Wellbeing Incentive and Flu Shots


Wellbeing Incentive

Earn $100 in two easy steps. Wake Forest University, in collaboration with Wake Forest Baptist Health, is offering those enrolled in the University’s medical plan an opportunity to earn a $100 credit toward their premiums. Participating Faculty and Staff can earn the credit by completing these two easy steps:

Step 1: Health Risk Assessment (HRA): Complete the confidential HRA prior to your free on-campus appointment.

  • The HRA will take approximately 15 minutes. Your results will remain completely confidential and be shared through your Personal Health Report.

Step 2: On-Campus Appointment: Register for and attend a free appointment, including:

  • Biometric screening, which tests cholesterol and blood glucose via a fingerprick blood test, body mass index, waist circumference, blood pressure, heart rate, and bone density.
  • One-on-One coaching session, in which a healthcare professional will offer recommendations, based on your biometric screening and HRA results.
  • Optional flu shot, available while you wait for your biometric screening results.

Eligibility: Faculty and Staff who are enrolled in the University’s BlueCross BlueShield medical plan.

Credit: The $100 credit will be applied to your medical plan premium in December 2017.


Flu Shots

Stay healthy this flu season. Wake Forest University is sponsoring free flu shots for all faculty, staff, and retirees. Spouses and dependent children (at least eight years old), on the University’s medical plan may also receive flu shots. Please bring your BlueCross BlueShield card to verify coverage, and talk to your primary care physician to see if the flu shot is right for you. Visit the PDC to register. 

Eligibility: All faculty, staff, and retirees (regardless of medical plan provider); and dependents enrolled in the University’s BlueCross BlueShield medical plan.

You do not need to participate in the wellbeing incentive to receive a free flu shot.
