Excitement is in the air as Purdue’s new Healthy Boiler Incentive Program takes off. Get healthy and earn an extra $250 for your health savings account (HSA) or health reimbursement account (HRA). Let’s show our PNW pride and keep our community healthy at the same time.
Healthy Boiler is a system-wide wellness initiative for 2018. All PNW benefits-eligible employees including those who opt out of Purdue’s medical insurance may participate. Spouses may join if covered under a Purdue medical plan.
Each participant who signs up for the program at www.healthyboiler.com, and completes these three steps by Sept. 30, 2018 receives the following:
- Identifying a primary care provider earns $50.
- Completing an annual physical and biometrics earns $100.
- Participating in a minimum of two pre-approved wellness activities earns $100.
Register and track progress on the Healthy Boiler website
Employees and covered spouses need to register for and log activities via the Healthy Boiler website. Please note: Employees must register and log in first before spouses can access the site.
Once registered, the portal has requirements and links to complete steps under the “Earn” tab, and a “Track” tab to check progress. Finally, stay active and browse health and wellness tips by following the Healthy Boiler blog at healthyboilerpurdue.com.
Receiving earned incentives
Steps do not have to be completed in order, but payments will be distributed sequentially. For example, the $100 incentive for step 2 will not be distributed until step 1 is completed. Likewise, the $100 for step 3 will not be distributed until steps 1 and 2 are completed. Earnings will be disbursed quarterly in April, July and October for steps completed during those quarters.
For Purdue employees without an HSA medical plan or who have opted out of Purdue’s medical insurance, an HRA will be opened in order to receive earned incentives. However, it is advised to complete the steps as soon as possible, since unused HRA funds do expire at end of the calendar year.
