Employees at the Poker Walk behind an APA table

Be a Participant

All employees are encouraged to participate in the Western Wellness program.  In order to be eligible for the wellness incentive, employees must complete an annual health risk assessment, biometric screening, and a health coaching session. 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 and may be pro-rated quarterly depending on when you complete the program requirements.  If you complete the wellness program requirements by the specified date each year, you will receive the wellness incentive during the following calendar year. In order to maintain wellness program participation, you must complete the program requirements every calendar year. You can use the expandable menus below for new and returning participants to determine the steps that you need to take to become eligible for the incentive.

Assessment Due Date

Your annual wellness assessment needs to be completed by Thursday, Dec. 16, 2021, in order to qualify for the 2022 Western Wellness Incentive.

Assessments can be completed with Holtyn Wellness or your primary care provider. Currently, Holtyn Wellness is providing both in-person and telephonic assessments due to COVID-19. If you choose to complete your assessment with your medical care provider, you must print the Medical Provider Form and have it filled out and signed by your provider. Completed forms should be mailed or e-mailed to the addresses listed on the form and must be received by Thursday, December 16, 2021.

  • New Participants

    Welcome to One-to-One Worksite Wellness, provided by the experienced and trusted professionals at Holtyn Wellness. This is a service provided at no cost to you, to help you become the healthiest, happiest, most energetic person you can be...at your job and at home. You are now an important part of the WMU community with an employer willing to invest in you and your health.

    It starts with an online health survey followed by a Wellness Assessment at your worksite with your trained health coach. All personal information is confidential, and WMU only receives University-wide aggregate data. During your 30-minute session, your coach will conduct a Biometric Assessment (cholesterol/lipids, glucose, blood pressure, weight, BMI, waist and fitness) and review your health survey. You and your coach will then discuss any health concerns you have, setting specific achievable goals in areas where you are ready for a positive change. You will have access to a personal webpage that contains your health data and provides you with resources and information. You may also choose to do the online health survey and complete the biometrics and coaching session with either your primary care provider or Sindecuse Health Center.
