Preventive Care Incentive Program

Exciting New 2020 Preventive Care Incentive Program for Cigna Medical Plan Participants!

Due to issues related to COVID-19 and the University’s current challenging financial situation, we must take cost-cutting measures, however we are delighted to announce a special Preventive Care Incentive Program for the 2020 calendar year.

The Preventive Care Incentive Program is designed to encourage you, and your spouse or registered domestic partner, if applicable, to have an annual routine preventive care physical examination. 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.

This year, you may win one of 157 Trader Joe's gift cards, valued from $100 - $500!  Cigna medical plan participants who complete a routine physical exam, from January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020 (and submit the Cigna Explanation of Benefits [EOB] plus the Preventive Care Incentive Program Participation Form to the University Benefits office), will be entered into a raffle for one of the many Trader Joe’s gift cards!

The cards will be raffled as follows:

12 grand prize winners will each receive a gift card in the amount of $500

20 winners will each receive a gift card in the amount of $300

125 winners will each receive a gift card in the amount of $100

Cigna participants who have individual coverage will be awarded one (1) raffle entry upon completion of the annual routine physical examination and submission of the Cigna EOB and Preventive Care Incentive Program Participation Form (PDF).

Cigna participants who also cover a spouse or registered domestic partner will be awarded two (2) raffle entries if both complete the annual routine physical examination and submit the EOB and Preventive Care Incentive Program Participation Form (PDF). (If only one person completes the exam, then only one (1) raffle entry will be awarded.)

The drawing will be held in January 2021. Look for more details in the coming months.

As always, we recommend that you reach out to your primary care physician for guidance concerning your particular health situation and the feasibility of having a routine physical exam in 2020, either in-person or via telemedicine (if available).
