Denton County’s Wellness at Work program provides employees an opportunity to improve their health and save money on their medical insurance premiums. Employees who chose to participate can perform wellness activities and accumulate points for those activities. Those who earn sufficient points will be eligible for a monthly discount off their medical insurance premium the following year.
Some activities through which employees can earn points include:
Body Mass Index (BMI) screenings
Comprehensive annual physicals
Exercising at least three times a week for 20 minutes
Non-use of tobacco products
Participating in wellness classes
Quitting tobacco, cholesterol
Some points can be self-declared; others will require documentation from your physician. Cholesterol, blood pressure, and BMI screenings are also provided twice a year to participants by the Health Department for free!
