WELLNESS PROGRAM

Making health choices easier!

Bickford Senior Living has worked hard to ensure that our health benefits do what they are intended to do - help you and your family achieve and maintain good health.  Fortunately, good health actually costs less! That is why we encourage you to take part in our wellness program. Bickford has partnered with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City to offer a Wellness Program, A Healthier You™.

 

BFMs who complete wellness requirements will be eligible to receive a discount of $40 per month (nearly $500 per year!) on their monthly medical premiums.

 

For BFMs on the plan prior to 7/1/2022, in order to receive the wellness discount starting July 1, 2023, requirements are as follows:

  • Complete a Health Risk Assessment (HRA) through A Healthier You™

  • Receive a biometric screening OR routine annual preventive exam with a physician by April 30, 2023

 

For new BFMs (starting after 7/1/2022), wellness requirements must be met within the first 90 days of enrolling in the medical plan. The new rates will then be effective the first of the month in the following quarter (January, April, July or October):

  • Complete a Health Risk Assessment (HRA) through A Healthier You™

  • Receive a biometric screening OR routine annual preventive exam

 

To confirm eligibility, a verification form, signed by the physician and BFM, must be submitted to BlueKC. For a physician screening form, BFMs can download a personalized pre-populated form on the A Healthier You™ portal using these directions.

 

A Healthier You™ has both online and mobile experiences that make staying healthy and managing your wellness requirements easy. You can access all of your health and wellness tools and information online with your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Plus, you will be rewarded for meeting your health goals. See the benefit guide for more information
