Know Your Numbers in 2021
Choosing to adopt a healthy lifestyle is a smart move. Not only will you enjoy a greater sense of wellness, you’ll increase energy, reduce stress and find balance in your life.
WellBAMA is here to help you, every step of the way.
WellBAMA is the University of Alabama’s signature wellness program for faculty and staff. Our dedicated team of health and wellness professionals is here to help you understand your current level of health, identify goals, and provide you with the programs and resources you need to achieve those goals.
Earn WellBAMA Rewards – WellBAMA Rewards pays you to participate and improve your health
Taking care of your health is more important than ever. Participating in your annual WellBAMA health screening also includes a financial WellBAMAReward. Eligible faculty and staff will earn a $50 gift card immediately at the time of the screening.
WellBAMA Health Screenings will return to campus fall semester with continued safety measures in place. The University of Alabama will require face coverings indoors on campus, where and when distancing is not possible. This requirement applies to everyone, regardless of vaccination status. With this new requirement, masks must be worn in classrooms and classroom buildings, regardless of distancing; in personal meeting spaces, such as meetings with faculty and advisors; when gathering in common spaces, such as the Student Center; and on campus transportation.
You may also have your health care provider complete a Medical Qualification Form instead of attending a campus WellBAMA health screening event.
Earn an additional $50 when you complete a qualifying program AND attend a wellness class. Payment for the additional $50 will only be issued to those that are full-time, benefit-eligible employees at the time of Reward distribution in December 2021.
Qualifying program and wellness class requirements must be completed by December 1 to be paid in December 2021.
- FINAL DEADLINE: Program requirements completed by December 31 are paid in January 2022.
Terminated or departed employees are not eligible to receive the Reward at the end of the year. Retired employees that complete all requirements by the date of retirement will receive their Reward at the end of that current year. All Rewards are a taxable benefit.
Unsure if you have completed all of the Rewards requirements?
The online wellness portal now displays your live progress for the year so you know what you’re missing in order to receive your WellBAMA Rewards.
You may receive program credit for participation in wellness programs (Weight Watchers @ Work, BCBS-AL disease management program, etc.) other than programs facilitated by Wellness and Work-Life. Complete a Qualifying Program Self Report Form for approval.
