RE: Chicago Lives Healthy wellness program‐Complete your 12 points for the second quarter by September 30, 2016!

Dear Wellness Program Participant(s):

You must earn 12 quarterly participation points before September 30, 2016 to avoid a $50 per non‐participant increase in your monthly health care contribution.

Earn your quarterly points online today!

Step 1: Go to and click on the “Get Started” button.

Step 2: Click on the “Access Well‐Being Connect” button.

Step 3: Enter your username and password. (If you forgot your username and/or password, you can view the instructional videos specially created to help with your “Sign‐In” needs under the Important Links section at OR call Healthways at 1‐866‐556‐7671.)

Step 4: Earn 12 points online. By completing 12 online activities, you can earn ALL 12 points at one time.

If you do not earn your 12 quarterly participation points by September 30, 2016, the City of Chicago employee will receive notice of when the non‐participant increase in health care contributions will be applied to his/her pay check. Once increased health care contributions are implemented, they will be taken through the end of 2016 and you will not be eligible to enroll in the wellness program again until the 2017 benefits open enrollment period in the fall of 2016.

If you have questions about how to earn additional points, please contact Healthways at 1‐866‐556‐7671. There is a video tutorial under the Important Links section at to help you determine your total points earned quarterly and enrollment events completed for the program year.
