Thoughts from a Buckeye Wellness Innovator

-by Tammy Jones, educator, family and consumer sciences, Pike County

Are you reaping all of the many benefits of being an Ohio State employee? I sure am – starting with premium credit, HRA credit, and PulseCash! Just for participating, I earn a $300 credit toward my health care premium, $400 in HRA credits that roll over if not used each year, and $100 in PulseCash which I redeem for a $100 gift card at the end of each year.

I love all the incentives that are available, and I make sure to collect all of them throughout the year! I challenge you to do the same; and it is not too late to start earning this year. This link will tell you what you need to do – visit This is open to all employees and their spouses enrolled in the Ohio State medical plan; AND even employees who not enrolled can earn the PulseCash!
