Wellness Works Be Well Incentive Program rewards you for taking an active role in your health. If you are enrolled in a County-sponsored medical plan and complete the required Be Well activities, you could earn an incentive of up to $60/month or $720/year.
Here is a flyer that describes how to earn your incentive for Plan Years 2016-2017 AND 2017-2018.
Be Well Activities include a Biometric Screening (BS), a Health Assessment (HA), and a Tobacco-Free Activity (TFA)*. The (HA) and (BS) are required activities. Completing both of them will earn you an incentive of up to $40/month. If you also complete the TFA your incentive will increase to $60/month.
You can schedule your (BS) and complete your HA and TFA in the StayWell Portal starting July 5, 2016. The Biometric Screenings are scheduled July 19 - September 30, at various County worksites.
The Health Assessment takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. You can complete it either before or after your Biometric Screening. Once you click "Finish and View Results" the Health Assessment is locked until the next program year.
You have two options for completing the Tobacco-Free Activity.
- If you have been tobacco-free for the past six months, select the Tobacco-Free Confirmation, and confirm that you do not use tobacco.
- If you are a smoker, you have two options: either complete six onsite Quit Tobacco classes or five calls with a StayWell Health Coach.
Beginning this year, a tobacco screening is not required for you to receive your tobacco-free incentive.
If you do not complete your PY 16-17 Be Well Activities by September 30, 2016 your incentive will stop on November 2, 2016. If you miss the deadline, you can still complete your activities to receive your wellness incentive on a prospective basis.
The Be Well Activities you complete between July 5, 2016 – September 30, 2016, will carry over to Plan Year 2017-2018 and will convert to points. If you earn $60/month, 60 points will carry over. If you earn $40/month, 40 points will carry over.
As you complete your Be Well Activities in PY 16-17*, your $60 will carry over to PY17-18, and will convert to 60 points. All you need to do is earn an additional 20-40 points from the Rewarding Activities category to accumulate either a total of 80 points ($40/month) or 100 points ($60/month). To learn more about the Rewarding Activities visit the incentive page on your StayWell Portal.
If you do not complete a TFA, you can only earn a maximum of 80 points ($40/month.)
Please note: If you do not complete your Be Well Activities by May 31, 2017, you will not qualify for a Wellness Incentive in Plan Year 2017-2018. No exceptions.
