Call to Health

A new year of Call to Health runs October 1, 2016, through November 10, 2017. Now is the time to begin working on your game plan for well-being in the year ahead.

As in previous years, Benefits Plan members can earn points toward reduced medical deductibles by completing required and optional challenges.

New to Call to Health is the opportunity to win gift cards. Any member who earns at least 2,000 points in Call to Health will receive a $100 Amazon gift card in recognition of the achievement. Covered spouses who earn 1,000 or more points will also receive a $100 Amazon gift card.

Call to Health has always emphasized the physical and emotional aspects of health, especially the preventive measures that can lead to early detection of disease. In the year ahead, Call to Health will expand into other areas essential to wholeness: spiritual, financial, and vocational well-being.

While the Call to Health website is being refreshed (October 1–31), you can still work toward your well-being goals and earn points toward reduced medical deductibles for 2018. When reopens in November, you will be able to record any preventive visits you had in October, take the annual well-being assessment, and explore challenges across the enhanced areas of wellness. 

Look for information coming soon about the various challenges and how you can answer Call to Health and earn reduced deductibles for 2018. As in past years, participants must complete a preventive exam and well-being assessment (for those under age 50, the preventive exam requirement is every two years). In addition, many other challenges — some familiar, some new — will be made available throughout the year to help participants focus on well-being and earn points.

Why Call to Health?

We are each called to wholeness — to live life abundantly, as God intends. Our health is central to this call; so, too, are our spiritual, financial, and vocational gifts. By caring for ourselves we are better able to serve others and share God’s love with the world.

Who May Participate?

Call to Health is available to members with medical coverage through the Highmark PPO and EPO (and the Anthem HMO through 2016).

Call to Health is not available to members enrolled in Triple-S, Cigna Global Health Benefits (GeoBlue, effective January 1, 2017), or the Medicare Supplement Plan.
