Time is running out to Complete your Chicago Lives Healthy Well-Being Assessment (WB5)

A reminder letter is going out this week for those who have not done their Well Being 5 (WB5) assessment (data as of February 16, 2017).  This is the computer based questionnaire that will take less than 15 minutes to complete.  Everyone who is a participant in the Chicago Lives Healthy wellness program needs to get it done.  The deadline for completion is February 28, 2017.

There is now a reminder in place for those employees who have access to the City system.  The reminder pops-up when they sign on.

You can help by reminding people as well.

Below is the letter going out to those who have not yet done their WB5.


Healthway’s records indicate that as of February 16, 2017, you have not yet completed your Well-Being Assessment® (WB5) for the Chicago Lives Healthy wellness program. The deadline to complete your WB5 is February 28, 2017. This deadline will not be extended.

The WB5 is a simple, confidential questionnaire that looks at your lifestyle habits and current health to see what may be helping or hurting your overall well-being. Simply answer a few focused questions and get instant feedback in your Well-Being Report, including suggestions on ways to increase your well-being. All questions are simple to understand and easy to answer. It will take about 15 minutes to complete the questionnaire.

What if I don’t complete the WB5? If you do not complete the WB5 requirement by the February 28, 2017 deadline, the City of Chicago employee will incur a $50 per non-participant increase in his/her monthly health care contribution.
