2022 Wellness Program Reminder
We are days away from the Wellness Program’s deadline. Failure to meet the deadline will result in a surcharge of $600 for the following year.
All employees, including spouses (if applicable) who are enrolled in a SMP-sponsored medical plan, must individually complete the yearly wellness program through Virgin Pulse from separate accounts before October 15, 2022.
The Wellness Program contains 3 sections that must all be completed by the deadline to avoid an irreversible surcharge of $600 the following year:
- Know your Numbers: In this section, you must complete BOTH the Annual Physical Date Attestation form AND the Biometric screening form.
- Be Tobacco Free: In this section, you must complete EITHER the Nicotine Free Agreement Date Attestation form OR the Tobacco Journey if you use tobacco of any kind. Note: The tobacco journey takes a minimum of 10 days.
- Preventive Care: In this section, you must complete EITHER an Annual Dental Date Attestation form OR any Cancer screening Date Attestation form.
Cancer Screening: Colonoscopy, Mammogram, Pap test, PSA, Skin Cancer.
Please, note the surcharge is irreversible under no condition. If you have started the Wellness Program, keep in mind you will not be fully compliant until all 3 required sections are completed.
Employees hired after July 15th 2022, do not have to complete the Wellness Program.
If you require assistance on how to complete the program, please refer to www.smpbenefits.com under 2022 Wellness Program to locate both the Wellness Program guide and the one pager.
