2020 MAA Wellness Program Notice_1.1.2018

For participants who may have an impairment – If you think you might be unable to participate in any of the program events, activities or goals, because of a disability you may be entitled to a reasonable accommodation for participation, or an alternative standard for rewards. For work-site accommodations please contact MAA Benefits Department at benefits@maac.com or 877-277-2327; for accommodations with online, phone or other Cigna programs, please contact Cigna at 800.244.6224. Protections from Disclosure of Medical Information We are required by law to maintain the privacy and security of your personally identifiable health information. Although the wellness program and MAA may use aggregate information it collects to design a program based on identified health risks in the workplace, Cigna, MotivateMe ® and MAA will never disclose any of your personal information either publicly or to the employer, except as necessary to respond to a request from you for a reasonable accommodation needed to participate in the wellness program, or as expressly permitted by law. Medical information that personally identifies you that is provided in connection with the wellness program will not be provided to your supervisors or managers and may never be used to make decisions regarding your employment. Your health information will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or otherwise disclosed except to the extent permitted by law to carry out specific activities related to the wellness program, and you will not be asked or required to waive the confidentiality of your health information as a condition of participating in the wellness program or receiving an incentive. Anyone who receives your information for purposes of providing you services as part of the wellness program will abide by the same confidentiality requirements. The personally identifiable health information that Cigna and MotivateMe ® receive will only be used in order to provide you with services under the wellness program. In addition, all medical information obtained through the wellness program will be maintained separate from your personnel records, and no information you provide as part of the wellness program will be used in making any employment decision. Although no one can prevent all cyber-attacks, Cigna has an information security program consisting of people, process, and technology – including encryption and monitoring tools designed to protect electronic information. We maintain safeguards intended to protect the security of your information. In the event a data breach, as defined by law, occurs involving information you provide in connection with the wellness program, we will notify you as required by law. You may not be discriminated against in employment because of the medical information you provide as part of participating in the wellness program, nor may you be subjected to retaliation if you choose not to participate. If you have questions or concerns regarding this notice, or about protections against discrimination and retaliation, please contact the Benefits Department at benefits@maac.com or 877-277-2327.
