How To Start

These instructions will help you get started with the KeepWell@Work program. It's as easy as 1-2-3!

Step 1:

Please email keepwell@calverthealthmed.org or call 410-535-8233.

Renewing your membership?

All employees and family members who joined, or renewed, during a previous enrollment period are required to complete the online questionnaire and biometrics each year in order to maintain, or renew, their wellness benefits, including the World Gym membership.

Please complete the User ID Request form above to begin the renewal process.

Effective July 1, 2016, an annual HRA renewal fee must be paid at the time of biometric completion by ALL renewing participants. The participant is responsible for covering $13 of the HRA fee (half of the $26 total HRA fee).The remaining portion of the annual HRA fee is paid by World Gym. Payment of the annual HRA renewal fee is NOT available through payroll deduction.

Step 2:

Log on to the WellSuite Personal Wellness Profile using the link you received from us.

Once you have your user ID and password, click here to access the Online Questionnaire Website.

Click here for a step-by-step guide (with pictures) for completing the online questionnaire.

Step 3:

Attend one of the enrollment sessions. You will complete the sign up process at the enrollment session.

What is a Health Risk Assessment (HRA)?

The HRA consists of an online questionnaire and biometrics to assess your overall wellness, which is a great way to start any health program.

All participants completing the HRA receive a 14-page Personal Wellness Profile (PWP) Report.

Who needs to complete the HRA?

Participants 18 and older are required to complete the online questionnaire and biometrics. Participants under the age of 18 are are required to complete the biometrics but not the online questionnaire.

Family members can join the KeepWell@Work program. However, the CCPS employee must participate to secure family member eligibility. Family members are not eligible to receive any wellness benefits if the CCPS employee does not participate. CCPS employee participation is defined as, at minimum, completing the online questionnaire, attending an enrollment session to complete biometrics and signing the payroll deduction form. The CCPS employee must be present at the time of family member enrollment. Family members will not be permitted to join if the CCPS employee is not present.

How often do I have to complete the online questionnaire and biometrics?

Participants are required to complete the online questionnaire (if applicable) and biometrics each year in order to renew their wellness benefits, including any Gym Memberships and/or Weight Management programs.

If you completed the questionnaire (if applicable) and biometrics in Summer 2016, you are required to complete the questionnaire and biometrics again in Summer 2017. This applies to both the CCPS employee and any family members.

Failure to complete the online questionnaire and/or biometrics annually during the participants' enrollment period will result in the termination of all wellness benefits for both the CCPS employee and all family members signed up under the CCPS employee.

Effective July 1, 2016, an annual HRA renewal fee must be paid at the time of biometric completion by ALL renewing participants. The participant is responsible for covering $13 of the HRA fee (half of the $26 total HRA fee).The remaining portion of the annual HRA fee is paid by World Gym. Payment of the annual HRA renewal fee is NOT available through payroll deduction.

When do I need to complete the Online Questionnaire?

The Online Questionnaire must be completed BEFORE attending an enrollment session. Participants attending an enrollment session with an incomplete online questionnaire will be asked to return at a later date once it is completed. Questionnaires take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete on any internet-connected device. Recommended browsers include Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Difficulties have been reported with Safari and Internet Explorer.

What are Biometrics?

Biometrics include:

Height
Weight
Blood Pressure
Body Composition

Is Lab Work Included?

KeepWell does not offer lab draws through this program. A copy of lab work can be submitted for inclusion in the PWP Report. Participants interested in submitting lab work should bring a hard copy of the results to the sign-up session or fax a copy of the results to the KeepWell Center. The KeepWell Center fax number is 410-535-8397.

Who will have access to my information?

All of the information we receive from your HRA remains confidential. It is not given to any insurance companies or to your employer. After the end of the enrollment period, you will receive a notice that your report is ready to be downloaded. You can share your reports with any friends, family members or co-workers. CalvertHealth does not share the specific information from your report.
