Since 1993, SEIB Worksite Wellness, with assistance from the Alabama Department
of Public Health, has performed thousands of health risk assessments on State and
Local Government employees and their dependents.
As a result of these screenings we have referred over 10,000 employees or family
members to healthcare providers for early treatment of identified high risks.
Despite our efforts and hard work, the health of Alabama’s citizens continues to
decline. Alabama has one of the highest populations of obese residents in the country
and is among the national leaders in number of days people are unable to work or
perform tasks because of illness. In addition, we rank with the worst states in
the country on diabetes rates.
Maintaining “good health” is action oriented. Most chronic diseases such as diabetes
and heart disease are preventable with simple diet and lifestyle changes. Meet your
health coach (a nurse trained as an expert in coaching), add up any risk factors
which threaten your health, and together we’ll develop a plan to improve your health.
All active employees, covered spouses of active employees, non-Medicare retirees and non-Medicare covered spouses of retirees covered under the State Employees’ Health Insurance Plan (Group 13000) are eligible for a wellness premium discount. Each wellness plan year is November 1 through October 31. Every eligible participant must be screened either through the SEIB’s worksite wellness screening program, at your local Health Department, a certified Pharmacy location and/or by a healthcare provider (through the submission of a Provider Screening Form). Even if you are not eligible for the discount, you or your covered spouse are eligible to participate in the SEIB wellness program.
Both you and your spouse are eligible for a wellness premium discount because your spouse has SEHIP primary insurance coverage and Medicare is secondary.
New employees and spouses are eligible to apply for the wellness premium discount. New employees will have 60 days from the date of hire and non-Medicare spouses will have 60 days from their effective date to apply for the discount.
