2019 Wellness Program

The County is pleased to build on its commitment to employee wellness in 2019 by continuing to offer the $500/$1,000 wellness incentive payments to employees, spouses and retirees who are enrolled in the health insurance plans.

Any big changes from last year’s program?
Yes, there are two major changes:
1) This year’s program is administered by the Ozaukee County Human Resources Department. This means applicable forms will be submitted directly to HR, and you will not have access to a wellness portal to check your points. To check points, contact Ellen Jarr in HR at ejarr@co.ozaukee.wi.us. I recommend you keep copies of your activities until it is verified you have earned 600 points.
2) An employee can earn a $500 incentive even if their spouse does not participate. However, a spouse cannot earn an incentive if the employee does not complete the program.

What is the incentive?

An employee can earn $500. If an employee has a spouse, the spouse may also participate and the couple can earn $1,000. A spouse cannot earn an incentive if the employee does not complete the program.

How do I earn the incentive?
You must participate in the preventive care and wellness activities that are defined on Page 2 of the "2019 Wellness Program Guide" (attached below). Each activity has a point value assigned to it. To earn the incentive, an individual must earn 600 points.

What are the mandatory activities and program milestones?
April 30, 2019 – Biometric screening is a requirement and must be complete by 4/30/19.
December 20, 2019 – Preventative annual physical exam is a requirement and must be complete by 12/20/19.
December 20, 2019 – Last day to submit points.
