Award Winning Wellness Program
Blue Cross of Idaho first launched our Corporate Wellness Challenge in 2008. In 2009, the program was recognized (among 43 entries from Blue Plans around the United States) by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association as a Best of Blue winner for Engagement and Education. We are sponsoring the program for a fifth straight year and seeing greater interest than ever before.
We make the Corporate Wellness Challenge available to groups of 40 or more contracts (employees who have Blue Cross insurance through the employer). The challenge is designed to encourage employees to participate in getting preventive care (pap smears, mammograms, flu shots and colorectal screening) and taking an online health assessment.
Blue Cross provides turnkey materials and an incentive prize for groups to use to promote the program to employees. The program is FREE and groups that have participated year over year have seen significant increases in the percent of their employees getting preventive screening and taking the online assessment.
