Well Wisconsin Program Incentive Update

During It’s Your Choice 2018 open enrollment period, ETF communicated plans to move the program incentive from a gift card to a State Group Health premium reduction in 2019 for active state employees. This transition will not occur for 2019; Well Wisconsin program participation in 2018 will NOT affect premium rates in 2019. Eligible participants will receive the $150 gift card for 2018 upon successful completion of the incentive program through StayWell before the deadline, 10/19/18; program requirements must again be completed in 2019 to receive the 2019 incentive reward.
