2016 Health Screening Campaign
Earn up to a $150 medical premium discount OR HSA contribution by completing the Personal Health Assessment (PHA) and health screening, plus up to an additional $200 in VISA Gift Cards (can be used anywhere VISA is accepted) by earning NOVAfit! points through wellness activities. The medical premium discount or HSA contribution will be applied towards your 2016-2017 benefits plan year which runs from June 1, 2016 through May 31, 2017.
Please be advised that the medical premium discount OR HSA contribution will only be applied if you are enrolled in medical coverage through Villanova University. You are still encouraged to complete the PHA and health screening even if you are not enrolled in a medical plan for the 2016-2017 year because it provides a valuable picture of your current health and quality of life as well as action-oriented tips to work towards optimal health and wellness. In addition, you could still participate to receive the VISA Gift Cards.
Spouses enrolled in University medical benefits also have the ability to earn a medical premium discount OR HSA contribution of $75 if he/she completes the PHA. Upon completion, eligible spouses can also obtain up to $200 in VISA Gift Cards by earning applicable NOVAfit! points. Please be advised that the PHA and incentives only applies to spouses who are currently enrolled in one of the University medical plans.
Total incentive amounts could be as high as:
Employee: $150 medical premium discount OR HSA contribution and $200 in VISA Gift Cards
Spouse: $75 medical premium discount OR HSA contribution and $200 in VISA Gift Cards
Employee and spouse: $225 medical premium discount OR HSA contribution and $400 in VISA Gift Cards
It is important to note that faculty and staff not enrolled in the University medical plans can still qualify for the VISA gift card program by completing the PHA and Health Screening campaign and then obtaining the applicable NOVAfit! points. Spouses must be enrolled in the University medical plans and complete the PHA to qualify.
Please be advised that the VISA Gift Cards will be considered taxable income and will be reported through payroll.
If you are unable to earn these incentive items because of a health reason, please complete the other available incentive items in order to earn your reward and feel free to contact HR with any questions and or concerns.
Beginning on December 8, 2015, you will have access to complete a personal health assessment (PHA) and schedule a health screening appointment. Faculty/staff and spouses must complete the applicable PHA and/or health screening by March 31, 2016, in order to qualify for the medical premium discount OR HSA contribution toward your 2016-2017 health benefits (medical plan enrolled faculty and staff only). NOVAfit! points program will run continuously throughout the year.
On-Campus Health Screenings
Screenings will be held on campus January 19-29 in Dougherty Hall, West Lounge. To register for a screening and to take the PHA, visit the wellness portal.
How do I complete the PHA and Health Screening?
For faculty and staff: It’s simple: complete the PHA and either register for a health screening appointment on campus via the NOVAfit! wellness portal or have your physician submit the physician affidavit form.
For spouses: Spouses that are already registered can log into the NOVAfit! wellness portal. Spouses that do not have an account already will need to self register by clicking here and selecting the Get Started link under New to NOVAfit! If both spouses are Villanova employees, the incentive will depend on how the medical benefits are elected. If both employees elect benefits separately, then each will need to complete the PHA and health screening. If the medical benefits are elected jointly, the employee carrying the coverage would need to complete the PHA and health screening, and the spouse would just complete the PHA. Please note: Spouses are not required to participate in the health screenings to be eligible for the $75 premium reduction.
