Act Now! A 2% Discount Awaits Your Congregation and $150 in Wellness Dollars Can Be Yours IF You Take the Mayo Clinic Health Assessment Soon

How much money does your congregation spend on health care insurance for your church staff and their spouses? If you could shave off 2% of that expense for all of 2013, would you do it?

Please ask your church staff whether they have taken the online 2013 Health Assessment. It takes about 20 minutes, and is very easy to do. It's open to rostered leaders, their spouses, and any church employees who have primary health coverage through Portico Benefit Services (formerly the ELCA Board of Pensions).


The results as of February 28 indicated that our synod has reached 35.8% toward our goal. We need 52 more participants in order to reach our goal of 65% participation. If we reach our goal, your congregation can save 2% on healthcare contributions for your church staff.
