Saint Louis University partners with The Vitality Group to manage our wellness program. Vitality is an interactive and personalized wellness program that makes it easy for you to live your healthiest life and is trusted by millions of members around the world.
Who is eligible for SLU's Wellness program?
New employees and spouses, if covered under medical insurance, have 31 days from their date of benefit eligibility to comply with the two requirements of the Vitality Wellness Plan in order to receive a discount on medical premiums.
If you have had the required tests done within ninety (90) days of your eligibility, have your physician complete the Vitality Check Form and fax/email it to Vitality to meet this requirement.
Please note: All full time employees, regardless of coverage under the medical plan, are eligible to participate in the wellness program. Spouses listed in Banner Self Service will be auto-enrolled in the Vitality program so that they, too, can reap the rewards of the wellness program.
How do I get started?
The first step is the Vitality Check bio-metric screening. Throughout the year, new employee screenings may be scheduled through MYCare physicians in Family and Community Medicine at 314-977-3500 or employees may also visit their personal physicians. During Vitality's open enrollment throughout the months of October and November, this screening may be scheduled through SSM Saint Louis University Hospital Outpatient Services on or after September 19 by calling 314-685-3398 or clicking http://www.ssmhealth.com/sluhospital/event-vitality-screenings/.
