Wellness Premium Incentive Credit

Receive the lowest premium on your health insurance with the TAMUS Two-Step Wellness Program.

What is the TAMUS Two-Step Wellness Program?                   TAMUS Two Step Logo

Through the Two-Step Wellness Program, members engage in health-promoting activities via a personalized check-list located in MyEvive.

You and your dependent spouse will need to complete two tasks from your personalized checklist list to ensure that you have the lowest rate for your health insurance premiums. 

Highlights of the TAMUS Two-Step Wellness Program:

  • Complete two of the five tasks listed for you in MyEvive between September 1 and June 30 each year. NOTE: The deadline has been extended to August 31, 2020 in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
  • Applies to employees AND covered spouses enrolled in the A&M Care Plan.
  • A premium reduction of $30 per month will be applied for each individual (you and your spouse) who completes the wellness exam and health assessment by the August 31 deadline.
  • Retirees will automatically receive the lower premium.
  • You can verify your completion status for the wellness premium incentive by logging into or registering for your MyEvive account at tamus.myevive.com.

If you choose not to participate in the wellness premium incentive program, you will not receive the $30 premium incentive reduction. 

If you were recently hired or enrolled in the A&M Health Plan, your wellness incentive will be credited on your first day of health coverage.  Newly enrolled employees and covered spouses have a grace period of the current plan year plus one additional plan year to complete the TAMUS Two Step requirements.
