What is the City's Health Incentive Program?
Designed to motivate employees to live healthier lifestyles, the city offers an employee health incentive program. General government employees who earn 400 wellness points from Oct. 1, 2017, through Sept. 8, 2018, and complete the online health risk assessment at myCigna.com will earn a monthly financial incentive of $130 starting October 2018.
With this program, employees can earn a significant amount of points simply by taking part in annual biometric testing, which takes place each August. The remaining points can be earned by participating in activities that promote wellness, such as providing proof of regular gym visits, getting an annual flu shot, donating blood or attending on-site Wellness Speaker Forums.
For civil service employees, such as fire and police personnel, the path to earning a financial incentive will be solely based on fitness testing. Depending on the score, civil service employees can earn $50, $100 or $150 monthly.
As of Jan. 1, 2017, no additional I Win Retiree Insurance Credits can be accumulated; those already earned, however, will be maintained. Employee Service Credits for retiree health insurance will increase by $100 per category (e.g., employees with 20-plus years of service will receive $500 per month instead of $400).
Participation in the wellness program is voluntary and open to all full-time employees. Wellness logs are available in the Human Resources Department, City Hall, Third Floor, 825 W. Irving Blvd.
