Healthy OHIO is Ohio University's employee wellness initiative. Available to Ohio University employees enrolled in the medical plan and their benefits-participating spouses/partners, the program is intended to give participants customizable tools and resources for a variety of wellness goals. Healthy OHIO is an umbrella program that houses two rewards programs: an online/mobile wellness platform called Virgin Pulse and biometric health screenings. Additionally, in FY19, WellWorks will be providing a limited number of Max Buzz ™ activity trackers to encourage participation with Virgin Pulse. 

Virgin Pulse: 
Eligible participants can earn up to $200 per year (up to $50 quarterly) when they use the online/mobile wellness platform for customized engagement opportunities. Whether you’re looking to improve your financial well-being, focus on your fitness or spend more time with your pets, Virgin Pulse can help you define and meet your unique wellness goals. Learn more about how to register and engage with Virgin Pulse.

Health Screenings: 
Employees and spouses/partners eligible for Healthy OHIO can earn $60 by participating in a Biometric Health Screening.
