Earn incentive dollars

What you need to know

The Wellness Incentive Program encourages you to take care of yourself and earn incentive dollars while you do it. You’ll learn more about your health, stay on top of annual physical exams, and address health risk factors that need to be improved. You’ll earn incentive dollars for each step you take—and your covered spouse will, too.

Deadlines to keep in mind

In order to receive wellness incentives in your Health Savings Account (HSA) for 2020, incentives must be processed by Cigna no later than the end of November 2020.

Keep in mind, it may take 3 to 4 weeks for Cigna to process your incentives, so the earlier you complete and submit your wellness incentives, the better.

Incentives not processed before the deadline will be credited toward your 2021 HSA (this is a change from our current practice). This will ensure we report accurate information on your W-2. Incentives under the Health Plus plan Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) can continue to be earned through the end of the year.

Monitoring your incentive progress

Want to know what incentives you have earned and what your next steps are to earn more? Go to myCigna.com (From BAE Systems Network) | (Log In), select the "My Health" tab and click on "Incentive Awards."

Some incentives take longer than others to process.

  • Wellness Screening Form processing can take up to two to three business days.
  • Cancer screening incentives can take up to 30 days from the date Cigna processes the claim.
  • Advance Medical, dental, and vision incentives can take up to three weeks.

Tips for submitting your Wellness Screening Form

Make sure your Wellness Screening Form has all four biometric measures filled out and that the form is signed by you and your doctor.

You can submit your completed Wellness Screening Form by fax, mail, or by uploading it on myCigna.com (From BAE Systems Network) | (Log In). Follow the "Submit Completed Forms Electronically" link located in the "Related Links" section on the Incentive Awards page. Submitting the form yourself may be faster and more efficient than asking your doctor’s office to do it.

Keep a copy of your completed Wellness Screening Form for your records.
