Program Incentive Update

During the It’s Your Choice 2018 open enrollment period, Employee Trust Funds (ETF) had communicated plans to move the program incentive from a gift card to a State Group Health premium reduction in 2019 for active state employees. It has been determined this transition will not occur for 2019, and Well Wisconsin program participation in 2018 will NOT affect premium rates in 2019. Participants will still receive the $150 gift card upon completion of the program steps in 2018 (program requirements must again be completed in 2019 to receive the 2019 incentive reward).
