2022 PEBTF Get Healthy Program

The Get Healthy Know Your Numbers Wellness Screening registration opened Friday, July 1 for PEBTF benefit (AFSCME and SCUPA) members. Complete your wellness screening between Aug. 1 and Dec. 31, 2022, to qualify for the savings for the 2023 premium year. Again, this year will not be an on-campus event, as PEBTF is not scheduling onsite screening events at all State System universities. There are other ways to complete your wellness screening, either at a Quest location, or by going to your doctor's office. Both options will require you to log into Quest Diagnostics through the PEBTF webpage. Please also note that the annual spousal attestation deadline is August 1, 2022.
