Health Reward FAQ

The 2017 Fall Campaign has ended. Be sure to participate in the 2018 Spring Fitness Challenge (starting January 16, 2018) to get rewarded! Visit our homepage to learn how employees and spouses on the UVA Health Plan can earn up to $200 each.

All UVA employees and their spouses covered under the UVA Health Plan are eligible to participate and earn rewards for completing the biannual Hoo’s Well fitness challenges (one in the spring and one in the fall). Rewards will be paid in the UVA Health Plan subscriber’s paycheck as taxable income.

How can I check to see if I am getting my 2017 Fall Campaign reward?
Check your late February/early March 2018 paystub to see if you and/or your spouse covered by the health plan earned the health reward payout. Hoo’s Well will send all completers an email to alert you of the reward in your paycheck. If you are on Choice, Value, or Basic, you will receive the reward in the health plan subscriber’s paycheck as taxable income.

I’m not seeing my reward. How can I verify that my activities show complete with ActiveHealth? Visit MyActiveHealth Portal to be sure that your previous rewards summary shows that you have completed the necessary steps to earn your reward. Log in and on the left click “Earn your Rewards.” To the right see “View your previous rewards.” You will see your 2017 challenge reward summary.

I’m still not seeing my reward. What should I do now?
If you feel that you have completed the items necessary to get rewarded but did not get your reward payout in your February/March 2018 paycheck, please complete an appeals form in full and provide proper documentation. The appeals form has complete instructions. Appeals are due by 5pm on August 3, 2018.

If I am on the Basic Health Plan, will my rewards be deposited in my HSA?
No, your reward will be deposited in your February/early March, 2018 paycheck.

As a Basic Health high deductible health plan (HDHP) enrollee, can I elect to contribute my Hoo’s Well rewards to my Health Savings Account (HSA)?
Yes, if you are on the Basic Health plan and have a Health Savings Account (HSA), you can elect to have some/all of your wellness rewards placed in to your HSA as long as you do not exceed the IRS maximum for 2018. These rewards include the biometric screening, the online health assessment, the fall fitness challenge and the spring fitness challenge. Please complete the HSA One Time Request Change Form. Follow the instructions on the form and submit by the deadline, February 1, 2018. To submit, please email a completed form to or fax to 434-924-4486. Please contact UHR at 434-243-3344 with any questions.
