Deadline approaching: Save money on healthcare in 2015
The deadline is quickly approaching. You could save hundreds or even thousands of dollars on healthcare costs in 2015. Here's how:

  1. You and your covered spouse complete an online health assessment before September 30. It only takes 15 minutes.
  2. You and your covered spouse complete at least one health-related activity each at healthpartners.com/wellbeing. If you already signed up for an activity, make sure you stick with it until the end of the program to receive credit.
  3. See healthcare savings that could total thousands of dollars in 2015! See what you could earn at wellness.spps.org.

Not sure if you completed all the steps? Check your Wellness Initiative status by visiting healthpartners.com/wellbeing or by contacting Health Partners Customer Service at 952-883-7800.

As we enter a new school year, things can be overwhelming and the transition from summer can be hard. When we are dedicated to serving others, we often forget to take care of ourselves. However, we need to remind ourselves that when we are healthy and happy, we can serve our students better as they learn and grow. As the school year begins, try to remind yourself of the goals you have for yourself, why they are important to you, and what action steps you can take to achieve your goals.
