Form Now Available for Preventative Health Exams

Wellness checkups need to be completed between Oct. 1, 2016, and Sept. 30, 2017 to keep insurance costs down.

APS employees and spouses/domestic partners who have health insurance through the district can keep costs down by completing a physical sometime between Oct. 1, 2016, and Sept. 30, 2017

In addition, they will need to complete an online tobacco affidavit and personal health profile between July 1 and Sept. 30.

This only applies to employees, spouses, and domestic partners -- NOT children -- insured through APS.

Again this year, APS Employee Wellness is sponsoring a wellness incentive program to help keep down insurance costs. Complete all three steps and you can keep your insurance costs from going up $25 a month ($300 a year) for individuals or $50 a month ($600 a year) for employees and their spouses/domestic partners in 2018.

Here's How to Keep Down Your Insurance Costs

1. Complete a annual preventative health exam by a primary care provider/practitioner sometime between Oct. 1, 2016, and Sept. 30, 2017.   There is a ZERO co-pay for annual preventative doctor visits!

What is a Primary Care Provider/Practitioner? 

A Primary Care Provider/Practitioner is a medical professional who agrees to manage and coordinate the care provided to a member in a managed care program and agrees to coordinate health care needs with other care providers.

Primary Care Providers May Include:

Send questions to
  • Family Practice, General Practice, Internal Medicine, Doctor of Osteopath, Nurse Practitioners or Physician’s Assistants
  • Endocrinologists
  • Cardiologists
  • Oncologists
  • Obstetrics, OB/GYN, Gynecologists

Annual exams and visits that do not qualify are:

  • Dermatology
  • Dental
  • Vision
  • Rheumatology
  • Age appropriate screenings such as mammograms and colonoscopies
  • Occupational health or workman’s compensation
  • Exams from other countries

Please contact employee.wellness@aps.edu for questions regarding qualifying preventive visits. 

 2. Complete the employee/patient portion of the Physical Engagement Form and present it to your primary care provider to complete. You or your provider's office can fax or email the completed document to the contact information provided on the form. Get the Physician Engagement Form.

APS is using the current third-party administrator, HealthAdvocate to assure confidentially and privacy. APS Employee Benefits will only receive confirmation that the exam was completed.

3. Sometime between July 1, 2017 - September 30, 2017, complete the personal health profile and tobacco affidavit via your wellness portal on the HealthAdvocate website. If you are a tobacco user, you will be encouraged to complete an online tobacco cessation program in order to qualify for the wellness incentive.
