Preventive Care Incentive Program

Pace University

Preventive Care Incentive Program

 

The program is designed to encourage you, and your spouse or domestic partner if applicable, to have annual preventive care examinations. Statistics have shown that early detection and recognition of health risks and diseases can significantly improve your long-term health outlook; in cases of potentially deadly diseases, survival rates dramatically improve with early detection and treatment.

If you (and your spouse/domestic partner) are enrolled in the University's medical plan, you will receive a cash payment for having certain qualified preventive examinations from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014 (see below for a list of examinations). Most of these examinations are considered preventive care examinations and have no co-payments (some restriction may apply; the list provided may change periodically).

Employees are eligible for up to a $240 incentive reward payment if they (and their spouse/domestic partner, if covered by the Pace medical plan) have one, two or three preventive care examinations (based on your age) during the plan year (July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014). We've made the process even easier this year by NOT requiring your doctor to complete the form.

See the below Reimbursement Payment Table based on your coverage and age.

We hope this program not only provides added incentive to have routine preventive care examinations, but also strengthens the realtionship you have with your healthcare providers. Our hope is that you will consult with your healthcare provider in deciding which examinations are the most beneficial to your health.

If you have any questions regarding this program, please see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) or call University Benefits at extension 22828.

To participate in the 2013-2014 program, please return the completed the 2013-2014 form, along with the corresponding Explanation of Benefits (EOBs) to the University Benefits office via the University's Help Desk ticketing system ( Pcare@pace.edu ) on or before August 31, 2014.

And remember to Pace Yourself to Wellness!
