UA Wellness Program
The UA Wellness Program provides a variety of wellness activities. The University of Alaska is currently in between wellness program providers. In the meantime, it's important to remember the many programs, benefits and features of the UA Choice health plan that work to keep you healthy, help you lead a healthier lifestyle and help catch serious healthcare problems early before they become complicated and hard to treat.
Preventative Benefits / Screenings
Each plan offered in the UA Choice health plan provides a comprehensive preventative benefit, including routine annual physicals or checkups, immunizations, and screenings for many types of cancer and other conditions including type 2 diabetes. A full list of the preventative benefits offered under the plan can be found here.
The preventive benefit does not have a deductible and the plan pays 100% of allowable charges. This means that even if you're on the high deductible or consumer-driven health plans, you can access these services with no out of pocket cost to you.
