Wellness Wise

NEW!!! Living Well Health Manager, powered by WebMD.

The Living Well Health Manager, powered by WebMD, is a new online resource available to all UT SELECT members (you, your spouse and dependent over the age of 18) that gives you the tools; information and support to help you – and your family – live a healthier lifestyle.
Start by registering for a private Living Well Health Manager account, available online at www.webmdhealth.com/ut.  Once you register, the next step is to complete the confidential WebMD HealthQuotientSM (HQ) questionnaire to find how healthy you really are and to reduce your risk of illness.

DON’T WAIT - Complete your HQ by August 14, 2009 and WebMD will automatically send you a cool eco-friendly stainless steel ‘Living Well Health Manager, powered by WebMD’ water bottle.  Your dependents are also eligible to receive a free water bottle, while supplies last, when they complete the HQ. Forward this email to your covered dependents and have them complete their HQ by August 14.
Important Note About HQ – If you do NOT have your most recent biometric data, including preventive screenings and exams, you can still complete the HQ and receive your free WebMD water bottle. Fill in as much about your health as you can today – you can always come back and update the questionnaire later.  At the end of the HQ, you must click the button ‘SUBMIT’ to fully complete your HQ.

Start Living Well – register online at www.webmdhealth.com/ut and complete your HQ now!
