Notice Regarding Wellness Program
The ParTNers for Health Wellness Program is a voluntary wellness program available
to all state and higher education employees and spouses enrolled in health coverage.
The program is administered according to federal rules permitting employer-sponsored
wellness programs that seek to improve employee health or prevent disease, including
the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination
Act of 2008 and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, as applicable,
among others. If you choose to participate in the wellness program, you will be asked
to complete a voluntary health questionnaire (assessment) that asks a series of questions
about your health-related activities and behaviors and whether you have or had certain
medical conditions (e.g., cancer, diabetes or heart disease). You are not required
to complete the assessment or to participate in the biometric screening or other medical
Although you are not required to complete the health questionnaire, only employees
and spouses who do so are eligible to receive cash incentives.
If you are unable to participate in any of the health-related activities required
to earn an incentive, you may be entitled to a reasonable accommodation or an alternative
standard. You may request a reasonable accommodation or an alternative standard by
contacting the ParTNers for Health Wellness Program at 888-741-3390.
The information from your health questionnaire and the results from your biometric
screening will be used to provide you with information to help you understand your
current health and potential risks. It may also be used to offer you services through
the wellness program such as weight management, Diabetes Prevention Program and other
programs. You also are encouraged to share your results or concerns with your own
Protections from Disclosure of Medical Information
We are required by law to maintain the privacy and security of your personally identifiable
health information (PHI). Although the wellness program and the State of Tennessee
may use aggregate information it collects to design a program based on identified
health risks in the workplace, the ParTNers for Health Wellness Program will never
disclose any of your personal information either publicly or to your employer, except
as necessary to respond to a request from you for a reasonable accommodation needed
for you to participate in the wellness program, or as expressly permitted by law.
Medical information that personally identifies you that is provided in connection
with the wellness program will not be provided to your supervisors or managers and
will never be used to make decisions regarding your employment.
Your health information will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or otherwise disclosed
except to the extent permitted by law to carry out specific activities related to
the wellness program, and you will not be asked or required to waive the confidentiality
of your health information as a condition of participating in the wellness program
or receiving an incentive. Anyone who receives your information for purposes of providing
you services as part of the wellness program will abide by the same confidentiality
requirements. The only individual(s) who will receive your personally identifiable
health information are the wellness vendor (nutritionists, nurses, nurse practitioners,
registered dietitians, health coaches and other healthcare professionals) and their
vendor partners (case managers with the medical and behavioral health vendors, weight
management vendor and the biometric screening vendor) in order to provide you with
services under the wellness program.
In addition, all medical information obtained through the wellness program will be
maintained separate from your personnel records, information stored electronically
will be encrypted and no information you provide as part of the wellness program will
be used in making any employment decisions. Appropriate precautions will be taken
to avoid any data breach, and in the event a data breach occurs involving information
you provide in connection with the wellness program, you will be notified immediately.
You may not be discriminated against in employment because of the medical information
you provide as part of participating in the wellness program, nor may you be subjected
to retaliation if you choose not to participate.
If you have questions or concerns regarding this notice, or about protections against
discrimination and retaliation, please contact ParTNers for Health at firstname.lastname@example.org.
