Premium Rewards

Employees who are covered by Anthem COVA Care and Aetna COVA HealthAware plans are eligible for the Premium Rewards Program. Participants receive a discount of $17 per month. Spouses on the plan are also eligible for a $17 per month discount. 

To receive Premium Rewards, visit the COVA Care or COVA HealthAware plan website to access your online health assessment.

The reward will be effective the first of the month, approximately six to eight weeks, after the online health assessment is completed and will continue through the end of the plan year, which is June 30 each year.
