Health Fair Schedule - Fall 2016

2016-2017 Rewards for Wellness Program

The second and third activities of the 2016-2017 Rewards for Wellness Program utilize the exciting RALLY platform offered by UnitedHealthcare through its www.myuhc.com website. If you have not already registered to use www.myuhc.com, please do so today.

Please use the link below to access and complete the “How to Rally” tutorial.  You must take the tutorial and complete the questionnaire at the end of the tutorial by September 30, 2016 in order to qualify for a $50 co-share credit incentive.* 

Once you have completed the “How to Rally” tutorial, visit www.myuhc.com and begin your RALLY experience right away by registering on RALLY and taking the RALLY Health Survey.  You will know you have completed the RALLY Health Survey when you are given your “RALLY Age.”  Complete the RALLY Health Survey before December 31, 2016 to qualify for a $50 co-share credit incentive!*

The other links below provide helpful instructions regarding registering on RALLY and accessing the RALLY Health Survey.  Please use them if you have any trouble accessing RALLY through www.myuhc.com. 

RALLY Information:

Note: The "How To Rally" is a digital roadmap to help you understand Rally. Once you begin the tutorial, you will see a video that reviews Rally. Once the video is completed, access the rest of the tutorial by clicking "next" on the bottom right corner or clicking the tabs in order from top to bottom on the left hand bar. Remember to complete the questionnaire to receive credit for this activity.

How Do I Know I Finished The Rally Health Survey? You know you have finished the Rally Health Survey when you see your Rally age. You can also check your Health Profile, which shows your health survey results, by clicking your avatar on the top navigation bar, on the Rally website. UnitedHealthcare is tracking your participation so you do not have to fax anything or do anything else to receive credit.

*All State of Rhode Island employees are eligible to participate in Rewards for Wellness programs and screenings, but only employees who are paying the State employee medical co-shares that are posted at www.employeebenefits.ri.gov are eligible to receive co-share credit incentives.

September is Cholesterol Awareness Month

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. The American Heart Association outlines the following methods to lower cholesterol and reduce risk of heart disease and stroke:

  • Lifestyle Changes: Your diet, weight, physical activity, and exposure to tobacco smoke all affect your cholesterol level.
  • Know Your Fats: Knowing which fats raise LDL cholesterol and which ones don't is the first step in lowering your risk of heart disease.
  • Cooking for Lower Cholesterol: A heart-healthy eating plan can help you manage your blood cholesterol level.
  • Understand Drug Therapy Options: For some people, lifestyle changes alone aren't enough to reach healthy cholesterol levels. Your doctor may prescribe medication.
