Kent County Employee Benefits
Wellness Exam Cash Incentive
Employees may receive a cash wellness incentive equivalent to 2.5% of their medical and prescription premiums. To receive this cash, you must complete an annual physical, and you and your physician must complete the “Wellness Exam Attestation Form”.
An employee will receive the wellness cash when the annual physical has been completed and the employee and his/her physician complete and submit the “Wellness Exam Attestation Form”. Wellness cash incentives will be applied to the employee’s paycheck going forward from the date the form was received by Human Resources for the balance of the plan year.
Annual physicals screen for health issues that patients may not have noticed yet. Doctors may screen for a number of conditions during a physical, including cholesterol levels, diabetes and high blood pressure. Physicians may also screen for a number of common cancers, including breast, cervical, prostate and skin.
Annual physicals find and help treat problems; early intervention helps cure and even prevent diseases and disorders. During a physical, physicians can answer any health questions a patient might have. Doctors may give recommended immunizations that protect the patient from communicable diseases.
Non-Smoker/Attempting to Quit Wellness Incentive
Employees may receive a cash wellness incentive equivalent to 2.5% of their medical and prescription premiums by returning the “Non-Smoking Attestation Form”. In order to receive this wellness cash you must accurately indicate on the form that you are a non-smoker or, if you are a smoker that you will participate in a smoking cessation program.
