What is the Wellness Monthly Incentive?

The Wellness Monthly Incentive is a $25 monthly payment awarded to medical plan participants who complete three wellness activities on or before November 30th annually. Staff who receive paychecks twice a month will receive $12.50 in each paycheck. The wellness activities are the Health Risk Assessment, and at least two of these three activities: Biometric Screening, Primary Care Provider Attestation and/ or Tobacco Attestation Form. The incentive encourages people to learn about their health and to identify steps to improve well-being. In addition, those activities help the university evaluate health and wellness needs of faculty and staff. Recipients of the Wellness Monthly Incentive are considered “Wellness Participants.” (Please Note: Wellness earnings are taxable)
