Wellness Credit Program

All associates, spouses and domestic partners who are enrolled in a Total Rewards medical plan (see Wellness Credit Program Guidelines on My HR for additional criteria) The My Health wellness credit program is designed to focus on what's important - you and your health. We want to support you in your efforts to be healthy and reward you with credits toward the cost of your Total Rewards medical coverage when you participate in certain activities and programs. Each year, we will outline specific activities that qualify for a wellness credit. If you participate in these activities and enroll in Total Rewards medical coverage the following year, you'll receive a credit toward that coverage. And if your spouse/domestic partner does the same, he or she can earn a wellness credit.
