1. Know Your Numbers Screening
Employees can participate in a worksite Know Your Numbers (KYN) Health Screening administered by Anthem’s vendor Healthways and Hooper Holmes. These screenings are scheduled at various State worksite locations. After participating in a worksite KYN Health Screening, Anthem will award 100 points in the employee’s Health Rewards online program. It takes approximately three weeks for an employee’s points to post in their Health Rewards online program after participating in a worksite KYN screening. If an employee cannot attend a worksite KYN Health Screening, they can visit their health care provider to have the screening done. The employee or their health care provider then faxes a completed physician fax form with the KYN numbers to Healthways, which in turn will notify Anthem Health Rewards so that the employee can receive 100 points. For more information about Know Your Numbers, including available worksite screenings, how to register, and how to print off a physician fax form, please visit the Know Your Numbers page.
2. Fitness and Nutrition Events
Fitness and Nutrition events are reported by the employee in their Anthem Health Rewards online program. Each fitness event is worth 5 points and each nutrition event is worth 5 points. Once the employee has reported 10 fitness events and 10 nutrition events, the employee receives 100 points. A fitness event is defined as being physically active for at least 30 minutes a day on 5 or more days in a week. A nutrition event is defined as consuming at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables on 5 or more days in a week.

3. Employee Health Education Program
The Employee Health Education Program covers health promotion and disease prevention topics, important medical self-care and health utilization decisions, and health and wellness program approaches that can help prevent or slow the progression of serious health concerns. You’ll gain a solid understanding of benefits and resources for combating health risks and learn about wellness program resources to identify health risks early and steps to control them.
The Program is comprised of three learning modules:
- Health and Wellness 101
- Medical Self-Care
- Understanding Your Health
Employees can complete the three learning modules by:
- Attending worksite presentations arranged by your agency – click here for scheduled events.
- Online Review: Click here for Modules.
- A paper education packet if you are unable to view them online; Call 271-4103 to request a packet
An employee must complete all three learning modules in order to receive 100 points in the Health Rewards online program. For employees that participate in worksite module presentations, the presenter will take attendance for participation. For online review or paper-based module completion, there will be a questionnaire for each module an employee must complete and submit. Submission instructions are on the back of each questionnaire. It will take up to 30 days for Health Rewards points to post after completing all three modules either in workshop presentations or through self-review and questionnaire submission.

HEALTH INSURANCE PORTABILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY ACT (HIPAA) wellness regulations require a reasonable alternative offered to an employee for a health contingent activity. Anthem has a medical waiver as a reasonable alternative that requires employee to call Anthem members services to request waiver, visit health care provider and provider signs and waives standard due to medical inability to perform any type physical activity for 30 minutes per day or flu vaccination. Provider or employee faxes waiver to Anthem for Health Reward.
HIPPA wellness regulations require a reasonable alternative offered to an employee that does not satisfy a health outcome activity, which includes being tobacco free. Anthem has a “Health Action Plan” as a reasonable alternative for an employee that wants to quit tobacco for the Health Reward. The Health Action Plan is a written plan identified by the employee along with their health care provider, which outlines the provider’s recommendations for quitting tobacco such as medication, counseling, or both. The Health Action Plan can be printed off by logging in at www.anthem.com, accessing the Health Rewards Program, and visiting the page to report the tobacco free activity. The employee is responsible for submitting the completed Health Action Plan to Anthem Customer Service.
