Health Buzz: New year – time to take the HAT

Executive Branch members covered by the state employee health benefit are encouraged to take the Health Assessment Test every year, and now that we’ve turned the calendar to 2019, it’s time to get moving. Taking the HAT earns you $200 on a HRA debit card, money that can be used to cover out-of-pocket medical expenses. Completing the HAT also enables members to take part in the Health Rewards program, another great benefit.

This year there is a change in the way you take the HAT. Instead of logging into Anthem’s website, this year you’ll use the new Mobile Health Consumer. You can register either using the Mobile Health Consumer smartphone/tablet app or by using your desktop computer. Here is information on how to register:
