2018 Live Well Challenge

Live Well Challenge

ELCA-Primary members and spouses, Portico’s 2018 Live Well Challenge invites you to strengthen your physical and financial well-being, and earn up to $400 wellness dollars.

How to Complete This Year’s Challenge

Complete Your Biometric Screening by Nov. 30: Earn $200

This year, Portico is offering a more objective way to assess your physical health. A biometric screening gives you the facts about your health strengths and risks, so that you can discuss potential concerns with your doctor and make the right choices for you. Submit basic physical measurements (height, weight, blood pressure, waist circumference) and a blood sample, and in return, you’ll receive detailed results in a personalized booklet. Visit one of 2,200 Quest Patient Service Centers for your screening (by Nov. 30), or have your doctor gather your information and submit a form to Quest (by Nov. 15).

Save or Implement a Retirement Plan With Your Spouse by Nov. 30: Earn $200 Each

Creating and updating a retirement savings plan over time is how people save for the retirement they want. Portico’s Retirement Planning Tool is designed to help you create a customized retirement savings plan by combining information in our system with information you provide. Annually, it helps you determine if adjustments are needed, like increasing your savings, reallocating assets, or changing your planned retirement date. While the tool is easy to use, we know retirement planning can feel complicated and encourage you to cobrowse the tool with one of our in-house financial planners, at no out-of-pocket cost to you.

  • Plan members and spouses with ELCA-Primary health benefits each earn $200 wellness dollars by creating a joint plan together using the sponsored member’s myPortico account
  • Before you begin, gather financial statements for retirement accounts you hold outside the ELCA Retirement Plan
  • If you saved or implemented a plan last year, the tool retains non-ELCA account information you previously entered
  • Save or implement your new or updated plan to earn your wellness dollars

What Are Wellness Dollars?

Wellness dollars help you pay for eligible out-of-pocket medical, mental health, and dental costs, including doctor bills, glasses or contact lenses, and prescription drugs. Wellness dollars are credited to your personal wellness account or health savings account (HSA) within approximately two weeks of earning them.
