WellPerks & Healthy Day Off

2021 Wellness Program Incentive Policy

By completing an annual physical in 2021 by September 30, 2021, you will receive your incentive as a single lump-sum payment during the fourth quarter of 2021 for the 2021 plan year.

How much?

  • Single coverage payment: $550
  • Dependent Coverage: $1,100 (Only if both you and your spouse complete a physical)

How does it work?

  • Starting in 2021, you (and your spouse, if applicable) will no longer need to complete and upload the Exam Certification form.
  • When you visit a UHC network provider for your annual exam, a claim for this is filed with UHC. Record of your visit will now be tracked by UHC and Olympic Steel will receive the report monthly.  Please note that only your name, the date of service and type of service is reported to Olympic Steel.
  • You must be active during the incentive period in order to earn your payout. Changes in eligibility status may result in a pro-rated payout (i.e., entering or exiting the health care plan due to marriage, divorce, etc.)
  • If you are hired September 1, 2021 or later, you will be grandfathered into the incentive for 2021 and receive a pro-rated amount based on months of eligible employment.
  • If you terminate employment prior to the payout date, you will not receive the incentive.
  • Your incentive lump sum is categorized as “add to net” pre-tax dollars.
  • After payouts have been made for 2021, for concerns that require an appeal (i.e., medical coding), a 2-week grace period in November will allow for adjustments.
Another advantage of WellPerks… Healthy Day Off !

Take a PAID day off from work to get your annual physical

We understand your time is valuable so for 2021 we are giving employees a Healthy Day Off.  You’ll get a full work day off with pay to complete your annual visit. This paid day off is only reserved for the same day as you have your physical.  To take advantage of the Healthy Day Off benefit you must have your doctor’s appointment completed by September 30, 2021 and follow the steps outlined below.

Step 1:  Submit a Time Off Request Form to your supervisor and check the “Physical” box.

Step 2:  Submit the Time Off Request Form to your supervisor at least 30 days prior to your preventive exam appointment.

Step 3:  During your visit, obtain a doctor’s note which includes the date, reason for visit and their signature or stamp.

Step 4:  Submit the doctor’s note to your supervisor or Corporate Human Resources.  If submitted to Human Resources by Tuesday at 10 am, the paid day off will be included in the next pay cycle.

Your doctor’s office will submit a claim for your visit to UHC once your visit is complete. Each month HR will receive a file from UHC of who has completed their annual physical for the month prior.
