How do I get credits for attending my doctor appointments/preventative exams?

HealthQuest credits are no longer self-report as of 01/01/2017 including dental, vision, and well women/man preventative exams.

Credits will appear after your insurance company has processed your claim and notified Cerner that you completed the activity. According to HealthQuest program video, a good indicator your preventive credits are being processed is when you receive your EOB (Explanation of Benefits) document. By the time that has reached you that is a good sign provider has billed medical carrier, the medical carrier has seen it, and Cerner is processing credits so they should be uploaded into the portal soon. So keep an eye out for EOB document when you are looking for your credits. You will be notified via email of credits posted into your portal. 

If you have questions about pending credits, please email healthquest@cerner.com. If you have not received your credit after 6 weeks, please email benefits@ku.edu so KU Benefits can follow up with appropriate HealthQuest contacts.
