When you take action to get healthy and stay healthy, you feel better, you’re happier and you enjoy a better quality of life. Taking good care of ourselves and seeking preventive care improves our overall well-being. It also leads to better health outcomes.
The BMC wellness program — bWell – your well-being matters — gives you and your spouse the opportunity to assess your current health status and provides you with tools and a support system to improve or maintain your health. Participating in bWell also helps you save on health care costs.
Each year you have an opportunity to earn medical plan premium credits that reduce your next year’s monthly paycheck costs for health care. Details on how to earn credits are announced each year. You can see program details by visiting mybmcwellness.com or by calling WellRight, our wellness program partner, at 1-800-240-0733. bWell also offers fun individual, team and community challenges, and incentives for participating. Easy-to-use online tools and achievement milestones inspire participants to keep reaching for the next level of health.
The bWell program offers the following programs and resources to employees eligible for BMC benefits:
A biometric screening provides an excellent opportunity to know your numbers — several key measurements like blood glucose and total cholesterol — that can greatly affect your health. Health Screenings are held annually at some BMC locations. An on-site health professional draws a small amount of blood and measures your height, weight and waistline. Then, you get a personalized report highlighting your results and what they mean. If you work from home or cannot attend an onsite screening, have your doctor perform the screening and submit a physician fax form. You can also print a LabCorp form and take it and your photo identification to your local LabCorp facility. For more details, login at mybmcwellness.com and select the Measure Up challenge.
The Well-Being Survey is an online, confidential health questionnaire that assesses your lifestyle and overall health. Simply answer a few focused questions and get instant feedback on what’s helping or hurting your overall health and well-being.
If you and your spouse need help on your wellness journey, a Lifestyle Motivator from Marquee Health can help guide and encourage you. And there’s no limit on the amount of support and motivation you can request before well-being becomes a new way of life. Consultations with Lifestyle Motivators are available at your convenience by phone or video and web chat.
Your participation in any BMC wellness activity is completely voluntary and confidential. The personal information provided as part of the health screening and Well-Being Survey are confidential, and are NOT available to BMC. WellRight treats the screening and assessment as confidential personal medical documents. BMC will only receive a summary report recommending what health promotion programs would be most beneficial for the entire employee population.
