All employees are encouraged to participate in the Western Wellness program.  In order to be eligible for the wellness incentive, employees complete an annual health risk assessment, biometric screening, and a health coaching session. If you complete the wellness program requirements by the end of 2021, you will receive the wellness incentive during the calendar year 2022. To maintain wellness program participation, you must complete the program requirements every calendar year.

The wellness incentive is a reduction in your health plan contributions each pay period throughout the calendar year.  The current wellness incentive is $240 per calendar year.  This amount may be pro-rated quarterly depending on when you complete the program requirements.
