The incentive requirements for 2017 have changed slightly based on input from the Employee Wellness Team. The wellness program year is divided into earning periods in which participants complete certain items to earn points towards receiving the incentive stipend payment for that earning period. The requirements for the first two earning periods will remain the same that is complete the screening/physician form and the health survey. For the 3rd and 4th earning period, you will need to earn 100 additional points on the beBetter wellness portal which must include one additional wellness activity. Please see the 2017 MaroonsRWell Incentive Chart for complete details on the wellness stipend incentives which are paid on the last pay period of each quarter.
