PEEHIP Wellness Program

Notice Regarding Wellness Program

PEEHIP is working with ActiveHealth and the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) to provide members with the new and improved Team Up for Health wellness program. This confidential and secure health and wellness benefit provides members a wide variety of tools for both monitoring and managing their health to help them achieve their personal health goals.

Team Up for Health

You are required to participate 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.

Effective October 2015, the eligible PEEHIP members listed above are charged a $50 monthly wellness premium if they choose not to participate or fail to complete their requirements by the deadline of August 31 of each year. This wellness 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

Take part in a Wellness Screening between August 1, 2017, and August 31, 2018, for credit toward earning the Wellness Premium Waiver.

PEEHIP members have access to one free annual wellness screening from the ADPH, with an August 1 annual restart date. This means that every August 1, PEEHIP members can receive a new free wellness screening from ADPH. These screenings are provided at your worksite and local health department. Visit the ADPH Wellness Calendar or contact a Wellness County Contact for details. One annual screening can also be obtained from your primary care physician using the Healthcare Provider Screening form. Screenings obtained from your primary care physician are normally billed as a routine office visit, and under your PEEHIP Blue Cross Blue Shield benefits, only one routine visit is covered per calendar year. This means that you can receive one wellness screening at no copay per calendar year from your primary care physician. Any additional routine office visits in one calendar year will reject and you will be responsible for the cost of the claim.

The Healthcare Provider Screening 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.
