Take a Health Risk Assessment and earn $100.00 – Yes, you read that right! If you have not previously done so, log on to Anthem or Cigna and answer some questions about your health. You’ll get a snapshot of your health, and see if there are any areas you need to put more focus on. Upon completion, your $100 gift card will be mailed to you. And don’t forget to encourage your spouse to do the same, as they will also earn $100 gift card. Plus, if you completed an assessment in the previous calendar year, you are also eligible to complete one in 2017!

To help you feel more comfortable completing the questionnaire, you can be assured that your answers are strictly confidential, and will never be shared with Pearson or used by Anthem or Cigna to determine eligibility or payment.
