Calendar Year 2018 Wellness Program Update

Category: Group Insurance

The prolonged litigation affecting the State of Tennessee wellness program has ended. However, because of the time it takes to complete the contract award process and implement the contract, we will be unable to operate a wellness program in 2018. What that means for insurance members is that we will not have any wellness services in 2018. This includes the cash incentive that state and higher education members could earn for completing wellness activities. As soon as we have a target start date for the 2019 program, we will share that information. Please not that this will not affect 2018 premiums because the wellness program and the plan selection are unrelated.
