About the Well Wisconsin Incentive Program

The Well Wisconsin incentive is the uniform wellness benefit available to employees and their spouses currently enrolled in the State of Wisconsin Group Health Insurance Program. To earn your 2018 $150 gift card please complete these three steps by October 19, 2018:

  • Step 1: Complete a health screening

  • Step 2: Complete the StayWell health assessment

  • Step 3: NEW in 2018 – complete a StayWell well-being activity

Employees and spouses can complete these steps and access additional tools and resources, including free one-on-one health coaching, the 21-Day Meditation Experience, and the Million Steps Challenge via the StayWell wellness portal account.

Note: Participants in this program may receive outreach calls from StayWell offering to enroll the employee or spouse in the voluntary health coaching or disease management programs. These programs are free and confidential. If you do not wish to participate in StayWell's health coaching, simply ask to be removed from StayWell's outreach call list.


Attending On-Site Health Screenings

You may attend an on-site health screening hosted by your employer during your regular work hours for no loss of pay with prior approval from a supervisor. For more details, please review the Department of Administration Division of Personnel Management policy on this topic.


Is the $150 gift card taxable income?

Yes. All incentives paid to participants of the State of Wisconsin Group Health Insurance Programs are considered taxable income to the group health plan subscriber and are reported to your employer for tax purposes. Contact your employer with questions about when the incentive will be reported on your paystub or questions about the tax withholdings.

Health information, including responses to the health assessment, are protected by federal law and will never be shared with your employer, ETF or the group health insurance board. Learn more about your privacy by reviewing StayWell's Privacy Statement and ETF's Notice for Wellness Programs.
