HEALTH SCREENINGS & FLU VACCINE CLINICS RESUME THIS FALL

August 31 marked the end of the Tier 1 qualifying period for the 2020 Wellness Your Way Rewards Program. Those who qualified for Tier 1 for 2020 have until Oct. 15 to accumulate your Tier 2 points and earn your $200 reward for 2020.

With the 2020 Tier 1 qualifying period closing, we have launched the Tier 1 qualifying period for 2021, which began Sept. 1, 2020. Here's a quick recap:

  2020 Qualifying Periods  2021 Qualifying Periods  
Tier 1: Sept. 1, 2019 - Aug. 31, 2020 (deadline extended due to COVID-19) Tier 1: Sept. 1, 2020 - April 30, 2021

*You must have completed Tier 1 to be eligible for Tier 2.

Employee Wellness will home mail a fold up poster that provides an overview of the 2021 rewards program in October, and the Be Well Solutions online portal will flip over to reflect the 2021 reward program year in December. As we close out Tier 2 for 2020 this fall, benefits eligible faculty and staff can get a head start on Tier 1 for 2021 if they so choose. We will begin offering onsite Know Your Numbers health screenings and flu vaccine clinics at the Kent campus again in October. Click here to read our updated screening protocols and enhanced safety measures. 

Important Updates for Regional Campus Employees

We will not be hosting Know Your Numbers screenings and flu vaccine clinics at the regional campuses this fall for the 2021 reward program cycle due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19. In lieu of on-campus screenings, we have added a new option for regional campus employees this year, which is to have a screening completed at a LabCorp facility at no cost to the employee, or, as is the case each year, you are welcome and encouraged to have your screening completed with your primary care physician. Please note:

  • ­The LabCorp option is available to regional campus employees only (in lieu of Be Well coming to your campus).
  • We encourage all employees to regularly see a primary care physician (PCP), including having your screening completed with your regular doctor if you so choose. That being said, both Kent and regional campus employees will have the primary care physician option plus an alternative option available for the 2021 rewards program:

Kent Campus Employees

Option 1: Screening with a PCP

Option 2: Screening with Be Well

Regional Campus Employees

Option 1: Screening with a PCP

Option 2: Screening at LabCorp

­Keep in mind that regional campus employees are welcome to schedule a screening with Be Well Solutions at the Kent campus if that is convenient and feasible. Click here for information about our updated onsite screening protocols and enhanced safety measures.

  • Flu vaccines will be available at the Kent campus screenings and are open to spouses/partners and dependent children aged 18 or older.
  • Regional campus employees can receive a flu vaccine from their PCP or at a local clinic, such as CVS Minute Clinic or a Walgreen's Healthcare Clinic (covered in full under KSU's health plans). Visit our regional campus health screening page for LabCorp and flu vaccine locations.

To schedule an onsite screening or access the LabCorp or Physician Screening form, please visit the Be Well portal. If you have any questions, please contact Employee Wellness at wellness@kent.edu or 330-672-0392.
