Empowering a Community of Excellence

HealthQuest Rewards Program

The State Employee Health Plan (SEHP) offers the HealthQuest rewards program. If you are enrolled in the medical portion of the SEHP, you can earn credits by participating in HealthQuest wellness activities.  If you are enrolled in any SEHP medical plan you (and your spouse if covered under the health plan) must earn 40 credits to recieve a $480 discount to your medical plan premiums in the next plan year.  If you are enrolled in Plan C, J, N, or Q, you and/or your covered spouse also can earn additional employer contributions to your HRA/HSA.

HealthQuest is an optional program; you are not required to participate in order to be covered under the SEHP.

Information about Plan Year 2020 (January 1 - December 31)

HealthQuest Minimum Requirements and Rewards for 2020 - On Tuesday, June 16, the Health Care Commission (HCC) voted to reduce the number of HealthQuest credits required for eligible members enrolled in the State Employee Health Plan to receive the 2021 premium incentive discount. The credit requirement was reduced from 40 points to 20 points, due to the exceptional circumstances created by COVID-19. More information can be found on the HealthQuest website.

HealthQuest has a new portal for the 2020 plan year.  All members, even if you had an old account, will need to sign up for the new portal to earn credits for 2020.  An email was sent by the SEHP on 1/2/2020 to the email used for the previous HealthQuest portal.  A copy of that email with enrollment instructions can be found here.
