Health - Wellness

How do I use the WIN for Alaska Web site?
Register on the program's Health Activity Tracker website, which is also the program's information center. It will list upcoming activities in your area. You may also enter your health-related data and track your activities online. No one will view your personal information except you.

How does WIN for Alaska decide which programs to offer?
The company relies on feedback from employees to plan events of interest to as many employees as possible. It will also use the WebMD health risk assessment to plan events aimed at reducing the greatest overall risk factors identified in the assessment. In 2006, the most serious health risks reported by UA employees completing the health risk assessment were poor nutrition, cardiovascular disease and stress. Anyone with program ideas, may e-mail WIN For Alaska, or call toll-free at (866) 248-0797.

What do I get when I complete the health risk assessment?
You will receive an evaluation of your health, including an overall "wellness score," information about health risks that apply to you, suggestions on reducing your risks, and a summary you may share with your doctor. You and you spouse will also receive a $100 rebate on your UA health care deduction just for each questionnaire completed.

Who is eligible to complete the questionnaire?
All University of Alaska employees and their spouse or FIP (financially interdependent partner) who were enrolled for UA health care coverage in the university's database by the deadline.

Will my information from the questionnaire be kept confidential?
All information in the health risk assessment and the personal health report is personal and confidential, as protected by federal law. The University of Alaska will never see the individual results for you or your spouse or financially interdependent partner. A third-party vendor, WebMD Health Management, processes the assessment information and provides data in aggregate form without individual reports.

What if I have other questions?
If you have any additional questions regarding the wellness program, the questionnaire, or the rebate, please e-mail UA Benefits or call (907) 450-8200.
