Program offers prizes for getting healthy

Elon Wellness encourages faculty and staff to participate in Blue Cross Blue Shield Healthy Outcomes program to receive great rewards for healthy behavior.

Do you want to be eligible to win a $100 gift card, a technological gadget or maybe a free weekend vacation?

If you participate in Elon’s group insurance plan administered by Blue Cross Blue Shield, you have a chance to win a variety of prizes while you get healthy.

BCBS Healthy Outcomes is a program that provides participants with an easy-to-use website, engaging videos, educational programs and online seminars that make it easier to live a healthier life. Every time you participate in activities, you can earn credits toward health goals.

Elon employees who earn 125 credits between now and June 30 will be entered into a drawing for gift cards, gadgets and a weekend vacation getaway.

Here’s how it works:

  • Log onto to www.mybcbsnc.com and click on the wellness tab.
  • Take the Health Assessment, a 15-minute multiple-choice questionnaire, by Feb. 28 to earn 40 credits. In addition, you will be entered in a drawing for a $100 gift card.
  • Once the assessment is done, complete a series of activities within the next six months to be entered into the final drawing. The activities include healthy living programs, healthy living conversations, online monthly seminars, health challenges, Elon Wellness Center custom activity, preventive care adherence and a one-on-one health coach interaction.
