The University of Missouri Total Rewards program also invites you to join Healthy for Life, an incentive-based wellness program designed to help you actively manage your health. By completing a personal health assessment and health screening, primary subscribers to the UM Health Care plan will receive $100 in a tax-favored account to use for medical expenses in 2012 Benefit Plan year.

In a partnership with Cerner Health, Healthy for Life provides straightforward tools to help you work toward better health. You can participate in the program now. It’s simple. If you participated in the Miners on the Move program, you will need to create a new account. Based on your feedback, Cerner Health has made the account signup process much easier. Here’s how to get started:

  1. Create your Cerner Health account by visiting www.healthyforlife.umsystem.edu.
  2. Enter your email address and join the program.
  3. Complete your personal health assessment: an online questionnaire that helps you understand your health risks and provides you with resources to improve your well-being.
  4. Schedule your free health screening at a convenient time and location on campus. Your health screening will include cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, height and weight. If your screening is before noon, fasting for nine hours is recommended, but not required (six hours if pregnant). Drinking 64 ounces of water the day before is also suggested.
