The Living Well program helps you manage three important parts of your total well-being: health, money and life. We partner with GuidanceResources®, a leading provider of employee assistance, work/life and wellness programs, to provide you with confidential services. We also offer wellness credits — up to $1,000 in Health Savings Account contributions or $100 cash (depending on your PNC medical coverage elections) — to reward you for taking an active role in your total well-being. Refer to the Wellness Incentive Program Checklist for wellness incentive activities and eligibility, plus other important details.
With the Wellness Incentive Program, you can earn wellness credits as contributions to your Health Savings Account (HSA) or as cash in your pay, as described below. Refer to the Wellness Incentive Program Checklist for an overview of the program or read the Wellness Incentive Program Guide on Pathfinder for additional details. Spouses/domestic partners can find the guide on GuidanceResources.com (web ID: PNC). Here’s a quick look at what you can earn and what you need to do.
The following eligibility criteria must be met at the time you complete the wellness incentive activity and at the time the wellness credits are paid out.
All full-time, part-time and RSP employees who are active or away from work for less than 91 consecutive calendar days, or who are on maternity or parental leave, are eligible to earn wellness credits. New employees are eligible after they complete their PNC medical benefit elections and their elections have been automatically shared with GuidanceResources (typically about 30-40 days from the first day of employment). Spouses/domestic partners are eligible to earn wellness credits if they’re covered under a PNC medical option.
Temporary employees, contract employees and employees away from work 91 consecutive calendar days or more are not eligible (except as noted above).
In the event of the death of an eligible employee or spouse/domestic partner, wellness incentive activities completed before the date of death may be eligible for wellness credits, based on when the activities are reported. Please contact GuidanceResources at 888-999-6768 anytime for assistance.

Step 1: Complete the online, confidential Health Assessment to start earning wellness credits.
Step 2: Earn additional wellness credits by completing other qualifying wellness incentive activities. Check out the 2019 Wellness Incentive Program Checklist for details.
Step 3: Record your completed wellness incentive activities in the Incentive Tracker on GuidanceResources Online. Some activities are automatically recorded.
It typically takes four to six weeks from the time you submit or complete your activity for the wellness credit to show up in your paycheck or HSA.
All activities must be completed and entered in the Incentive Tracker by 11:59 p.m. CT Dec. 15 to qualify for 2019 wellness credits.
The Health Assessment is a free, confidential questionnaire that, once complete, provides a snapshot of your current health status and wellness behaviors. The questionnaire takes about 15 minutes to complete, after which you’ll receive a Wellness Score that highlights your level of risk for possible health issues or concerns.
To take the online Health Assessment any time and begin earning wellness credits:

Well-being coaching is available over the phone or online through GuidanceResources, PNC’s third-party partner. With telephonic coaching, you’re connected with a health coach who will help you set a personalized plan to develop new healthy habits depending on your goals. You’ll talk with your coach on a weekly basis for a few weeks, at whatever time fits your schedule. Online coaching allows you to explore a variety of well-being topics and use self-study to develop healthy habits. Tip: Both activities can earn you wellness credits, once you complete the Health Assessment.

GuidanceResources offers confidential support to help you kick the tobacco habit for good. As an added benefit, when you agree to complete a tobacco cessation program during annual enrollment, you’ll avoid paying the tobacco user contribution.
Call GuidanceResources at 888-999-6768 to sign up for and to complete one of the following approved tobacco cessation programs:
Note: If a tobacco user thinks that they are unable to meet the tobacco cessation program requirements described above, they might qualify for an opportunity to avoid the contribution by different means. To explore this option, contact GuidanceResources at 888-999-6768; counselors will work with you (and your doctor, if you wish) to find a program that is appropriate for your health status.
Even if you did not originally elect to complete an approved tobacco cessation program, or you did not complete an approved program by the deadline, it’s not too late. Contact GuidanceResources at any time during the year to start an approved tobacco cessation program. Your per-pay tobacco user contribution will be stopped when the program is complete (as soon as administratively possible), but amounts already paid cannot be refunded.
For additional information, read the FAQs on tobacco user contribution.
