The PEIA Finance Board voted to implement the three-year Healthy Tomorrows initiative for active employees and non-Medicare retirees in the PEIA PPB Plans.
PEIA is investing in prevention for the sake of the policyholders and the PEIA plan. When faced with the rising cost of healthcare and a population that is living longer, PEIA wants to promote healthier living, healthier lifestyles and policyholders that are aware of health concerns in their own bodies.
PEIA members were encouraged to choose a doctor to build a working relationship with in year one of the Healthy Tomorrows Program.
Annual checkups and general Lipid Panels are provided free of charge by PEIA for every policyholder.
During Open Enrollment (April 2 – May 15, 2015), policyholders had to designate a primary care physician (PCP) to avoid a $500 deductible penalty for Plan Year 2016.
If you are enrolled in either the Medical Home or Comprehensive Care Partnership program, you have already named a primary care physician and do not have to take any additional steps to meet this requirement.

Policyholders must see their primary care physician after reporting their doctor’s name to PEIA. Your primary care physician must test your blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol and waist circumference and report it to PEIA on the Healthy Tomorrows Reporting Form before the end of Open Enrollment (May 15, 2016) .
