The Premium Discount Program is available to benefit-eligible employees and their spouse covered under Miami's health plan. Completing program requirements every calendar year allows the employee to qualify for health premium discounts for the following calendar year.
Employees(and covered spouse) hired, or becoming benefit-eligible, on or after January 1 of the current year, automatically receive the discount for the current year, but must complete the program in the current year for the discount in the following year.
Employees (and covered spouse) hired, or becoming benefit-eligible, on or after July 1 of each year will automatically receive the discount for the following year.
Employees and spouses enrolled in Miami University's healthcare plan are eligible to receive a premium discount. Individuals that cannot complete the base steps may have their physician submit a Medical Exemption (PDF) to qualify for a portion of the premium discount. Please contact Benefits & Wellness at 513-529-3492 if you have any questions regarding the Medical Exemption.

Do I need to wait an entire year (365 days) before having my next biometric health screening or my mammogram done?
No. Miami’s plan covers preventive screenings once per calendar year. So, even if you had your last screening on October 28, 2015, you can have it done this calendar year at any time and it will be covered as preventive.
What if I already regularly have my blood drawn by my physician or a specialist on a routine basis?
The Biometric Health Screening form (PDF) can be used in this case. You complete the first section and your physician completes the Clinical Lab Values section. You then submit the form to TriHealth as directed on the form by November 15, 2016.
What if I can’t complete a requirement for medical reasons?
If you or your spouse are unable to complete a step because your physician has advised against doing so, have your physician complete the Medical Exemption form found in your Healthy Miami account or in the HR Forms Library on the left. The Medical Exemption (PDF) does not apply to the Tobacco Free Certification.
Once I have completed a step, how long will it take before a point is uploaded into my Healthy Miami account?
1. PCP visit and preventive screening points will be uploaded based on the process time of your claim. It may take up to 3 months for these points from UMR to show up in your account. Make sure you complete the Health Plan Provider Consent in your Healthy Miami account as soon as possible so that UMR has permission to upload your points.
2. Tobacco Free Certification point will be uploaded at the end of the month in which the certification has been completed or the Miami-approved tobacco cessation class has been completed.
3. Biometric Health Screening point will be uploaded at the end of the month in which it was completed, or the following month, depending on how late in the month it is completed.
4. Health Plan Provider Consent point will be uploaded at the end of the month in which it was completed.
5. Personal Health Assessment point will be uploaded immediately upon completion.
If you have any questions, please call the Cerner Wellness support team at 1-888-252-8150 (Available 24 hours per day, 365 days per year).
