Wellness Exam Incentive Program

The Texas A&M University System is taking steps to encourage employees to live healthier lives by actively engaging with a health care provider through utilizing preventive services available under the A&M Care Health Plan. To promote this healthy behavior, enrolled members will be required to receive a wellness exam/annual physical during the designated time period to receive the lower wellness premium rate on their insurance.

Please note that this is an annual requirement to receive a lower premium rate on insurance for each fiscal year.

NOTE: If either you or your spouse do not complete the wellness exam incentive, you will not qualify for the lower wellness premium rate, and will instead pay a premium differential of $30 per month for each individual who does not complete the wellness exam incentive requirement. These additional premiums will remain in effect until completion of the wellness exam is reported from BlueCross BlueShield back to System Benefits Administration (approximately 90 days). The annual additional premium could be as much as $360/$720, so act now and make your wellness appointment before the deadline.

 If you have additional questions related to the program, contact BlueCross BlueShield directly at (866) 295-1212 or Benefit Assistance at mary.canales@tamucc.edu or (361) 825-6081.
