The OC Healthy Steps wellness program is designed to help you become aware of your risk factors and key numbers that impact your health (such as your cholesterol and blood pressure), as well as to identify what you can do to maintain or improve your health. Committing to a healthier lifestyle means you increase your chances of staying active and healthy throughout your life. A healthier you means you feel your best and spend time doing the things you enjoy by avoiding chronic medical conditions.
In order to receive the Wellness Credit on your January 15, 2016 paycheck and to see your Wellness Participation Credit in your Open Enrollment Confirmation Statement, you must complete all three steps by August 21st.
However, if you were unable to complete them before the deadline, the County will be offering an extension period from 8/22 through 9/25/2015 with a delayed processing of your 2016 Wellness Credit.
The processing for the extension period will not be complete until after the 2016 Benefits Open Enrollment is finalized. If you choose the optional extension period your Open Enrollment Benefits Confirmation will not show that you did NOT complete the OC Healthy Steps but you will receive a corrected Benefits Confirmation Statement in late December when the extension processing is complete.
In addition, your biweekly health plan payroll deductions in 2016 may not be reduced to reflect your Wellness Participation Credit until February 11, 2016.
For more information or if you have questions, please call 1-800-492-9812.
