UA Wellness Program

Complete activities to earn points and qualify for a $600 wellness rebate.​

The University of Alaska is offering all employees and spouses/financially interdependent partners (FIPs) enrolled in the UA Choice Health Plan the opportunity to earn a rebate of up to $600 (each) on their health care contributions.

Dependent children are not eligible to earn a rebate. 

To be eligible for the rebate payout, employees must meet the following criteria at the time the rebate is awarded (November each year):

  1. Be currently employed by the University
  2. Be enrolled in a UA Choice Health Plan 

If you qualify for the rebate, it is applied as a reduction in future purchases of a UA Choice Plan.  This is why you must be a current employee and be enrolled in a UA Choice Plan in order to receive the rebate. 

To meet the program requirements, employees and spouses/FIPs must complete various activities with different point values. Once that activity is completed you'll be awarded those points. In order to be eligible for the wellness rebate (paid in November each year ), employees and spouses/FIPs must accumulate a total of 7 points by the June 30 deadline. 

Once logged on complete the following types of activities to earn points towards your wellness rebate:

  • Take your health risk assessment - this activity is REQUIRED - if you do not complete this activity you will not qualify for the rebate 
  • Schedule your wellness, dental, and eye preventative exams
  • Connect your Fitbit directly from the site, or other devices through the PreventionCloud app
  • Complete your tobacco-free attestation or enroll in tobacco cessation

During the holidays, it isn’t realistic to try to  lose weight. The goal of this challenge is  to concentrate and maintain weight during the holiday season, while practicing healthy habits. Log and track your weight  throughout the entire challenge.

This is a 26-day challenge. The objective of this challenge is to experiment with new exercises, encourage healthy fitness habits, help participants to think outside of the box and add some variety to their daily routine. Exercises must start with each letter of the alphabet beginning with A and ending with Z, and can be either a cardio, resistance training, or any other commonly-known exercise.

If you have any questions about any of the challenges, please reach out to your dedicated program manager, Victoria Carver, at 


The Wellness Rebate  for FY22 will be paid on the November 18, 2022 paycheck.
