HealthMedia® Succeed™ Health Risk Assessment

The health risk assessment offered through Clarian Healthy Results takes the guesswork out of finding credible, pertinent health information on the Internet and elsewhere. After completing a 20-25 minute confidential health history and questionnaire, participants receive a report with results of their health status and personalized feedback. The assessment is offered to employees and covered spouses annually so their health status can be monitored year to year.

Visit www.indiana.edu/~uhrs/benefits/health_risk.html for step-by-step instructions on how to complete the health risk assessment.

After completing the HealthMedia Succeed Health Risk Assessment, participants have access to personalized online health programs about the topics listed in Web Wise below.

For details, see the Open Enrollment packet and visit www.indiana.edu/~uhrs/benefits/index.html.


IU Tax Saver Benefit (TSB) Plan

The IU TSB plan is designed to save tax dollars when a participant pays for IRS-eligible expenses. When salary contributions are made into one or both TSB expense reimbursement accounts (health care and dependent care), the contributions are not subject to federal, state, local, or FICA taxes. This results in substantial savings to the employee. Employees enrolled in the HDHP PPO and Medical Savings Plan should note that the IRS limits claims that can be paid from the TSB account.
