Frequently Asked Questions:

How will I track my completed activities? 

You will track your information via a wellness portal, ourhealthytigers, which will be powered by Propel.  If you have a spouse on your plan, your spouse will need to register separately to track their incentives.  Children are not eligible to participate in earning incentives. 

How will my information be kept confidential?

The Office of Human Resources takes its responsibility to keep your confidential information secure very seriously.  For this reason, the information provided to HR is limited to required information for use in determining HSA distribution amounts, and aggregate data for all the participants.

Will the university pay for me to purchase a fitness tracker device, or a gym membership?

No.  It is not necessary for you to purchase a fitness tracker, or gym membership, as the wellness portal allows you to self-report these activities.  If you choose to purchase a fitness tracker, the wellness portal has the ability to sync with many fitness trackers.

How will the university assess whether a program or activity qualifies for HSA incentives?

The Office of Human Resources will review and determine whether a program or activity will qualify for the HSA incentive.

Will DePauw provide flexible work hours to support these initiatives?

The Office of Human Resources will be supportive of reasonable, and equitable, accommodations to work schedules. Employees should work directly with their supervisors to discuss and determine reasonable flexible time outside of normal breaks to support wellness activities and programs on campus.

Ex: An hourly staff member may choose to attend a scheduled wellness program as they would a regular meeting during afternoon hours outside of their break time.

Will the University make accommodations if an employee or their spouse has a health condition or disability that make it inadvisable or unreasonably difficult?

Alternative accommodations will be offered to employees, please contact human resources or Jana Grimes at janagrimes@depauw.edu, to discuss.
