To participate in the checkups, active, UNM benefits-eligible employees and their spouse/domestic partners must be actively enrolled in a UNM Medical Plan during the onsite preventive health checkups (July 8 - October 18, 2019) and continuously enrolled through the pay period(s) when the premium credit will be applied (late fall 2019).
Yes, as long as you continue to meet the eligibility requirements listed above. You can receive a medical premium credit this year regardless of whether you participated last year. This year’s credit applies to your medical premiums for 2019-2020. We encourage you to participate in the onsite preventive health checkups and take advantage of the premium credit on a yearly basis.
The preventive health checkups will include tests measuring your overall health. Tests include blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, BMI, waist circumference, and more. Nurses will collect lab accurate bloodwork via a finger stick, which is processed onsite. Once you receive your results you will tele-consult with a board certified Nurse Practitioner. For more information, watch the “Why Sign Up?” video from Catapult Health:

There is no out of pocket cost to you for the health checkup. Catapult will submit a claim for preventive services to your UNM Medical Plan TPA, who may send you an Explanation of Benefits. This preventive services claim will be fully covered by your UNM Medical Plan; there is no payment necessary on your part for the preventive health checkup.

Yes. Each individual participating in the onsite preventive health checkups will need their own appointment. If both you and your spouse/domestic partner wish to participate, each of you will need your own appointment under your own name. When you visit the sign up page, click “Make a New Appointment” to create the appointment for your spouse/domestic partner.
No, you do not need to use leave time for checkup appointments, including travel to and from the checkup site. In most instances, we would not expect the appointment and travel time to exceed 1 hour. As always, work with your supervisor to ensure work responsibilities are properly covered.
If you already received a health checkup from your doctor or you wish to visit your primary care provider to receive testing between October 20, 2018 and October 18, 2019, you can submit your results using the Primary Care Provider Form. Your doctor will fill out the form and YOU must submit the completed PCP form between June 3, 2019 and October 18, 2019. THE FORM MUST BE POSTMARKED NO LATER THAN 5:00 pm (MST) on October 18, 2019, in order to qualify for the premium credit.
If you would prefer to submit your Primary Care Provider Form to Catapult Health via secure email, contact their customer support team at 877-234-1840 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will receive a confirmation email once your form has been received and processed. If you do not receive this confirmation e-mail within two weeks of submission, contact Catapult Health at 877-234-1840 or email@example.com.
For 2019, the credit is $200 for eligible employees and $100 for eligible spouse/domestic partners. After you complete your preventive health checkup, you will receive a reduction on the medical premium in your paycheck. Depending on your situation, the credit may be spread across multiple paychecks until it is fully used up.
We want to be sure everyone who participates receives their credit in a timely manner. Help us make sure you get yours by following these steps:
Complete your screening or submit your Primary Care Provider Form to Catapult Health between June 3, 2019 and October 18, 2019.
If you print and use a Primary Care Provider Form, after you and your physician complete the form, submit the form personally to Catapult Health. Check to see that you receive a confirmation email from Catapult within two (2) weeks of submission. Be sure to print a copy of your PCP and the confirmation email for your records.
You must continue to be enrolled in your UNM medical plan at the time of payment (late fall 2019) to receive the medical premium credit.
Watch your paycheck(s) in November and December 2019. One or more of these paychecks should show an adjusted amount for your medical premium. You will see a reduced deduction for your medical premium.
Be aware that your full medical premium credit may be spread across multiple months, depending on your per-pay-period premium amount.
If you meet all the criteria for the medical premium credit, and do not receive a November or December premium credit, you must notify UNM Human Resources at at 505-277-6947 on or before January 15, 2020. We will review your eligibility and participation to ensure that any necessary corrections for credit are implemented.
