January 2013: HEP Bonus Payment in Feb. 22nd Paycheck If you, or a family member on your State medical insurance, have one of the five chronic conditions and complied with the requirements of the HEP disease-management program, you’re entitled to a $100 check.The five chronic conditions are Diabetes, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder or Asthma, Hypertension, Hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol), or Coronary Artery Disease (heart disease/heart failure).
The educational component of the disease-management program was not implemented in this first year. Participation in the educational component (talking to a medical professional on the telephone about your chronic condition) will be required for future $100 payments. The insurance company will initiate the telephone conversation.
There is only one $100 payment per eligible policy holder (or household) per year.
If you, or a family member on your State medical insurance, have one of the five chronic conditions and complied with the requirements of the HEP disease-management program, you are entitled to a $100 bonus that was to be included in your Feb. 22 paycheck.
For those active state employees who thought they should have received a HEP Chronic Care Bonus, the Comptroller’s Office has set up process for members to report non-payment.
Employees should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 860-702-3560 (this is a voice mail box for HEP issues).
Be sure to email or leave in the voice mailbox their name, employee ID number, phone number and indicate that they did not receive a HEP payment.
The Office of the State Comptroller has informed us that the chronic conditions of children did not qualify families for a $100 HEP check. A meeting of labor and management will be held at the Comptroller's Office today to review this situation.
