TU Wellness & Annual Health Incentive

The mission of TU Wellness is to create and maintain a culture of holistic health and wellness for all employees through health education and wellness activities. Employees enrolled in our medical plans are eligible to earn incentives by participating in the TU Wellness Program. Tulane's Wellness platform, WellRight, is an easy way to learn more about your health and earn incentives. 

Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) reimburses you with incentive dollars earned from participating in the TU Wellness Annual Health Incentive for eligible medical expenses This account is only paired with the HRA medical plan.  While all Tulane medical plan participants can participate in the annual wellness incentive, HRA plan members earnings will be made available via their Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) provided by HealthEquity.

  • A full-time employee scheduled to work with the university for no less than 7 months
  • A part-time employee working at least 50% of a full-time schedule and expected to work no less than 7 months

Once you have received your HealthEquity debit card, you may use that card to pay for applicable medical expenditures with the funds you have earned. Depending on your medical plan election, the funds earned in your account each year will carry over and be subject to IRS guidelines.

Note: For the HRA plan, up to $500 will rollover into the new year. For the HDHP/HSA plan, all funds roll over from year to year. For the POS plan, gift cards need to be purchased by the end of the plan year.
