Blueprint for Wellness Registration!

HealthFlex participants are eligible to complete their Blueprint for Wellness screening at the Annual Conference Session or at their local Quest Facility.  Blueprint for Wellness is a comprehensive “biometric” screening that provides information about your heart, liver, kidney function, cholesterol, blood sugar control, thyroid function, iron and more!  You’ll also receive personalized data on 30 health factors.  Blueprint for Wellness (BFW) provides an opportunity to learn about your health, and earn $100 PulseCash* and up to 120 Wellness Points (depending on your screening results) on your path to 150 Points (and $150 more in PulseCash).

Important Information for Retirees Regarding Via Benefits:

  • No HealthFlex premium payments or deductions from pension checks
  • Conference will provide a monthly stipend (HRA) to retirees which will be deposited in a tax advantaged (tax free) Health Reimbursement Account to be used for medical related expenses such as premiums, co-pays and deductibles. (Any money not used in one calendar year automatically rolls over for future year use). You must work through Via Benefits for your supplemental to receive the HRA.
  • The Conference Board of Pension & Health will review the monthly stipend (HRA) every 2 years. The current amounts are as follows:

$1,800/year - Retired eligible participants with 20 or more years of Pre-82 service.
$1,200/year - Retired eligible participants with less than 20 years of Pre-82 service.

  • With the assistance and support of Licensed Benefit Advisors at Via Benefits, retirees can purchase a health plan most suited to their individual needs and, in general, at a lower cost.
  • Your Board has established a “safety net” fund to assist with unanticipated “outlier” medical costs incurred by retirees.
