OC Healthy Steps: Annual Health and Wellness Program

This year’s OC Healthy Steps Wellness period is June 1, 2020 through August 21, 2020.

New wellness site, new features, better health. The new website is www.ochsstaywell.com.

You can get started on the new site on June 1, 2020. Since its new, everyone will have to click “Sign Up” and create a username and password.

This year the program consists of two steps:

1.    Health Risk Assessment (HRA)

2.    Non-smoking Attestation.

Each step is quick and easy (average time is 20 minutes to complete both)!

What about the Biometric Screening?

As a result of concerns related to the COVID-19 health crisis, we are waiving the Biometric Screening portion of OC Healthy Steps this year. We do not want to require a routine preventative screening when:

1.    There is a drain on health care resources to deal with COVID-19; and

2.    People are advised to stay at home and minimize contact with others.

If you still want to get a Biometric Screening for your own benefit, you can visit your health care provider. There will be no cost for the visit as long as it is billed to your health plan under “preventative benefits.” If you are being treated for an active medical condition that requires similar lab tests, you may be charged a copayment/coinsurance.

To earn your 2021 wellness credit, complete your OC healthy Steps Between June 1 and August 21, 2020.
