Empowering a Community of Excellence

HealthQuest Rewards Program

HealthQuest is a wellness rewards program part of the State Employee Health Plan (SEHP). If you are a newly hired employee or enrolled in the medical portion of the SEHP, then you have an opportunity to earn credits by participating in wellness activities offered through the state's HealthQuest Rewards Program. If you earn enough credits, you will earn a discount to your medical plan premiums.

HealthQuest is an optional program. Employees are not required to participate in order to be covered under the SEHP. There is no additional cost added to an employee’s premium for not participating, but they will be paying the base rate (undiscounted rate) for their medical plan coverage.

Information about Plan Year 2017 (January 1 - December 31)

Your Medical plan premiums are determined by your participation in the HealthQuest Rewards Incentive Program. If you qualified for the Plan Year 2017 HealthQuest Rewards Discount, you will need to subtract $10 from the Health Insurance Medical plan premiums to arrive at your discounted semi-monthly premium.

From January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017 employees and covered spouses in SEHP medical plans have the opportunity to earn credits by participating in various well-being activities offered through HealthQuest. Employee and covered spouses will need to complete the following activities in order to earn credits. Employee and Employee/child(ren) coverage will earn $480 insurance premium reduction for calendar year 2018 and Employee/Spouse and Employee/Full Family both the employee and covered spouse can each earn a $240 insurance premium reduction ($480 total) for calendar year 2018.
