November 1-14, 2019
Your Plan for Health
Your Plan for Health (YP4H), Ohio State’s employee wellness program, provides you with resources to help you thrive in the workplace and in your personal life. The YP4H program is powered by Virgin Pulse and includes:
- Habit-based tracking and ways to personalize your program in the areas where you would most like to focus, including physical activity, nutrition, sleep, stress management, finances, relationships and resiliency.
- A variety of opportunities to earn points and rewards.
- Healthy living programs and individual and university-wide challenges.
- Helpful wellness tips that motivate and encourage you to learn more about making healthy choices.
- Compatibility with a variety of fitness devices for automated tracking.
Rewards You Can Earn in 2020
Each enrolled participant may earn rewards which include up to $300 in Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) credits and up to $100 in PulseCash in 2020. These rewards are available to be earned on a quarterly basis. Each quarter, participants can earn up to $75 in HRA credits and $25 in PulseCash.
HRA credits – The maximum annual amount of HRA credits that each enrolled employee and spouse can earn through the YP4H Incentive Program is $300. If you do not use all of your HRA credits during the year you earn them, the funds will roll over so you can pay for future health care costs that you incur while you remain enrolled in the medical plan. Rollover funds are available after the grace period for the previous calendar year’s reimbursement requests, usually after April 15. To access the rollover funds, you must still be enrolled in the medical plan on the rollover date. Learn more about HRA credits.
PulseCash – Participants can earn up to $100 in PulseCash. PulseCash1 is available for you to redeem in the Virgin Pulse online store to purchase gift cards or health and wellness items, such as fitness tracking devices, or to donate to a variety of charitable organizations. Learn more about PulseCash.
^PulseCash is subject to taxation at the time it is earned.
