While the PHA may not be required for medical plan choice, newly eligible faculty and staff must complete the PHA and biometric screening to receive the $360 annual premium credit with an Ohio State medical plan.

Please note that the YP4H portal will be closed Dec. 7, 2015, to Jan. 3, 2016. No assessments can be completed during that time.

What you need to do:

  • During your onboarding process, please continue to encourage early engagement in the PHA and biometric screening so that newly eligible faculty and staff may earn the premium credit and Your Plan for Health incentives.
  • Make newly benefits-eligible faculty and staff aware of the annual September 30 deadline to maintain medical plan choice, and clarify that though it is not required this year, it will be required for them the following year.
  • All benefits-eligible faculty/staff are encouraged to complete the PHA and biometric screening even if not electing university health coverage to ensure medical plan choice at a later date.
