And while you're making those small changes, why not get points toward health rewards?

Current Health Rewards Available
The current rewards period started January 1, 2014. All requirements must be completed by October 31, 2014. This year's health rewards include:


Step One: Take the Voluntary Health Questionnaire.

Take it now

This is an online assessment that can help you know your health risks. The health questionnaire is completely voluntary, but if you want to earn health rewards, you are required to take it before you can start earning points. You will be asked to provide certain health-related numbers when you take the questionnaire. You can answer 'don't know,' and still receive meaningful results and satisfy the completion requirement. Learn about resources to get your numbers.

Step Two: Complete Activities. Earn 250 Points.

Review the qualifying wellness activities listed on the tabs above. Each time you complete an activity you'll earn points. Accumulate 250 points by October 31, 2014, to qualify. There's no limit to the combination of activities you can complete; it's up to you. Many of the activities require advance scheduling and time to complete, so be sure to allow plenty of time to accumulate the required points before the deadline. Points do not roll over from year to year.

Are you eligible to participate? U.S. payroll employees who are eligible for Chevron's health plans may earn points. In addition you must meet the eligibility requirements at the time you receive the rewards. Read more.

If have a health condition and don't think you can meet a standard for qualifying for the health rewards, you might be eligible for an opportunity to earn the same reward by different means. Send an email to wellness@chevron.com and we will work with you to find alternative activities that are right for you in light of your health status.
