required Well-Being Assessment, which takes just 10 to 20 minutes to complete. And, you can assure them that the Well-Being Assessment and all aspects of their participation in Call to Health are completely confidential.
  • Share these four tips to help them answer the call, including different ways to complete the required preventive exam challenge (if they haven’t already done so).
  • Remind employees who haven’t yet registered that they will receive a $50 Tango gift card when they sign up and complete the Well-Being Assessment.
  • Finally, encourage employees to make Call to Health a daily practice, even after they’ve achieved one or two levels.

*Call to Health is available to employees and their spouses with medical coverage through the Board of Pensions; it is not available to members enrolled in Triple-S, GeoBlue, or the Medicare Supplement Plan.
