Wellness & Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

 

Employee health and well-being is important to the State of Wisconsin. We encourage employees to utilize the many well-being tools and resources available through the State of Wisconsin's Group Health Insurance Program including the Well Wisconsin incentive program to support you in living well.

 

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 2020 $150 incentive gift card, please complete these three steps by October 9, 2020:

 

·         Step 1: Complete a health screening (Or health care provider form)

·         Step 2: Complete the StayWell health assessment via the StayWell Wellness Portal

·         Step 3: 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 Million Steps Challenge and more via the StayWell Wellness Portal.

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.
