How does this form work?

  • This form allows employees the opportunity to earn the discount through biometrics, preventive care visits, and Health Yourself activities.
  • Employees must earn 100 points and return this form to Jess Brown by May 31st to qualify for the discount.
  • If you earn over 150 points, you will be eligible for a prize drawing.

Are you ready to start earning the discount?

  • The easiest place to start is with a Health Yourself  blood draw- this helps us map out how you can earn all 100 points, and ensures your biometrics are completely filled out (this is a common place for error with your doctor). Doing your draw with HY is free to you.
  • This year is a full fasting blood draw- watch for more information regarding our fall blood draws at BRH & CBJ departments from September to November.
  • If you are already earning points from activities (right on!), you can print off the form and start keeping track for yourself. I will keep track of your activities in a smartsheet, where you can log in and double check that we have the same record.

Employee Assistance Program

The CBJ has contracted ComPsych® to provide employees and their families with support, resources, and information on a confidential basis—at no charge. Through this benefit employees and all household members (regardless of their benefit status) are eligible to receive on demand telephone counseling, as well as up to 6 free sessions per issue with a local counselor.

To get started, visit the ComPsych® website, or to speak with a ComPsych representative by calling 1-800-295-9059 (TDD: 1-800-697-0353). When you call or set up your online account use the following information:

  • Company: City of Juneau
  • Company ID: CITYJEAP2

For more urgent situations, you can call and speak to a counselor on the phone immediately, 24/7.

If you wish to work with a local counselor for your 6 free sessions per issue, when you call you can either ask if a specific counselor you have in mind is contracted with them, describe your situation and receive a list of recommended counselors based on the issue, or ask for the full list of contracted counselors and choose from it.

Premera Nurseline: 1800.841.8343 – This is the number for Premera’s FREE 24-hour Nurseline. If you or a loved one is not feeling well, but you’re unsure if it is an emergency, give the Nurseline a call. You will speak to a registered nurse who can provide around the clock health-care treatment recommendations for injuries or illness’s or answer questions about health-related issues..

Upcoming Events

Comprehensive Blood draws: These are available for our benefit- eligible employees at CBJ, Bartlett, and JSD admin group as well as spouses on our insurance plan. Tests include a chemistry & lipid panel, CBC and vitamin D tests. New to this year, we added on HbA1C, TSH, and ApoB tests. This bloodwork can help you catch and address health issues before they become emergent. As a bonus- when we offer them in house, they save our health plan a lot of money, while offering them completely free to you. Win-win-win! Ready to book yours? Click here. Note: you only book 2 months out, so check back later for more fall, winter, and spring dates.

Pavitts is offering us a special deal right now for our employees: they are dropping the 1 year commitment-so you can opt for month to month- and giving us 20% off the EFT rate for individual, couple, and family memberships for CBJ/BRH/JSD admin employees and their immediate families (spouses and children up to age 18). If you are interested you can ask them for a free week trial.
