Time is running out - follow two easy steps for health care savings

If you carry HealthPartners insurance through the district, make sure to complete your health assessment and health-related activity by September 30, 2014 to qualify for health care savings in 2015!

SPPS staff who: 1) complete an online health assessment; and 2) choose and complete at least one health-related activity could save hundreds or even thousands of dollars on their health costs next year. Both you and your covered spouse must complete both steps to qualify.

Who is eligible?
All permanent Saint Paul Public Schools employees, COBRA participants, early retirees, and spouses covered on the health plan are eligible.

There is still time to complete, but don’t wait until the last minute! Visit wellness.spps.org to view all program options, including two new options: HealthPartners mobile app and a program called Your Choice that gives you credit for the healthy choices you're already making.

Run or walk with your colleagues this fall and don't let Minneapolis win!

SPPS is partnering with Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) to encourage as many school district employees as possible to race in the Twin Cities Marathon, 10K, and 5K. There will be a traveling trophy awarded to the district with the highest participation. MPS is currently in the lead, but it is not too late to join the SPPS 10K and 5K team.

Join the team to receive race goodies, participate in guided pre-race stretches, get Facebook-worthy pictures and more! Grab a co-worker, lace up your shoes and let’s win this challenge! The deadline to register is September 26. Visit the wellness website for registration information. A flyer is also available for download.
