PEEHIP Wellness Program

Team Up for Health

PEEHIP is working with ActiveHealth and the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) to provide members with a new and improved Team Up for Health wellness program in 2015. 

You can take part in Team Up for Health if you are covered under PEEHIP's Blue Cross Blue Shield hospital medical group #14000 plan and included in one of the following groups:

  • Active employees and their covered spouses
  • Non-Medicare eligible retirees
  • Non-Medicare eligible spouses covered on retiree contracts.

Team up for Health is only available for the previously listed members and covered spouses, so children are not eligible to participate.

Beginning October 2015, eligible PEEHIP members will begin paying a $50 monthly wellness premium if they choose not to participate or fail to complete their requirements by the deadline of May 31, 2015. This new premium applies to both eligible members and their covered spouses, resulting in a potential combined $100 monthly additional premium. Members can learn more about how to earn a waiver of this new premium at Earn the Wellness Premium Waiver.

Team Up for Health Services

Team Up for Health offers PEEHIP members the following free health and wellness services for living happier, healthier and more satisfying lives:

Wellness Screenings

PEEHIP members have access to one free annual wellness screening from the Alabama Department of Public Health. These screenings are provided at your worksite and local health department. Visit the ADPH Wellness Calendar or contact a Wellness County Contact for details. Annual screenings can also be provided by a member's doctor using the Healthcare Provider Screening form.

This form must be completed and faxed or mailed to ADPH by your healthcare provider in order to be accepted. Incomplete forms will not be accepted. If you have already obtained a screening at your healthcare provider, simply have your doctor's office completely fill out the Healthcare Provider Screening form, and then ask for it to be sent by mail or fax to ADPH.
