Wellness Dividends are back for 2018!
This voluntary program is strictly confidential, and was developed and endorsed by the Labor-Management Benefits Committee in 2016. The Committee recognizes that a healthier workforce is a key part of keeping our health care costs as low as possible.
For two more years (through 2018), the annual dividend is dependent on the County’s overall health care experience. When the County’s premium increases are much lower than average, it results in a bigger Wellness Dividend to employees.
For 2018, when employees complete their Wellness Screening and Online Health Assessment by the end of June, they will receive a $250 Wellness Dividend on a November paycheck. Future years may be the same or less.
County and Court employees who are enrolled in the San Mateo County Kaiser or Blue Shield health plans as of June 1 of the current year (either as a primary subscriber or as a dependent of an employee) are eligible to receive a Wellness Dividend.
