Complete a WebMD Healthy U Wellness Profile for 30 Points(required):
Go to www.highmarkblueshield.com, and log in with your user ID and password. Click on the “Wellness Profile WebMD” link and complete the questionnaire. The Wellness Profile is a comprehensive survey that covers all aspects of your health. When you have completed the on-line Wellness Profile, you will receive an immediate on-line report with program recommendations that address your specific needs. Both the employee and the covered spouse/same-sex domestic partner must complete a Wellness Profile. This step is an annual requirement and must be completed (even if you completed a wellness profile in an earlier Phase of Healthy U), and you are awarded 30 points towards the 70 point minimum requirement when it’s completed.
