Banner Health Employee Benefits - Wellness  


Heart and stethoscope  

You know your phone number, your employee number and your PIN. But do you know the numbers that could be the key to a healthy life and could earn you a wellness incentive?

ECHO (Employees Choosing Healthy Options) is ready to help you Know Your Numbers, including blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose and body composition, with a free biometrics screening. To be eligible to receive the wellness incentive, biometrics must be completed by employees and their enrolled spouses/domestic partners by the established deadline each calendar year, with the incentive payable in the following year. Incentives are typically announced during Annual Enrollment in the fall.

We encourage all employees to participate annually in a biometrics screening. This will provide you the opportunity to accurately track the effectiveness of your healthy lifestyle choices.

The 2015 wellness incentives will match the levels currently in use in 2014.These voluntary screenings provide an opportunity for each of us to know the key numbers related to our health status and accurately track the effectiveness of our healthy lifestyle choices.

The incentive levels payable in 2015 are:
  • Banner Health Savings Plan members
    Annual contributions to your Health Savings Account of $300 if enrolled at Employee Only or Employee+Children level, or $600 at other levels
  • Choice Plus and Select Plan members
    Payroll credit of $10 per month if enrolled at Employee Only or Employee+Children level, or $15 per month at other levels
  • Employees not enrolled in a Banner medical plan
    A one-time payroll credit of $50

To be eligible to receive an incentive in 2015, a 2014 biometrics screening must be completed by Nov. 21, 2014. As a reminder, if your spouse/domestic partner will be enrolled in your 2015 Banner medical plan, both of you must complete biometrics by the deadline in order for any incentive to be paid.

If you are new to Banner, completing a screening in 2014 may earn you a 2014 wellness incentive and may also qualify you for any incentives we offer next year. Your enrolled spouse or domestic partner must participate as well.For details, refer to the Wellness section of your Benefits Enrollment Guide, or contact please call ECHO at (888) 294-4010 or email.

There are two options for employees and enrolled spouses/domestic partners to complete biometrics in 2014:

  • Primary Care Provider - Your primary care provider (PCP) may complete your biometrics screening and blood draw through Nov. 21, 2014. You will be responsible for all costs not covered by your medical plan, and for collecting and submitting all completed paperwork.
    Your PCP Biometrics Screening Form and blood test results must be received in the ECHO office by 5 p.m. on Nov. 21, 2014. 
  • Onsite - Free onsite biometrics screenings for employees and enrolled spouses/domestic partners will be offered across the system on select dates through Nov. 21, 2014. View 2014 Biometrics Screening Schedule. We try to accommodate walk-ins at each screening but encourage you to schedule an appointment as we can be busy and we value your time. Individuals with appointments are given first priority.
