Physical Well-being

Taking care of your body, understand and manage your health conditions, and thrive.  Physical health is about maintaining a healthy lifestyle and staying active. Simple lifestyle choices like regular exercise, good nutrition, and sleeping habits can help you manage and prevent diseases, and your ability to heal naturally. Our Northrop Grumman benefits give you access to health coaches and discounted gym memberships, and also offer an incentive program to reward you for your good behaviors, preventive care coverage at 100% and ongoing support to keep you on the right path.

Good choices you make about your health and lifestyle can have a big impact on your life – and on your health care spending. That’s why Northrop Grumman offers an incentive to get an annual physical – detecting changes to your health now can prevent bigger issues down the road.

Highlights of the Well-being Incentive

If you’re enrolled in a Northrop Grumman Health Plan medical plan*, you and your covered spouse or domestic partner may each earn a $500 well-being incentive in three steps.

  1. Complete a health assessment on Engage by Sept. 30
  2. Get an annual physical by Sept. 30 (or get a virtual check-up through Quest, but order the at-home kit through Engage by Aug. 1 to ensure it’s completed by Sept. 30)
  3. Verify activities show complete on Engage by Oct. 31

If you’re enrolled in a high-deductible health plan, you’ll receive the incentive as a contribution to your Fidelity HSA. If you're not eligible to contribute to an HSA or don’t enroll in an HSA-eligible plan, you'll receive the incentive in your paycheck as taxable income.

Kaiser plan participants must also accept Kaiser’s Wellness Program Agreement on KP.org/engage by Sept. 30.

The Wellbeing Incentives FAQs provide more details including information about the annual physical requirement and virtual check-up options, the Engage Health Assessment and how you receive the incentive.

*Participants in the HMSA, Kaiser Hawaii and Tricare Supplement plans are not eligible for the well-being incentive. Baltimore and Sunnyvale-represented employees are eligible for the Annual Physical Incentive Program.  Review Annual Physical Incentive FAQs for program details

CVS Caremark Prescription Drug Plan Resources

Livongo for Diabetes Care Program

Livongo is a new approach to diabetes management. It is available to employees enrolled in a Northrop Grumman Anthem medical plan. Click here for the overview.

Diabetes Kit

If you are enrolled in the High Premium/Low Deductible, Medium Premium/Medium Deductible or Low Premium/High Deductible Plan, you will pay only one copayment for your diabetes medication and supplies by ordering all of your supplies at the same time in 90-day quantities and filling your order at a CVS Pharmacy® or through the CVS Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy. Kits may include the following diabetes medications and supplies:

  • Insulin or oral medication
  • Alcohol wipes
  • Blood glucose test strips
  • Lancets and syringes

If filling at a CVS Pharmacy, please make sure the pharmacist processes the insulin or oral diabetes medication first. If the insulin or oral diabetes medication is not processed first, the copayment will apply to the other supplies.

If filling through the CVS Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy, the pharmacists have been instructed to process the insulin or oral diabetes medication first. Each time you refill all or part of the diabetes kit, you will pay another copayment. The appropriate copayment will be based on the highest-cost diabetes medication, and any additional medications and supplies will be at no cost to you. A diabetes medication (insulin or oral) must be included in the kit for the savings to apply. If only supplies are ordered, the appropriate copayment would apply for each item. Blood glucose meters are not included in the diabetes kits.

Coaching and Support

Your medical carrier offers health coaching for preventing and managing diabetes. Learn more or sign in here if you are an Anthem member or here if you are a Kaiser Permanente member to access wellness coaching.

Diabetes and Your Emotional Health

Managing diabetes is as much mental and emotional as it is physical. With so much of the treatment plan on your shoulders — no one else can eat right and exercise for you — attitude and motivation are crucial. The better you cope emotionally, the better you will do at keeping blood sugar (glucose) under control and preventing complications. Visit the  Achieve Solutions website for more information and remember you can talk to a licensed counselor 24/7 by calling the NGCare Employee Assistance Program (EAP) line at 800-982-8161.
