Caring for Your Whole Self
Thousands of leaders across this church have made it an annual habit to take stock of their well-being, work to strengthen it, and earn wellness dollars. In 2017, Portico invites you to participate in our Live Well Challenge.
This year, we encourage you take an even more holistic view. Consider the ways your physical, financial, and emotional health contribute to your overall well-being, then take steps to improve and create meaningful change in your life.
Complete the Live Well Challenge and you can earn up to $400 wellness dollars — and a healthier lifestyle.
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 two weeks of earning them.

Register & Complete Your Health Assessment by Sept. 30: Earn $100
First, you’ll need to complete a quick, one-time registration to begin this year’s Healthyroads health assessment, which replaces the Mayo Clinic assessment offered in the past. Then, you’ll enter your numbers — height, weight, waist circumference, cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar — and answer some questions about your health and lifestyle habits. Upon completion, you’ll see a scorecard summarizing your health strengths and risks. As always, your individual information and results are confidential.
