Let's Make 2013 a Great Year--Take the Mayo Clinic Health Assessment and Save the Entire Synod 2% on Healthcare Contributions

ELCA BOP Take It Now Button Yes, it is time to take the 2013 Wellness Assessment! Don't Delay!


Portico Benefit Services is once again offering us the opportunity to earn a 2% discount on ELCA health contributions in 2013. Last year we saved the synod and every congregation participating in the ELCA health plan $33,000!


Each congregation and organization in our synod will receive a 2% discount on health contributions if 65% of our eligible ELCA-Primary plan members complete the confidential Mayo Clinic Health Assessment between January 1 and April 30. 


If you have Portico health benefits (as a pastor, spouse, secretary, youth minister, choir director, etc), please take this health assessment. It only takes 10-20 minutes and our synod could save $33,000 again this year!

In addition, you will receive $150 in wellness dollars just for taking the assessment. Plus, if you do the follow-up activities, you can earn even more money...up to $500!

Last year, the Southern Ohio Synod reached a 74.3% participation rate, qualifying us, for the first time, for the 2% rebate. Thank you! Your participation again this year will not only start you on the road to wellness and provide money for your health care needs, but also will help put money back into ministry.
