The University of Michigan’s MHealthy Rewards program is encouraging employees to take proactive steps to learn about and improve their health by offering a $75 incentive.
Active, benefits-eligible faculty and staff can qualify by completing the confidential health questionnaire and set a healthy goal on the MHealthy Portal.
The deadline to complete MHealthy Rewards is May 31. Last year, more than 24,000 employees participated in the program.
- Identify what health areas are thriving and which may need attention.
- Get a personalized list of recommendations based on current health needs. The list could include services related to mental and emotional well-being, financial well-being, sleep, nutrition, physical activity, tobacco and more.
“Just the simple act of setting a goal can help to create a healthy habit,” said Karen Schmidt, senior director of MHealthy. “It helps us focus on our well-being priorities and encourages us to keep going in the right direction.”
The portal includes six goal setting categories: calm, sleep, reflect, social connection, nutrition or physical activity.
U-M partners with Asset Health Inc. to administer the MHealthy Portal and ensure personal information is kept confidential. In addition to the health questionnaire and goal setting, the portal includes a suite of programs and resources to support health and well-being.
