2007 Wellness Fairs

6/10/2007 | By: Staff Report  |

PEBP offers Wellness Fairs to all Self-funded PPO Plan participants age 18 years or older. The fairs are designed to provide participants and their covered dependents with convenient health screenings and information related to healthy living. Services received at one of the Wellness Fairs eliminates the cost of an office visit to your physician and allows you to receive multiple services at one convenient location.

The cost of services for Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test, flu and pneumonia shots will be applied to each participant's $2,500 Wellness Benefit.

Last year, in an effort to reduce the long waiting lines at the Wellness Fairs, Hometown Health Partners introduced the appointment hotline in several locations. Overall, the appointments were successful in alleviating the long wait times. This year, the appointments are being expanded to other locations and before the scheduled date of the fair.
