University committee considers new health plan options

Charged with examining the role a medical plan can play in encouraging good health, a newly created Member Engagement Health Plan Design Committee has begun thinking about new incentives that could be implemented in 2012 and beyond.

Over the next several months, the committee will consider ways in which university health plans might offer a lower monthly premium for those who commit to staying healthy and managing chronic conditions with their physician. Committee recommendations will be made to University Human Resources by the end of December.

Watch the Record Update and the University Record next week for more complete information, including a brief informational video and a request for faculty and staff input by way of an online survey.
