Don't miss the 2014 Public Health Week activities!

Attached is the schedule of activities to be held during Department of Health's 2014 National Public Health Week, April 6, 2014 to  April 12, 2014. The Health department will be offering screenings and presentations which will surely be of interest to all Gov employees, especially as we try to assist them to avoid the HRA penalty developed by the GESC Health Insurance Board.   

Public screening will be offered on Tuesday, April 8 (STC) and Wednesday April 9 (STT).

For more information, please contact the Public Health Office at the Department of Health.  Click here for the flyer.

Earn Cash by completing your HRA!

The Division of Personnel is advising all employees and all retirees under the age of 65 (who are the primary plan member and maintain health insurance coverage under the Executive Branch’s Group Health Insurance Plan, including those employees/retirees at non-profit organizations), that the Government Employee’s Service Commission (GESC) Health Insurance Board (as the sponsor of the insurance plan’s wellness program) has established a new rule which requires those members to fully complete their annual Health Risk Assessment (HRA) on Cigna’s website,

The HRA must be fully completed to include actual biometric numbers for glucose, blood pressure, and cholesterol.  The deadline to complete the HRA for the fiscal year 2014 cycle is 11:59 pm on Sunday, September 14, 2014.  Those employees and retirees who fail to complete the HRA by the established deadline will be subjected to a biweekly insurance charge of $ 20.83 in fiscal year 2015 in addition to their regular health insurance premium.  (Please note this requirement is only for the active employees and retirees under 65 who are currently covered by Cigna and not their dependents.)  Click HERE to download the form to help you collect the mandatory biometric information from your health care provider.

A Celebration

Each and every day, public servants face unique challenges in the workplace. While the need for vital government services continues to grow, we increasingly ask our public servants to do more with less. Public Servants perform a myriad of tasks that we may all take for granted every day. They provide essential services and benefits including disease prevention, health care, public safety and security, securing our waters, providing education care and so much more.


Public Service Recognition Week is an appropriate time for us to applaud their efforts and to reflect on the value of public service, and give our civil servants the praise that so many richly deserve, but so seldom receive. They deserve our support and appreciation. With sincere gratitude for their important contributions and sacrifice, for putting service before self, we take this week to say THANK YOU.
