Wellness Pays Bonus Program

Renewal Postponed

Many of you will be receiving an email stating that it is time for you to renew your Wellness Pays Bonus. Please continue to complete the first half of the renewal process by taking your Health Risk Assessment. The second step of the renewal process will be placed on hold as Employee Wellness is not able to conduct blood lipid screenings on campus.

Once we are all back on campus, Employee Wellness will contact you to schedule a blood lipid screening. As long as you were trying to renew your bonus during your 60-day renewal window, you will still earn the entire $360. Once Employee Wellness has your blood lipid screening results in hand, your bonus payment will be added to your paycheck retroactively.

Just a reminder, during the 2020 calendar year, all employees and their spouses who are covered under a WSU PEHP Insurance policy can complete the Bonus Program process and will receive the $360 yearly bonus. Everyone who tests will earn the bonus. Moving forward, Employee Wellness will use your 2020 test score as a benchmark and participants will then need to improve their score by 1 point in order to maintain the bonus.
