CHARLESTON, WV – Gov. Jim Justice announced today that he has listened to numerous concerns about the newest version of PEIA’s Healthy Tomorrows Initiative and as a result he has asked PEIA to take a softer approach to its wellness goals as they continue to educate and inform on the benefits of PEIA’s wellness initiatives.
The newest tool of the PEIA Healthy Tomorrows Program, the addition of Humana Go365, will be 100% voluntary for PEIA policyholders with no penalties tied to this program.
Gov. Justice said he has been assured that PEIA can remove the proposed premium penalty of $25 per month with minimal financial impact to the plan.
“We needed to get the $25 per month penalty removed,” said Gov. Justice. “I understand the challenges our families are struggling with today and this was the right thing to do.”
