Registration for Spouses
Spouses who are registering for the screening event should use the last four digits of the SSN for the employee (primary account holder) to create their account. Please see the registration instructions link for complete details.
If you plan to add your spouse to your medical plan during open enrollment, then your spouse will have the option to submit a Physician Form beginning in January 2017 once the spouse is active on the plan. Please email Leighann Boyer (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information.
Physician Form Manual Submission Option
If you are unable to attend one of the on-site health screenings, you may submit a physician form for a visit between July 2016 and December 8, 2016. Please note that this process has been revised this year and you must register online for this option (see registration link above). Your physician form must be submitted by December 15, 2016.
2017 Wellness Incentive Program
If you are enrolled in the Roanoke College health insurance plans and participate in the wellness program, you can earn an incentive! For 2017, the incentive amounts are being reviewed and will be announced later this year. Participation in the screening event will still count 100 points and you will earn the first earning period incentive.
For your convenience, the Roanoke County/Salem health Department will provide FREE flu vaccines during the screening in the ballroom on Tuesday, October 11th from 7:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Please note that you MUST bring your insurance card. The Health Department will bill your insurance company whether you have Roanoke College or other health insurance coverage. All Roanoke College Anthem health insurance plans cover flu vaccines at 100% as part of the preventive benefits so you will have no out of pocket expense.

2016 Incentive Program
If you are enrolled in the Roanoke College health insurance plans and participate in the wellness program, you can earn an incentive! The wellness program year is divided into earning periods in which participants complete certain items to earn points towards receiving the incentive stipend payment for that earning period. Please see the Roanoke College Wellness Program Summary for complete details on the wellness stipend incentives which are paid on the last pay period of each quarter.
