The purpose of this program is to encourage participation in activities, programs, lifestyle choices, and preventative care that will help us lead healthy lives.
Participation in the Wellness Program is completely voluntary and will not impact your health insurance nor your employment. The intent is purely to reward healthy behaviors and enhance your experience as an employee. This is a FREE program for you to participate in to receive extra cash for making healthy choices!
How will this work?
As an active employee of the City of Duluth, DECC, DAA or HRA, who is actively enrolled in our health insurance plan (or benefits eligible), you have the opportunity to earn points throughout the year by participating in preventative care for yourself, in programs and/or activities provided by the wellness program, and leading a healthy lifestyle. You can accumulate points throughout the program year and the only requirement is to complete your annual physical with your physician (an easy 100 points!) sometime within the program year in order for points to qualify.
The more points you earn, the more opportunities you have to earn money! Here is how the system works:
- PREVENTATIVE TIER - Earn a total of 250 points and you will earn $150; OR
- MAINTENANCE TIER - Earn a total of 600 points and you will earn a total of $300; OR
- PROGRESSIVE TIER - Earn 950 points in total and you will earn a total of $500
- The maximum amount employees can earn is $500 total
If you have an impairment or disability that makes you unable to participate in any of the program events, activities or goals, you may be entitled to a reasonable accommodation for participation or an alternative standard for rewards. Please contact Wellness Coordinator, Angel Hohenstein, and we will work to find a program that is right for you in light of your health status.
