Healthy choices incentives and offerings
Healthy choices incentives are designed to encourage you to take an active role in your health care, help USC provide health resources that best support our employees, and help you save money. (Note that due to differing medical plans, these incentives currently do not apply to employees at Verdugo Hills Hospital, or certain union-represented employees enrolled in the Anthem MyChoice HMO, or using one of the Opt Out options. Please see your own pages for information.)
Health assessment discount
Completing your annual health assessment can save you up to $480/year in medical premium costs. See more on the Vitality health assessment incentive.
Primary Care Physician (PCP) discount
If you are enrolled in the USC Trojan Care EPO, EPO Plus, or PPO, and designate a PCP for yourself and each of your covered dependents, you receive a $10 discount on your copay amount each time you visit the physician’s office (excluding visits to a specialist). Be sure to designate your PCP at least 15 days before your next appointment to receive the credit. This discount applies to each covered family member with a designated PCP and is only available through the USC Trojan Care EPO, EPO Plus, and PPO plans.
To designate a PCP, register at the HealthComp site (you may also wish to consult this helpful guide to designating a primary care physician). You may change your PCP designation at any time. Changes made on or before the 15th day of the month take effect the first day of the following month.
Fitness incentive program
Do you have a gym membership? Take fitness classes? Work with a personal trainer? Play on a sports league or team? Use a fitness device? The WageWorks Fitness Incentive Program helps you save money on your healthy lifestyle choices by reimbursing you for many of the most common health and fitness services and activities – up to $220 for 2021.
Here’s how it works. You pay fitness expenses as you would normally, save the receipts, and then file a claim at www.wageworks.com (if you have a flexible spending account, this is the same login). You will be reimbursed through automatic payroll payments. You can sign up for this incentive anytime. Eligible expenses are listed on WageWorks site and include:
- Memberships and fees – gym, fitness center/studio, health club, swim & tennis club, etc. (including costs associated with Gympass – see below)
- Fitness/sports classes/instruction (including martial arts, yoga/Pilates, etc.)
- Race/walk registration
- Fitness devices (Fitbit, Apple watches, etc.)
If you have trouble registering at the WageWorks site, be sure you are entering your legal first name and last name (including hyphen if necessary), and – if you have moved in the last year or two – you may need to enter your zip code from previous address.
