Simple Steps to Living
Well Together Program

Earn up to $400 in Wellness Incentives

The wellness rewards you earn will be applied as Wellness Incentive Fund Account credits to help reimburse you for Eligible Medical Expenses like your deductible, coinsurance, and copayments, as defined by IRS Code Section 213(d). You can obtain each reward once per calendar year.

Health Risk Assessment

$75 Reward

An HRA is a health questionnaire that evaluates your health and quality of life. You share information about your health habits and history. The HRA results provide a snapshot of your current health status and help identify personal health goals.

Physical Exam and Biometric Screening

$100 Reward

An annual physical exam can determine the general status of your health and detect health conditions early. A biometric screening assesses your overall health and measures physical attributes – blood pressure, glucose levels, cholesterol levels, height, weight, body mass index, and aerobic fitness. These standard exams can identify potential health risks and underlying medical issues.

Note: To earn the $100 wellness reward, you must complete a Physical Exam & Biometric Screening and you must pass 3 out of 5 metabolic syndrome criteria as part of your screening (HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, waist circumference, and glucose).

If you do not pass the 3 out of 5, you can still earn the $100 wellness reward after you complete one of the following wellness programs – Mediterranean Wellness, Lifestyle and Condition Health Coaching, or Dietary & Nutritional Counseling.

Testimonials

I want to thank AFSPA for offering Hinge Health as part of my health plan. I've had extreme shoulder pain the past 2 years which required me to get cortisone shots. Since beginning my Hinge Health program I've seen a significant improvement in my mobility and and I am experiencing a lot less pain. This is the perfect tool for me. I don't like going to to physical therapy so hinge Health is perfect. I am now getting better sleep and not missing work as much as I was. I can't wait to start working on my back pain with Hinge Health. I am so grateful AFSPA offers this program.

I wanted to share feedback for the Livongo Blood Pressure Program. Since I signed up last month, it has helped me monitor my health and develop better lifestyle decisions. I catch spikes in my blood pressure that I can address with my doctor immediately. Livongo gave me the incentive to change my dietary habits as well. I eat better foods , exercise more and feel better overall. I am glad FSBP offers this great program.
