Employee Wellness at Watson Electrical
We’re excited to announce a new wellness program for 2019 with a new vendor – Extracon Science. We’ll be communicating with you via email (either your work address or personal email address) about this program throughout the year.
First! See Your Doctor and Get Your Discount:
As we discussed during the open enrollment meetings last October, this wellness program is designed to help you work with your doctor to address your health risks and prevention needs. Your task this year is to get an annual preventive visit with your primary care doctor before 9/30/19. ***REMEMBER to take the wellness form to your doctor’s appointment, which your doctor will fill out and send into Extracon, the new the wellness vendor. When Extracon receives this form, you will be eligible to earn a discount on your health plan premium for 2020.
First things first. You’ll need to register and set your password on the Extracon Wellness Portal. To register, go to the Wellness Portal look for the “New User Sign Up” box. Follow the directions onscreen to register and set your password. You will need your Employee ID number and your last name to register. Once registered, your user name should default to your email address (Watson or personal). If you don’t have a Watson email address, the email you used during the health benefits open enrollment process will be used.
Once registered, you will see a menu on the left side of the page. Click on Program Information. Once the page loads, click on the “Get the Form” button. There you can download a copy of the Wellness Fitness Form. Complete your Name, Phone Number, Employee ID Number and sign the consent for release before your doctor’s visit.
Visit your doctor for your annual physical or preventive care. Be sure to take the Wellness Fitness Form with you when you go for your annual physical, preventive care, or continuing care follow-up. Have the doctor complete and submit the form.
